In a major setback, Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed injuries to Dele Alli and Harry Kane.
Kane has already been ruled out for the rest of the season following his mistimed tackle on Manchester City’s Fabian Delph during the Champions League quarter final. The Spurs captain needed treatment on the pitch and later had to be substituted denting severe damage to their Premier League top four hopes.
The English international had already missed a large portion of the ongoing season following a similar ligament injury back in January and it seems Mauricio Pochettino has another tough task to cut out.
Alli also had an injury in his left hand and later it was confirmed the midfielder fractured his hand.
An official Spurs statement read: “Following assessment over the past two days, we can confirm that Harry Kane has sustained a significant lateral ligament injury to his left ankle following a challenge in our Champions League quarter-final, first-leg win against Manchester City.
“Investigations are ongoing and he will continue to be assessed by our medical staff over the coming week.”
“We can also confirm that examinations have revealed that Dele Alli fractured his left hand during Tuesday’s fixture.
“The England midfielder will now be assessed to determine his availability for this weekend’s fixture against Huddersfield Town.”
