The Lilywhites now find themselves five points behind second-placed Liverpool FC as they look to try and keep themselves in the title race.

Kane has sustained three separate ankle injuries since the start of the 2016-17 season but defied expectations by recovering from a setback at the end of last season ahead of schedule and Pochettino suggested he could repeat the trick once more.

Leicester, meanwhile, head into Sunday's game in stuttering form, with the Foxes having won only one of their last five Premier League games.

Tottenham Hotspur star striker Harry Kane will hand his manager Mauricio Pochettino a massive injury boost by returning earlier than he was expected.

"He's very optimistic and determined to play as soon as possible - it's unbelievable but he's doing well, if you see him he's almost ready to play but we need to be realistic too and of course in between all the areas to take the best decision".

"My gut feeling is that it's going to be tough but my wish, my hope and my dream is to finish this season playing in the new stadium", Pochettino said.

All scheduled gigs have been postponed as Buckingham heals. "He looks forward to recovery and putting this behind him". His former band mates have publicly expressed good wishes to Buckingham, tweeting: "We are saddened by this news".

He said in a press conference: "It's not frustration, I think in another country, clubs that are involved in Europe always get helped".

Tottenham announced on Thursday that their north London derby against Arsenal on March 2 would be played at Wembley as the finishing touches are applied to their 62,000-seater home.

"I think it's not fair when you compete like this, but we will try to win and perform in the best way".

"He's so close to come back again. Not for Sunday, not for Wednesday but we will see after".

Pochettino also took the time to address speculation after he was pictured leaving a West End restaurant which Zinedine Zidane and David Beckham had also been eating in.

"Jesus said "look in the corner, who it is", then I saw these two people with two people more". It's been good because we can work and at the same time, we can breathe a little.
