Harry Kane fears he could be out for at least four weeks as the striker and Tottenham Hotspur wait for the swelling on his injured ankle to go down.
Tottenham have been unable to scan Kane’s ankle due to the swelling caused by the injury he suffered at the end of the Premier League defeat to Manchester United on Sunday.
Until he undergoes a scan and finds out the severity of the injury, Spurs will not be able to put a timescale on Kane’s absence or even make a prediction as to when he might return.
But the swelling, and the fact he has suffered ankle issues in the past, have given Kane the impression that he will be missing for a minimum of four weeks and potentially longer.
That would rule Kane out of the second leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final tie against Chelsea next Thursday night and would be a huge blow to Tottenham with Heung-Min Son now away, possibly until the end of the month, at the Asia Cup with South Korea.
