Bad news for Chelsea ahead of Tottenham FA Cup showdown

The Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern have been longing for the return of Harry Kane…

The English forward has missed several weeks worth of action after picking up an ankle injury, with a few of the more cynical fans in the Transfer Tavern fearful that he could miss out for the rest of the season.

Indeed, the Chelsea fans were feeling pretty confident ahead of their FA Cup clash – with the two clubs set to take each other on in an FA Cup Semi Final. Of course, Harry Kane’s absence would have made the game infinitely easier for Chelsea.

However, in what has come as a blow to the Chelsea fans in the pub – the Mirror are reporting that Harry Kane could yet be available for the clash – with Tottenham certainly not ruling out a role for Kane on the day.

It is said that he could be available as early as the week before the game, leaving him ample time to regain his fitness.

The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are very disappointed with this, as the return of Kane will surely make life tough for the Blues. Of course, Kane has been even more deadly than Diego Costa this year – so there is no doubting the influence that he might have.

Of course, Tottenham will have extra motivation leading into the clash, with Mauricio Pochettino likely keen to gain back some credibility from Chelsea with the Blues currently running away with the Premier League table.

Of course, it isn’t all good news for Tottenham, though, with reports confirming that Erik Lamela won’t feature again this season.
