Tottenham have confirmed Harry Kane will be out until early March with an ankle ligament injury.
Harry Kane suffered the injury in the closing stages of Sunday’s defeat to Manchester United at Wembley.
“Following preliminary assessments, we can confirm that Harry Kane has damaged ligaments in his left ankle, sustained during Sunday’s match,” a short statement from Spurs read.
“He will continue to be monitored by our medical staff as he commences rehabilitation and is expected to return to training in early March.”
Tottenham are already down one forward with Hueng-min Son, Kane’s regular stand-in up front, away on international duty with South Korea at the Asian Cup.
Boss Mauricio Pochettino will not be able to call on Harry Kane for that match, nor for the first leg of Tottenham’s Champions League last-16 tie with Borussia Dortmund on 13 February. The player is also likely to miss the second leg, on 5 March, as well the visit to north London rivals Arsenal three days earlier.
