Spurs' chances of a decent finish in the Premier League suffered a blow as Harry Kane was forced off with an ankle injury at half-time of their clash with Liverpool last night.
The England captain received treatment twice during the first-half and his movement was clearly restricted as he played on until the break.
On the injury, Jose Mourinho said:
“It’s two ankles, not one, two. He was coping with one, he couldn’t cope with both. Clearly, he’s a guy with good spirit, good sacrifice, so for Harry to say, ‘no chance’ for the second half, we know that it’s not a simple one.”
Same problem, just a different season:
Kane has spent considerable time on the sidelines with a number of serious ankle injuries in recent seasons.
The striker was ruled out for two significant spells in the second half of the 2018-19 season, missing seven games when he damaged ligaments in his left ankle in January 2019 and then nine more matches with a lateral ligament injury sustained in April.
In 2017-18, he missed a month with a similar injury to the right ankle, and endured separate absences of six and four weeks during the 2016-17 campaign.
