The Tottenham hitman faces a race against the clock to be fit for this fixture. Spurs have had no issues when it comes to avoid defeat, but recently goalscoring has proved to be an issue. The return of the England international - who scored 28 times last season - would be a massive boost for Pochettino's side.
