Kane benched for Swansea trip after illness

"You present it as a hard situation but when you have Harry Kane it is not a problem", the Spurs manager replied.

With top scorer Harry Kane struggling with flu, Heung-Min Son could lead the line against the Swans.

Son is idolised in his native South Korea, and has been called the Asian David Beckham.

Jesse Lingard's scoring run at Manchester United now places him in a bracket alongside Tottenham's record-breaking Harry Kane. It's like a player that is next to Messi or Ronaldo who deserves a lot of credit.

"But it is good to recognise him". It took two incredibly late goals for Swansea to come away with the three points, but the result will give the players a lot of confidence. He was very important for us last season. "Not only because of his performances but because of how he is as a man". Even so, Son was a prolific scoerer.

Fernando Llorente scored his first Premier League goal for Tottenham Hotspur to help inflict a 2-0 defeat on his former club Swansea City this evening.

"Do the players appreciate him?"

However, they will have a tough challenge to contend with in the clash going by the form of their opponent coupled by their unimpressive displays lately which had left them at the base of the log with 16 points from 21 ties. The likes of Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen still possess bags of talent, and if Kane does indeed start then this should be a fairly safe bet.

It's that ability to score goals, either poacher's efforts or worldies from distance, that has endeared him to Pochettino.

"But I am happy with people like Son, who is not a specialist". The striker is reportedly ill, but it is still unclear whether or not he will play in this game, or be rested by Mauricio Pochettino. He is not a winger but can play on the wing.
