Spurs realistic regarding injury lay-off of star striker Kane

Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane could be sidelined for some time after injuring his ankle today.

The star striker was able to hobble off the pitch after he re-injured the ankle that saw him out of action earlier in the season.

But Kane was seen with crutches and a protective boot after the match suggesting that perhaps the problem is quite serious.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino said: "He twisted his ankle in the same way as before, it was the same ankle he injured in the game against Sunderland.

"Now we have to wait, we will assess it tomorrow.

"It's difficult. We hope it's not a big issue but it looks a similar situation as his previous injury. We hope it's not a big issue. I'm sure it will be difficult to play against Southampton next weekend.

"Of course I'm sad about Harry's injury but we have to find a solution. When you lose a player like Harry you will miss him.

"Harry is one of the best strikers in England but we can't cry."
