Asteras v Tottenham preview – Spurs set for another victory
Harry Kane set to star for Spurs in Greece tonight
November 6th, 2014
The penny is starting to drop for Mauricio Pochettino who looks set to make Harry Kane his first choice striker ahead of Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado.
Kane has shone every time he has featured for Tottenham this season and the England youngster should feature this evening as the Premier League side look to follow up their 5-1 win against Asteras with another victory.
Pochettino will have one eye on Sunday’s clash against Stoke City although victory can be achieved on Thursday night by rotating his squad and the Argentine knows that the international break follows the coming weekend.
Ahead of the Europa League group match, Kane insisted: “I feel fit and ready and I feel I could play a game every day if I could. That’s the confidence I’m feeling at the moment and I just want to be playing football, no matter what game it is. We want to win a trophy this season and we have a good chance in the Europa League and the Capital One Cup.
“I can understand that the manager wants everyone to be fresh, though, as it is a long season. We’re taking all competitions seriously this year and he is a great manager, very enthusiastic. He knows what he wants, he demands a lot from you and the players have really taken to that.
“He likes doing individual training if he feels it is needed and that’s something he’s done with me. We’ve worked on movement around the edge of the penalty area for through balls coming into me. You can only gain good experience from that kind of work.”
