IS KANE ABLE?

Injury and suspension update ahead of Game Week 38: Conte gives Kane illness verdict, Salah ‘risk’, Man Utd latest

Dream Team brings you all the latest injury and suspension news ahead of Game Week 38 in one easily digestible dose.

Tottenham supporters were plunged into panic after reports emerged that talisman Harry Kane (£7.9m) had cancelled a media event due to illness.

However, manager Antonio Conte is confident the striker will be fit and available for their all-important clash against Norwich at Carrow Road.

Asked whether Kane would play, Conte said: “Yes for sure, and because in the last game we had Kulusevski and he didn’t train on Saturday but was good to play. Harry doesn’t want to miss this type of game.”

Cristian Romero (£3.5m), Japhet Tanganga (£1.8m), Matt Doherty (£2.9m) and Sergio Reguilon (£3.8m) are all sidelined for Spurs, while Ben Gibson (£0.7m) and Billy Gilmour (£1m) are major doubts for Norwich.

Arsenal have reported no new injury concerns as they seek to secure Champions League football.

Alexandre Lacazette (£3.6m), Nicolas Pepe (£3.4m) and Gabriel Martinelli (£1.9m) could all return after starting on the bench against Newcastle.

Frank Lampard is expected to make several changes after his side secured Premier League safety on Thursday.

It was the Toffees’ third game in seven days, so the likes of Dele Alli (£1.1m), Allan (£0.9m), Donny van de Beek (£1.1m) and Ben Godfrey (£1.3m) could start.

Liverpool are unlikely to risk Mohamed Salah

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp wasn’t overly optimistic that injured trio Mohamed Salah (£7.2m), Virgil van Dijk (£6.6m) and Fabinho (£3.1m) would feature against Wolves.

The German said the trio ‘have made steps’ but stressed that no risks would be taken with Salah.

He said: “It looks good and the boys have made steps, but we will see. I cannot say 100 percent.

“We actually understand 100 percent the goalscoring battle with Son Heung-Min, but there’s no chance we take any risk. Mo doesn’t want to take any risks, I’ve no doubt about that.”

Max Kilman (£3.5m), Romain Saiss (£3.1m) and Nelson Semedo (£2.9m) remain sidelined for the visitors.

Manchester City could welcome back defenders John Stones (£5.6m) and Kyle Walker (£3.9m), who both returned to training. Aston Villa rested Danny Ings (£2.9m) and Philippe Coutinho (£2.9m) against Burnley, and are likely to start.

Paul Pogba (£3.1m) remains out for Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick’s last game in charge. Luke Shaw (£2.6m) and Jadon Sancho (£2.4m) have been back in training this week but could miss out.
