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having remained on the pitch until the break, the Spurs striker then didn’t come back out for the second-half having been replaced by Erik Lamela at half-time.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.



  1. Daniel levy will be having nightmares. He needs spurs to win as much as possible to increase the money in place of the revenue lost from ticket and match day money. What to do.

  2. What to do spursnut d?
    Basically give up.
    Wasn’t Vinicius brought in with the purpose of replacing an injured or rested Kane?
    Then why not play him?And this after a 1st half hat trick all be it against Marine in his previous appearance.
    Basically Jose is a clown of a coach.

    • I watched vini last week and he was poor. The problem for him is he only plays games that either don’t matter or we are much stronger than the other team. It is hard to judge how decent he is. Our real problem is in two areas which Jose has stated. The centre of the defence and that third player in the middle. Although I reckon we need two new centre halfs and that third player in the middle of the park. However I fear if things don’t improve we might face a complete rebuild with son, Kane and ndomble all looking to move on.
