Spurs suffer injury blow as Harry Kane out until March

Kane saves Spurs from West Brom as Man United edge Brighton

Tottenham striker Harry Kane will be out until early March after injuring his ankle ligaments during Sunday’s 1-0 defeat to Manchester United at Wembley.

Spurs are currently on third spot in the Premier League table, with Kane’s fire power mostly responsible.

The England captain has been instrumental to the club’s fine run this season having scored 14 goals to currently stand as joint top scorer in the league.

“Following preliminary assessments, we can confirm that @HKane has damaged ligaments in his left ankle, sustained during Sunday’s match,” Spurs tweeted on Tuesday afternoon.

“He will continue to be monitored by our medical staff as he commences rehabilitation and is expected to return to training in early March.”

With 20 goals in all competitions, Kane tops the chart for Tottenham and is likely to miss both legs of their Champions League last-16 tie with Borussia Dortmund.

The 25-year old will also miss Spurs’ Premier League against Arsenal and Chelsea, and the second leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final against Chelsea later this month.

Meanwhile, forward Son Heung-min is currently on international duty with South Korea at the Asia Cup in the United Arab Emirates, and could be unavailable until February depending on how far South Korea progress.

The final of the Asia Cup is on 1st February.
