Spurs ready to deploy secret weapon against Arsenal? Starlet on target again!

Young Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane was on target once again for the development squad and with Sherwood promising the starlet first-team chances, could he impact Tottenham's top four run?

England under-21 striker Harry Kane proved to be the difference in Tottenham's under-21 Premier League match against West Brom bagging a first-half brace to send Spurs on their way to a 5-2 victory.

Spurs first-team coach Tim Sherwood recently assured the striker that he remains part of his plans and will get a role to play this season.

''Harry Kane has done brilliant,'' said Sherwood.

''He's had to be very patient. If I was Harry Kane, I'd be banging my door down every day and saying 'why aren't I getting an opportunity to play' but he's very respectful enough to know we've got world-class strikers.

''He will get his time.''

And after the horror show against Chelsea and the 20-year-old proving once again to be the difference at youth-team level, could his chance come against North London rivals Arsenal?

After the match against Chelsea, a bitterly blunt Sherwood left no excuse for his sides efforts, labeling them as ''gutless'' and told supporters dreaming of fourth place to ''wake up.''

Tottenham are at home to Benfica in the Europa League last-16 knockout stage on Tursday, face-off at home to Arsenal Sunday and then back-out to Benfica for the second-leg a week on Thursday. Leaving them with a pretty gut-wrenching ten days which will require all hands on deck.

For now, the emphasis for Spurs will be on the Europa League and a cup win in that competition would represent a huge achievement by Sherwood and his team. The league match against Arsenal, whilst always an important game, could prove to be the perfect stage to blood Kane into the first eleven and perhaps look at his potential for a starting spot next season.

He may even prove to be the difference going into the last few games of the season.
