Kane, Lloris fit for Tottenham’s showdown with Arsenal

Posted on Nov 18 2017 - 12:58pm by admin

Tottenham stars Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Hugo Lloris were fit to feature in the starting line-up for Saturday’s north London derby against Arsenal.

Kane and Alli missed England’s recent friendlies against Germany and Brazil with knee and hamstring injuries respectively, while France goalkeeper Lloris was sidelined by a groin problem during the international break.

But Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino was able to select all three at the Emirates Stadium.

Harry Winks, who also missed England’s friendlies with an ankle problem, was named among Tottenham’s substitutes.

With France striker Olivier Giroud injured on international duty, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger started with Alexandre Lacazette up front.

Wenger had previously left out Lacazette for Arsenal’s marquee clashes with Liverpool and Manchester City this season.

Third-placed Tottenham are four points ahead of sixth-placed Arsenal in the Premier League going into the first north London derby of the season.
