Mauricio Pochettino has said there is a small possibility Harry Kane could play again before the end of the season despite his ankle injury.

Earlier this week, Tottenham confirmed Kane sustained “significant” ligament damage to his left ankle after a tangle with Fabian Delph against Manchester City on Tuesday night.

Kane is likely to miss the entirety of the Premier League run-in but the striker will be desperate to return for the Champions League if Spurs make it and the UEFA Nations League finals with England.

Spurs say they are assessing Kane day by day in a bid to get him back on the pitch as soon as possible, and Pochettino was asked if the 25-year-old could feature again this term in a press conference on Friday.

“We’ll see,” Pochettino said. “Because there are still five weeks [of the season remaining], we need to assess. It’s going to be difficult for sure. It’s going to be tough.

“He needs to see the specialist this week. We are going to do everything to recover him as soon as possible. But it’s true that it’s only five weeks of the competition (Premier League) until the end.”

Meanwhile, Dele Alli could play a part against Huddersfield Town this weekend despite fracturing his hand against Manchester City.

The 23-year-old will be assessed ahead of Saturday’s game. If he is unavailable, Tottenham will be heavily relying on Son Heung-min to provide the majority of the goal threat.
