But former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger suggested after the game that the England striker was not fully over his injury issues as he looked off the pace, hinting Mourinho made a mistake selecting him.
“What we have learned from Tottenham, like I said before the game, Lloris doesn’t look to be at his best,” Wenger said on beIN SPORTS.
“Nor is Harry Kane. He looks physically, fitness-wise, not completely ready to play at that intensity.
“To me he looks still a bit injured on his ankle when he got hurt one time, he went down quickly and it was not a big hit.
“So with that handicap, Tottenham will have a difficult game.”
Mourinho insisted ahead of the game that he believed Kane was ready to start – but Wenger’s comments suggest he does not believe that was the case.
