Tottenham delay Harry Kane ankle scan as club wants to have a better understanding of the injury

Harry Kane’s ankle injury marred Tottenham Hotspur’s 4-1 victory over Bournemouth on Sunday.

The 24-year-old was replaced midway through the first half with Spurs trailing 1-0 but in his absence, Dele Alli, Son Hueng-min and Serge Aurier delivered the goods as our club came from behind to win 4-1.

Now the Daily Mail reports that Spurs have delayed a scan on Kane’s injured ankle in the hope of getting a crystal clear picture of the extent of damage once the swelling reduces.

The Spurs striker limped out of Sunday’s game in agony after twisting his right ankle and the Daily Mail claim he is expected to miss the FA Cup quarter-final at Swansea on Saturday and also England’s friendlies against Holland and Italy.

Tottenham’s first game after the international break is at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea on April 1. It is surely one of the biggest games of the season in the jostle for the top four.

The injury to Kane is a big blow and following the scans, one will understand the extent of the damage on his right ankle.

But in his absence, Son, who has been in blistering form this season and scored a brace at Bournemouth, could replace the England international up front. Also, if needed, Fernando Llorente could step up.

Son’s 6th and 7th goals in a week prove that Spurs still have plenty of firepower without Kane but after Swansea, we travel to Chelsea where we are without a win since 1990.
