When Harry Kane damaged his ankle ligaments against Sunderland in September last year he was absent for the next seven weeks of action, missing ten games.

Tottenham’s talisman returned for the North London derby in early November and scored an equaliser from the penalty spot in a 1-1 draw.

And it looks like Kane might make yet another timely return. The club claims his fresh ankle injury is less severe than last time, meaning he should miss less than seven weeks. And who do Spurs face in seven weeks? That’s right — Arsenal.

Unfortunately Kane will almost certainly miss the FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea at Wembley, which takes place in just under five weeks.

If Tottenham get through that, they will hope Kane returns for the business end of the season with Mauricio Pochettino’s side fighting for a trophy and a top four finish.

For now, Spurs will put their faith in Heung-Min Son’s goalscoring ability while Vincent Janssen remains in reserve.
