Harry Kane is set to lead Tottenham Hotspur's attack when they face Arsenal in the north London derby at the Emirates on 6 November. The England international last featured for his side in their 1-0 victory over Sunderland in September, where he scored the only goal of the match.

The striker was out of action after he damaged his ankle ligaments in Spurs' victory over the Black Cats and has missed fixtures for both his club and country. He has already returned to training ahead of the upcoming big clash.

According to The Guardian, Kane is set to make a comeback when Tottenham face their arch-rivals on Sunday. This will be a huge boost for the White Hart Lane outfit, who have struggled since the last international break.

Tottenham are without a win in the last six matches played in all competitions, which includes two defeats in the EFL Cup and the Champions League. Despite the poor form, they are the only unbeaten side in the Premier League.

Kane's return to the starting lineup will be a massive boost for Mauricio Pochettino, who earlier admitted that the 23-year-old will take part against the Gunners. He said: "I need to decide whether it is starting XI or bench, but it would not be a risk to play him."

"We try to avoid the risk. If he is on the pitch or the bench, it's because we're sure it's not a risk to play him. In football you can't avoid all risks because it's a contact sport, but the doctor said he is available to be selected and that is because there is no risk of injury."

Kane is not the only player who is set to return to the starting lineup against Arsenal. The Guardian claims that Mousa Dembele is also set to start in the north London derby, handing the former Southampton manager a double injury boost for the league clash.

Dembele limped off in Tottenham's Champions League defeat to Bayer Leverkusen and was not set to be available for the tie at the Emirates. Harry Winks was set to make his first Premier League start in the absence of the Belgium international, but the latter's return will see Winks be included among the substitutes.
