Harry Kane will be fit to face Arsenal - Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has said star striker Harry Kane will be fit for the derby at Arsenal a week on Saturday.

Kane withdrew from the England squad earlier this week after picking up a knock in Spurs' win over Crystal Palace on Sunday.

Although he will sit out the international friendlies against Germany and Brazil at Wembley, he is set to return to action for his club at the Emirates Stadium on Nov. 18.

Speaking at the launch of "Brave New World," a new book about Pochettino's Tottenham, the manager said: "Harry Kane is OK.

"You can see in the last game he received a kick to his knee, but he will be available for the next game."

Kane has scored six times in his last six matches against North London rivals Arsenal, but Spurs could be without Dele Alli, who has a hamstring injury, and Harry Winks (twisted his ankle).

Goalkeepers Hugo Lloris (groin) and Michel Vorm (knee) and defender Toby Alderweireld (hamstring) are also struggling.

Pochettino also said he was "in love" with Daniel Levy because the Tottenham chairman has given him the chance to "write history" at the club.

"It's true that sometimes I don't want to be so kind with Daniel because Daniel knows more than me that sometimes we have differences, but I am in love with him," Pochettino said to an audience including Levy.

"Because he is the type of person who gave me one day, three and a half years ago, the possibility to be here.

"To be able to write some history for this amazing club, to start to discover a different style of club, a different kind of project. To be here to me is more than a pleasure. I am so happy and my family and that is why I am so proud."
