Tottenham will be desperate for good news after star man Harry Kane limped off with yet another ankle problem after scoring twice in the 2-2 draw at Everton. Kane was seen shaking his head as he made his way back to the changing rooms after being forced to leave the field in stoppage time with the injury.
Kane appeared to get his ankle trapped under Richarlison following a set piece and the impact of the collision saw him roll his ankle.
The England captain has had plenty of misfortune with his ankles in recent seasons, having suffered ligament damage on two separate occasions.
He also rolled his ankle earlier this season in the 3-1 defeat to Liverpool but made a miraculous recovery, returning for Tottenham’s Premier League clash with West Brom two games later.
Now Tottenham need another miracle when discovering the extent of the damage, with Kane expected to be assessed tomorrow.
They have another Premier League game next week against Southampton before undoubtedly their biggest game of the season.
Spurs face Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final later month and Jose Mourinho’s job is on the line.
Should he fail to win his first trophy as Tottenham boss, he could be facing the sack at the end of the season.
Tottenham lost further ground in the race for the top-four tonight after sharing the points at Goodison Park.
They were ahead in the first half through Kane before former Tottenham midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson struck twice.
Kane then responded with his second and nearly had a hat-trick when his header clipped the woodwork.
But the game ended on a sour note for the visitors as Kane hobbled away, something that is now a major worry for Tottenham.
Gareth Southgate will also be concerned about his skipper as he was watching on from the stands at Goodison Park.
Mourinho though, remains optimistic that Kane will be fit for the final and refused to be drawn into the negativity surrounding the injury.
“It is too early to say something. For him to leave the pitch with a few minutes to go is obviously because he felt something. Let me be optimistic and believe that he has time to recover. Let’s see,” he told Sky Sports.
“Let me be optimistic and believe it’s nothing serious. It’s obvious he’s a very important player for us. I cannot say much or speculate.
“Both [Kane’s goals] were from crosses but it was great finishing. It’s the kind of player that when you see the first touch and the control, we are used to seeing it in training and we know it is fantastic finishing. Two beautiful goals but not a surprise for the ones who see him do it every day in training.”
