Tottenham Kane suffers ankle ligament damage, back in training early March

The ankle injury suffered by Harry Kane in Tottenham's defeat to Manchester United on Sunday will see the striker out of action until early March, according to the club.

Kane has hit 14 Premier League goals this season and his absence will be a further blow to Tottenham's slim title hopes after their defeat to Manchester United left them nine points behind leaders Liverpool.

The club's talismanic striker could miss up to 12 matches, including a potential Carabao Cup final, both legs... "He will continue to be monitored by our medical staff as he commences rehabilitation and is expected to return to training in early March".

The 25-year-old is no stranger to ankle problems having endured time on the sidelines in each of the last three years, missing seven weeks in the autumn of 2016, after suffering injuries on the joint.

Kane's 14 goals in Premier League action are now tied for most scored this season within England's top flight.

If Kane were to be held out for a significant period of time, he could miss several key fixtures for Tottenham, which is now third in the Premier League standings.

Now he will miss the second leg at Chelsea next week, as well as the FA Cup fourth-round trip to Crystal Palace and at least six crucial league games. Before the first week of March is over, Spurs also play rival Arsenal and have the return leg against Dortmund.

With Son Heung-Min now away at the Asian Cup, and the final of that competition taking place on February 1, the injury has come at a bad time for Spurs.

Overall, Kane has 20 goals in 31 appearances in all competitions for Spurs this season.
