Tottenham's Kane has 'significant' ankle injury; Alli fractures hand

Asked if Kane, who has a history of ankle problems, would play again this term, he replied: "There's only four weeks until the end of the season".

After the 1-0 win, which puts them in pole position to reach the Champions League semi-finals for the first time ever, coach Mauricio Pochettino said Kane could be out for the rest of the campaign.

Lucas Moura scored a hat trick as Tottenham stayed on course for a top-four finish in the Premier League by beating Huddersfield 4-0 on Saturday.

They trail third-placed Chelsea by two points, with a game in hand, and lead fellow London rivals Arsenal by one point.

Pochettino's men also travel to the Etihad Stadium for the second leg of their Champions League tie on April 17 and it looks doubtful that Kane will be able to play any part. We feel so disappointed and it was hard to accept the situation.

After his Players Championship win he reflected on his future, saying "I've started the second phase of my career". His early season win in the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship boosted him to his current level.

"We need to assess him every day, but we need to have proper answers to see when he can possibly start training with the team". It is so painful, yesterday he saw specialist and today we see how he will deal with the situation.

"But I don't believe it will be a big problem."I think we are going to help and, with experience, we can make it different in the future and hope it will be the last time he gets an injury with his ankle". I'm more optimistic about him being available for Manchester City in the second leg", he said.

Kane has an ankle injury suffered in midweek against Manchester City, the same game where Alli broke his hand in two places.

"The England midfielder will now be assessed to determine his availability for this weekend's fixture against Huddersfield Town".

Erik Lamela and Serge Aurier (both hamstring) remain sidelined.
