Pochettino Expects Kane Back this Season

Dele Alli of Tottenham Hotspur shoots at goal during the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 Second Leg match between Tottenham Hotspur and Juventus at Wembley Stadium

"With different players, it's the same", Pochettino said.

The statistics bear this out as he is joint-top of the list of goals and assists made by 21-year-olds in Europe's biggest five leagues this season.

Tottenham Hotspur can cope with the loss of Harry Kane to injury and the absence of their prolific striker will not be used as an excuse if the team suffers a dip in form, manager Mauricio Pochettino said on Thursday.

The Belgium global has been sidelined for a month with a hamstring problem and he missed both legs of the Champions League last-16 defeat to Juventus. "Maybe I am not objective because he is my player but, for me, he is fantastic".

Kane damaged ankle ligaments at Bournemouth; the expectation at the club is that he will miss about four weeks.

"Yes, of course", the Argentine said on prospects of a return before the end of the campaign.

When Kane was injured twice with the same problem last season, he missed seven weeks from September, then just over three weeks from March. "He put his leg in the washing machine for the team to try to score - against Sunderland, Millwall and now, because he's so fearless".

Toby Alderweireld is back in training this week after recovering from a hamstring injury but this game is likely to come too soon as I don't think Pochettino will rush him back.

"We are talking about one of the best strikers in the world, you can not compare [him] with the others [in the squad]", said the Tottenham boss.

The club's last trophy success was their League Cup triumph in the 2007-08 season, but they face Swansea in an FA Cup quarter-final on Saturday and are one of the favourites to win the competition.

The Spurs boss added: "The reality is with his crutch and boot, we need to assess him day by day and look at the reaction".

"Juventus was a massive game and this is a massive game as well if we want to have the option of winning a title at the end".
