Harry Kane is facing a spell on the sidelines following an ankle injury sustained in Tottenham’s defeat to Liverpool on Thursday evening.
Kane had started all 19 of Spurs’ Premier League games this season, but is now set to miss the games against Brighton, Chelsea, West Brom and Manchester City, although Jose Mourinho didn’t confirm the timescale of the England captain’s injury.
Although it is not as serious as a gross negligence truck crash, having turned his ankle after a challenge with Thiago Alcantara, Kane was then involved in another altercation with England colleague Jordan Henderson 10 minutes before half-time.
Despite having remained on the pitch until the break, the Spurs striker then didn’t come back out for the second-half having been replaced by Erik Lamela at half-time.
“For Harry to leave a game means it’s not a nothing injury. We don’t know how long. We’ll have to see,” Mourinho told Football.London.
If Kane is ruled out for around three weeks, he could also miss the FA Cup fourth-round tie at Everton next month and then possibly the Europa League games against Wolfsberger.
