The team honours may have passed Tottenham by for the 13th season running, but Harry Kane is still after another individual accolade of his own, as the England captain took his tally to 22 Premier League goals for the season with his side’s opener on the stroke of half time against Wolves on Sunday.
Kane finds himself level with Mohamed Salah – who also made the net ripple in gameweek 36 – as the race for the Golden Boot hots up, and a rare goal from Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg wrapped up the three points for Tottenham in the 62nd minute against Nuno Espirito Santo‘s side.
Amid increasing speculation surrounding the imminent appointment of Jose Mourinho‘s successor – with new names being linked with the job week after week – Ryan Mason has guided Spurs to three victories from his four Premier League games in charge as the Lilywhites lie sixth in the rankings, but only ahead of West Ham United on goal difference.
Fifth-placed Liverpool could move out of sight should they get the better of Burnley in midweek, but Spurs will be desperate to sign off with a positive result at home for the final time this season, and the hosts can boast six wins from their last seven league games at their headquarters.
Spurs ought to be lifted by the voices of 10,000 fans cheering them on as coronavirus restrictions ease – although a fair few of them may simply be there to protest against Daniel Levy – and a fourth home win on the bounce will be no less than their supporters desire when an out-of-sorts Villa pay a visit.
The 10,000 supporters returning to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium may be robbed of the chance to see the dream front four of Kane, Gareth Bale, Dele Alli and Heung-min Son, however, with Mason saying the Wales forward may not be ready to start again.
“I am not sure,” Mason said of Bale.
“He also knows his body. He is a question mark for tomorrow. We are not sure whether or not he is going to be ready. It is down to the player, he is experienced enough. We’ll see.”
