Mauricio Pochettino hints Harry Kane could miss title-defining Premier League clash 

The striker was left out of the matchday squad for Spurs' Carabao Cup defeat to West Ham

But if Kane is set to miss the game, then that spell disaster for a large portion of Dream Team managers.

The England forward – who’s the most expensive player on the game this season – has been picked by over 48% of fantasy football managers.

And with good reason.

The towering-forward has amassed a tasty total of 129 points so far, making him by-far the best player to have in your team.

Time to make a change?
