Harry Kane Set For At least A Month On The Sidelines

Tottenham are sweating over the duration of Harry Kane’s injury and will wait for the swelling around the English Captain’s injured ankle to subside before scanning the joint to know the true damage.

The striker hobbled away from Wembley on Sunday after hurting an ankle towards the end of the 1-0 defeat by Manchester United. 

The area is too swollen for Spurs to examine properly and ascertain the extent of the damage. But, while the club are understandably reluctant to put a timescale on his anticipated absence, Kane is concerned he might be out of action for a minimum of four weeks meaning he’d automatically won’t be ready for the first leg of the Champions League last-16 tie with Borussia Dortmund next month.

These are worrying times for the Lilywhites, whose only other recognised striker is Fernando Llorente, with Son Heung-min’s departure to play for South Korea in the Asian Cup, where his involvement could extend until the end of January.
