Tottenham boss allays fears of Harry Kane issue ahead of Norwich
Antonio Conte spoke to the media on Friday ahead of Tottenham Hotspur’s final outing of the 2021/22 Premier League campaign.
Tottenham will face off with Norwich City at 4 pm UK time on Sunday at the same time the remaining 18 Premier League sides are in action.
Conte discussed a number of topics ahead of the game, including Harry Kane.
Ahead of the game, it has been reported that Harry Kane has been feeling unwell and has cancelled a media appointment on Friday:
Kane feeling unwell, not 100% and will be assessed ahead of #THFC’s trip to Norwich.
No other players feeling unwell and no suggestion of food poisoning outbreak.

However, Conte has since confirmed he expects Kane to be fine to feature vs Norwich:
Antonio confirms they have had some issues but expects Kane to be ready for the game on Sunday.
Also said a few weeks ago they had similar issues with Kulusevski but he recovered in time to play.

Norwich City vs Tottenham
Tottenham head into the Norwich clash knowing that a Champions League spot is very much within their grasp.
After beating Burnley last weekend and watching Arsenal collapse vs Newcastle United, Spurs are now 4th in the Premier League ahead of the final day, two points above Arsenal with a much better goal difference.
This means that all Tottenham need to do on Sunday to secure a top-four berth is beat or draw with Norwich.
And given Norwich are dead bottom of the Premier League with the worst attack and defence in the division, it seems certain that Conte and co. will be plying their trade in Europe’s premier club competition going forward.
