Jose Mourinho provides Harry Kane injury update

Jose Mourinho has revealed Harry Kane's injury is not as bad as earlier thought, and he could be back in action sooner than expected. 

The England international was forced off at half-time during Tottenham's 3-1 loss to Liverpool last week and was initially expected to be out for weeks. 

According to Jose Mourinho though, Kane is confident he will be back in action soon, which should be a huge boost for Spurs. 

The team suffered a shock 1-0 defeat against Brighton on Sunday evening and were second best for long periods. 

“The news is pretty good news,” Mourinho told the club's official website. “After Liverpool, no idea. Then the next day, we were thinking about three weeks, something like that.

"I don’t want to be super-optimistic, but Harry is optimistic, he has the experience of some injuries in his ankles, and in Harry’s mind, it’s a couple of weeks, so let’s see if he’s right.”

Kane has been the star man for Spurs this season, managing 12 Premier League goals and 11 assists in the opening 19 fixtures. 

Up until the time of his injury, Kane was in contention for the Golden Boot award but has now fallen behind Mohamed Salah, who has notched 15 so far.
