'Very well': Conte says one Spurs star has been brilliant in training the last two days, could start v Brentford

Antonio Conte has been speaking about all things Spurs ahead of Tottenham facing Brentford on Boxing Day, including Harry Kane.

The England skipper’s inclusion in the squad to face the Bees has been under the spotlight. Kane returned slightly earlier than he’d have wanted to from Qatar, after England were eliminated in the quarter-finals.

Of course, Kane’s professionalism and commitment to the Tottenham cause has never been in question. Indeed, he has been pictured back in training this week and apparently even told his teammates this week he’d be ready to face Brentford.

And speaking to Football London in his press conference today, Antonio Conte appeared to hint that Kane will indeed be playing, after impressing in training.

“I am not worried about him. I saw him very well in these last two days with us,” Conte told his presser.

Kane’s return to the starting XI will be a huge boost for Conte and Spurs. The England striker has been in fine form all season long. And with the likes of Cuti Romero not available, his experience will be vital.

Tottenham are in the top four but ended up going into the break eight points behind Arsenal at the top of the table.

TBR’s View: Kane will play for Tottenham v Brentford

If Harry Kane is remotely close to being fit, then he is playing for Tottenham against Brentford. It’s as simple as that.

Kane is too important for Spurs not to play him and at this moment in time, they need to win and keep in the top four race.

Other teams are also nursing players back into the fold from the World Cup. In a way, that could give Spurs a small opening to press on and pick some points up. Kane, then, will be crucial to that effort of getting results.
