Kane may have to consider ankle surgery - leading surgeon

Son Heung-min Tottenham 2018-19

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli is a big doubt for their Premier League game at home to relegated Huddersfield Town on Saturday after breaking his hand but should be available to face Manchester City in the Champions League next week.

Tottenham said yesterday that "we can confirm that Harry Kane has sustained a significant lateral ligament injury to his left ankle" but did not offer a timeline for his return.

Now, Spurs are understandably anxious that it could well rule him out of Wednesday night's second leg against Manchester City.

When asked whether he believed Kane could return this season, Pochettino said: "We'll see, there is five weeks, it is going to be hard".

The ligament damage means the striker will not only miss the rest of Tottenham's Premier League season but will not lead England at June's UEFA Nations League final in Portugal, which will be a huge blow to Gareth Southgate.

Kane rolled his left ankle in the second half of the quarterfinal first leg after a hefty tackle on City defender Fabian Delph and left the field immediately.

After the game Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino said he was "so happy" for the 26-year-old Brazil winger and his family.

"I practise all the time and I'm so happy today because I did very well, good passes, good finishes and if we play like this as a team we can win a lot of things".

Huddersfield were so limited in all areas, that Tottenham's make-shift line-up were able to play their way into rhythm.

"He feels sad and disappointed like everyone at the club".

"We need to assess him every day, but we need to have proper answers to see when he can possibly start training with the team".

'You really can. You're not holding him back, you're not dropping him on Wednesday, you're saying to him, I've got a specialised situation where with 20 minutes to go I might need to unleash you and I don't know but he looks like the sort of guy who would buy into that'.

Meanwhile the likes of Serge Aurier (hamstring), Eric Dier (hip flexor) and Erik Lamela (hamstring) are out of the Huddersfield fixture.
