Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino says that Harry Kane could receive his first Premier League start of the season against Aston Villa on Sunday.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has suggested that Harry Kane could make his first Premier League start following a prolific run in front of goal.

The 21-year-old is the leading goalscorer at White Hart Lane this season with eight goals, but is yet to be named in the starting lineup for Pochettino in the league.

While the Argentine boss has praised Kane's qualities, the coach is also impressed with Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado.

According to Sky Sports News, when asked if Kane could start in Sunday's match against Aston Villa, Pochettino said: "Yes, maybe. We are very happy with him. Everyone is very important, but it's not difficult. It's a good thing he is scoring goals.

"Always we manage, share the minutes [between the strikers]. We are happy with all our strikers. Adebayor scored against Newcastle, Soldado was very, very good the last game. Harry the same."

Tottenham will head to the Midlands following back-to-back defeats.
