Latest update on England and Spurs’ striker Harry Kane’s ankle injury

Kane absence makes Tottenham tougher to beat – Siewert

Mauricio Pochettino has said he does not expect Harry Kane to feature again for Tottenham this season unless they reach the Champions League final.

"He's Harry Kane because he has played like this in the past".

Kane suffered his latest injury making a strong tackle on Delph near the halfway line but Pochettino does not believe the striker needs to make changes to the way he plays the game.

Spurs confirmed on Thursday that Kane suffered a "significant lateral ligament injury to his left ankle" during their Champions League victory over Manchester City on Tuesday, with a timeline for his return unknown.

With Heung-Min Son named on the bench to give him a rest, Llorente got the chance to lead the line for Spurs. "I am more optimistic for him to be available for Manchester City in the second leg".

Fourth-placed Tottenham have six league games remaining and are a point ahead of rivals Arsenal as they battle for a top four finish and a place in next season's Champions League.

"There's no pressure for him, there's a pressure for us and the team to try and deliver our best job and win games", Pochettino said in a press conference when asked about extra pressure on Son.

Surgeon Mark Davies, a leading specialist at the London Foot and Ankle Centre, who has operated on Premier League footballers, said going under the knife could help restore the strength of Kane's ligament to what it was before his first injury.

"It was a good performance by everyone and we need to keep it like this".

There was no sign of Harry Winks in the matchday squad for the Premier League clash against Huddersfield and according to the Daily Mirror, it was because Winks picked up a groin problem which forced him to sit out the game.

Spurs will also be without their longer-term injured players defender Serge Aurier and forward Erik Lamela (both hamstring) plus England midfielder Eric Dier (hip) against Huddersfield.
