Tottenham and England face an anxious wait to find out the full extent of an injury suffered by Harry Kane in Friday night’s Premier League draw at Everton.
The Spurs striker scored twice in the 2-2 draw at Goodison Park, but then left the field late in the game after suffering an ankle problem.
Jose Mourinho admitted afterwards that it was too early to say how serious the issue was, with concerns for the Tottenham boss with a big week ahead for the squad.
As well as a midweek Premier League clash with Southampton, Spurs will also face Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final next Sunday (EFL Cup Winner – City 1/4, Spurs 11/4).
When asked about the England captain’s latest injury, Mourinho stated: “For him to come out it is not because it’s nothing, it’s something.
“We all felt the same fears of something that stops him playing Wednesday (against Southampton) and especially Sunday (League Cup final), but we will see.”
Friday’s draw leaves Spurs five points outside the top-four with six games remaining, meaning Kane’s availability could be even more crucial to Tottenham’s season – 14/1 to finish in the top four.
England head coach Gareth Southgate will also be anxious to find out the extent of the injury, with less than 60 days left until the start of the European Championships.
Kane’s two goals on Friday took him to 21 goals for the season and lifted the 27-year-old (8/11 – Premier League Top Goalscorer) into seventh on the all-time Premier League goalscoring list.
