Jose Mourinho has played down fears Tottenham striker Harry Kane suffered an injury in the Europa League victory over Dinamo Zagreb, just three days before the north London derby against Arsenal.

‘Harry I don’t believe is anything big,’ Mourinho said. ‘Sunday is a match everyone wants to play and little things will not stop him. I don’t have the feeling it is anything serious.

‘He is doing everything. He is doing the striker job of scoring goals. The team work of creating space and linking play and the extra work not many strikers do in defence.

‘He helps us a lot. He has an incredible number of clearances from crosses and corners. We couldn’t be happier.

‘I gave a rest to many of the players and am so happy with what Vinicius is giving us. But with Harry on the pitch it is a different story for us.’
