Tottenham Hotspur's English striker Harry Kane receives medical attention after picking up an injury during their English Premier League match against Bournemouthat the Vitality Stadium in Bournemouth southern England

Totenham Hotspur manager, Mauricio Pochettino on Thursday said his team would be under as much pressure as London rivals Chelsea on Sunday in the English Premier League, EPL.

Spurs released injury news via Twitter today and confirmed that Harry Kane will miss the match as he continues to rehabilitate from an ankle injury sustained in the win over Bournemouth a couple of weeks ago.

The gap between fourth-placed Tottenham and Chelsea now stands at a place and five points, and another three would nearly certainly leave Mauricio Pochettino's team out of reach of their London rivals with seven games left to play.

"We need to assess him", he said, per Jack Rosser of the Evening Standard. We need to assess in the next few days.

"I think it's always a massive game because it's a London derby", he said. I can not give opinions about a context that I wasn't there [for]. Maybe next weekend. But the most important is that we are so positive about his recovery, and we are doing fantastic, and we are so happy.

Pochettino, who ranks Spurs' rivalry with Chelsea on a par with Arsenal, does not think it is a winner-takes-all game.

She said investigators, who have opened a criminal investigation into the blaze , were looking into other possible violations. The cause of the blaze is not yet known but authorities have launched an investigation.

Kane's injury has dented his chances as finishing the season as the Premier League top-scorer - which would be his third successive campaign winning the award - as his 24 goals have been eclipsed by Mohamed Salah's tally of 28 goals.

Harry Kane has been ruled out of Spurs' game against Chelsea this weekend, handing the Blues a major injury boost.

"When you play this type of game, the pressure is for both teams". Both Chelsea and Spurs have Champions League ambitions, and this game will go a long way in deciding who plays in Europe next season. It is not a decisive game that is going to put you in one or another position.

"But, for us, three points for us will be fantastic".

"To win against Chelsea would be fantastic for everyone but it will be a very tough game - they are a very good team and it is always tough to compete with them".
