Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris: We can cover Kane absence

Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris says they're strong enough to handle any Harry Kane injury absence.

Kane scored the only goal in yesterday's 1-0 win over Sunderland at White Hart Lane but left the field on a stretcher after appearing to suffer an ankle injury in a challenge with Black Cats defender Papy Djilobodji.

Lloris said: “We have a competitive team and fully confident in every player.

"When one player is missing, it gives an opportunity to another player to bring his skills, energy and quality.

"This is the story of the season and that's why we need all the players involved to be committed to the club because when the manager needs you, you need to respond well.

"We just hope it is not too bad. It is true that if you look at the images, we can be a bit worried but all the medical staff are going to try to bring him back as quick as possible. We need to wait for the diagnostics."
