Jose Mourinho believes Harry Kane will play in the north London derby with Arsenal despite an unspecified injury.
Erik Lamela, Carlos Vinicius and Sergio Reguilon have injuries, Mourinho told a media conference: “Lamela is in an injury from three weeks, a month, I don’t believe he has a chance for the weekend. Harry, Vinicius and Sergio – there is a chance for the weekend.”
He continued: “I’m not going to tell you the nature of his [Kane’s] injury. I think he has a good chance [of playing against Arsenal]. I don’t want to lie, I don’t want to hide anything in relation to is he going to play or not? I think he’s going to play. That’s my feeling is that he’s going to play.”
Kane has seven goals in 10 Premier League games this season and is converting 67 per cent of his big chances.
His strike partner Son Heung-min is slightly better, with converting 70 per cent of his big chances.
“Arsenal doesn’t come into our thinking. When you make changes, you make changes based on problems that we had. When we do that, we put trust on the players we have. We don’t weaken the team because the Premier League match is next.” said Mourinho.
