Mauricio Pochettino is still yet to decided whether he will start Harry Kane against Liverpool tonight.
The prolific English forward has been injured since the first leg of the Champions League quarter-finals. He was ruled out for the remainder of the season but the 25-year-old has managed to overcome the ankle sprain.
Kane has appeared for training and is eligible for selection. However, the Argentine boss has been pressed with making the hard decision of choosing either the Englishman or Lucas.
“We have one training session now and then we are going to decide,” Pochettino told a news conference. “It’s normal you are asking me, it’s difficult for you to be in my place or different coaches, it’s normal, it’s not easy.
“Making a decision will not be easy, the last games we played, the quarters and semis, the last 16, every game you need to take a decision.
“Tomorrow is another decision, for sure we have all the information, every single detail, we take the best decision to win. Like always it’s painful in football you can only use 11 players it’s the most painful situation.
“From the first moment [of a career] when you play with seven, then go to 11, you know your team-mates who are in the training may not play.
“For me, respect must be massive for the players who are selected and we want to show that. Tough decisions are painful but it’s part of my job to pick the starting XI and to try to win the game.”
