Spurs' Kane to step up EPL ankle recovery

Tottenham Hotspur have the belief in themselves to be English Premier League champions, insisted manager Mauricio Pochettino after his side found the mental and physical resources to net another late victor to beat Newcastle United 1-0 and leapfrog Manchester City into second place on Saturday. "We're stepping it up and we'll see next week how it goes", said Kane, who was in Atlanta to watch the Super Bowl.

"They've not really done that and although they're getting results, I still don't see them as being title contenders at this moment in time". It is just about how it feels.

Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris has praised the mentality of his team mates after his side won their third league game in a row last time out against Newcastle. Spurs takes on Borussia Dortmund in Champions League knockout round play in 10 days, and will nearly certainly be without Kane, but a March 5 second leg would be a match Kane could be targeting for a return, if not earlier if the rehab is ahead of schedule.

Spurs, who will assess Son Heung-min after his midweek exertions on his first game back from global duty, will climb into second place and four points behind leaders Liverpool, albeit temporarily, if they win the lunchtime kick-off.

"You know him very well, he is very strong and is a guy that puts 200 per cent in to be back as soon as possible".
