The striker was sidelined for at least a month after damaging ankle ligaments in the 1-0 defeat to Manchester United at Wembley.

It did to an extent, as Spurs crashed out of both the Carabao Cup and FA Cup in the same week.

Kane is on course to return ahead of his scheduled March comeback according to Pochettino, but he and Alli will miss Leicester's visit to Wembley. We'll see what happens. "We know Jamie (Vardy) after a loss he is angry, it's normal for a player", Puel told a news conference ahead of Sunday's league trip to Tottenham Hotspur.

"He's very optimistic and determined to play as soon as possible - it's unbelievable but he's doing well, if you see him he's almost ready to play but we need to be realistic too and of course in between all the areas to take the best decision".

"He's doing well, he's almost ready to play but we need to be realistic too and in between all the areas to take the best decision. I think he's so close to come back again, not for Sunday and not for Wednesday, but we'll see after", Pochettino said.

When asked if he'll be involved for that fixture, Pochettino replied: "Maybe, maybe".

Yet, with City and Liverpool still to face the north Londoners later this season, Winks is adamant they can't be counted out yet.

The match against Burnley on February 23 would see Kane return in time for Premier League clashes with Chelsea and Arsenal, as well as Spurs' Champions League last-16 second leg against Borussia Dortmund.

Pochettino also denied that he and assistant coach Jesus Perez had a secret dinner date with David Beckham and Zinedine Zidane during the week.

"I was with Jesus and another person".

Tottenham sits third in the Premier League table, a significant achievement to be in that position after grinding out three one-goal league victories despite the riddled roster.

"We only said hello because we met by coincidence there but then the story appears and how do you stop it?"
