Interim manager Ryan Mason hopes Tottenham Hotspur's talismanic striker Harry Kane will have recovered in time from an ankle injury to face Manchester City in Sunday's League Cup final.

Kane missed Spurs' come-from-behind 2-1 victory over Southampton on Wednesday after picking up an injury in last week's 2-2 draw with Everton -- Jose Mourinho's last game before his dismissal.

Mason, at 29 the youngest ever Premier League manager, has been put in charge until the end of the season and stands one win away from being the unlikeliest of men to end Tottenham's trophy drought.

Juande Ramos was the last Spurs manager to deliver silverware in the 2008 League Cup.

"With Harry it is just about taking it each day as it comes," said Mason after the victory over Southampton.

"We know he is doing absolutely everything he can to be back out on the football pitch.
