Man Utd get their Premier League campaign back under way on Friday night as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer faces Jose Mourinho.

 

 

Toby Alderweireld believes Manchester United will face the Harry Kane of old when the teams meet on Friday evening.

Tottenham Hotspur star Kane underwent hamstring surgery on January 1st in a procedure that looked likely to rule him out of the majority – if not all – of the rest of the season.

Yet the coronavirus suspension has given Kane time to get fit and he is now in training ahead of Spurs’ first game back, against United on Friday night.

Alderweireld now says any fears that the long break may leave Kane rusty are unfounded and that the striker looks as good as ever in training.

“In training he looks fully fit, top fit, so we’re going to see the old Kane again,” the Spurs defender told the Guardian.

“He has been out for a longer period so his desire to show everyone is unbelievable, so you’re going to see a very good Kane.”

With Spurs seven points off the Premier League’s top four, Friday’s game against fifth-placed United is a vital one if they want to qualify for the Champions League, and Alderweireld is not playing down the importance of their remaining fixtures.

He added: “I know it’s a cliché but it’s nine games and we have to see it as nine finals

“We have to get good momentum and the first is a very big game. We are going to do everything we can to reach the top four.”

A three-month break from competitive action is not ideal for professional footballers, but the 31-year-old revealed that Spurs players made sure that the lay-off was approached differently to a summer holiday.

He said: “Everyone went into ‘beast mode’ – training, training.

“We didn’t know when we were going back. Maybe the week after, two weeks after.

“So people think we were on holiday but we sure weren’t.

“When we were back training we felt like: ‘I’m ready,’ not like in pre-season when it’s: ‘Oh, I have to start all over again, I feel muscle pain.”
