Spurs Handed Massive Boost Ahead of Red Star Clash With Harry Kane Set For Return

​Mauricio Pochettino and Spurs have been given a significant boost for their trip to Red Star Belgrade as Harry Kane is set to return to the starting XI after recovering from a virus.

Kane was absent for Spurs' 1-1 draw at Everton on Sunday and many fans feared that the England skipper would miss the important Champions League clash in Belgrade. 

However, the north London club's official Instagram page confirmed that the 26-year-old had made the trip to Serbia - with the striker appearing on their Instagram story as the players boarded their flight.

His return provides Pochettino with a much-needed boost after the Lilywhites lacklustre performance at Goodison Park on Sunday. Going forward, they lacked a focal point against the physical Yerry Mina in the Everton backline as Lucas Moura struggled to fill the void left by Kane this time around.

Spurs' talisman will be looking to improve on his fine goalscoring record in this competition on Wednesday. In 22 Champions League appearances, Kane has 18 goals - three of those coming in the three group stage games so far this season, including a brace against Red Star in the reverse fixture two weeks ago.

Son Heung-min,Andre Gomes

The Evening Standard has also reported that Son Heung-min has also made the trip. There were doubts whether the South Korean would play on Wednesday after the events that unfolded on Sunday - where we saw Son visibly distressed after his tackle on Andre Gomes, a challenge that led to the Everton man suffering a fracture dislocation to his right ankle.

Nevertheless, the fixture in the Serbian capital on Wednesday is a big one for Pochettino's side. At the halfway mark in Group B, Bayern lead the way after winning three from three, while Spurs are just a point ahead of Wednesday's opponents in second.

The result in Belgrade will go a long way in determining who qualifies for the knockout phases.
