Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has stated that although Harry Kane is a miss, he feels the Premier League side have enough quality in attack to deputise for the goalscoring star.

The England international picked up an ankle injury in the 6-0 victory over Millwall in the FA Cup last weekend and is expected to now spend a prolonged period on the sidelines.

As such, Tottenham will have to show that they can cope without their talisman and have the likes of Vincent Janssen and Son Heung-min to call upon.

The Dutch striker has not adapted well to English football as yet but the Netherlands international has also only been handed fleeting chances to prove himself in the Spurs team.

Son’s versatility is an attribute that is important to the Tottenham attack and the South Korea international has shown in the past that he has the quality to lead the line if required.

Pochettino stated on Friday that he had not made up his mind as to who would play in Kane’s place but he was confident of both options.

“No, not yet. We have some doubts in the team and we need to see tomorrow at the last training session to decide the starting XI for Sunday,” he told the club’s official website.

“We have different options (up front) – you could see in the last game against Millwall.

“At the beginning of the season Harry got injured in the Sunderland game and we missed him for nearly two months but we played with different options – with Son, with Vincent Janssen. We used different players but we are sure that we will play well.

“Of course, Harry is a player that you will always miss but I am very happy with the squad and the players that can replace him. We are sure that we can play well, score goals and win games.”
