Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has revealed that striker Harry Kane is facing a race to be fit for Tuesday's clash with Swansea City after suffering from illness.
Kane, who netted his eighth hat-trick of the year in Spurs' 5-2 win over Southampton, also broke Alan Shearer's record for Premier League goals in a calendar year at Wembley.
Pochettino, however, has said that there are doubts over his fitness ahead of the club's trip to the Liberty Stadium.
"[Kane] is cold, like me," the Argentine told his pre-match press conference. "He's at home, the doctor was at his house.
"We'll see," he added when asked if Kane would be fit. "I don't know if he'll be available or not. We'll see how he reacts."
Spurs are fifth in the Premier League table, one point outside the top four.
