It was a night of highs and lows for Tottenham Hotspur as they welcomed Manchester City to their new stadium in the Champions League on Tuesday.
The highs included an early penalty save from Hugo Lloris, and a late winning goal from Heung Min Son, but the biggest low was most certainly Harry Kane’s nasty injury.
After heading into a late challenge, Kane ended up hurting himself by trapping his ankle between Delph’s boot and the turf, twisting it in the process.
Tottenham fans will be well aware of Kane’s past ankle ligament problems, and would have feared the worst as they saw him immediately hop down the tunnel.
Kane later left the stadium in a protective boot, and could now be out for the rest of the Premier League season.
However, former Premier League and England manager Sam Allardyce claims that Spurs can take comfort in the fact they coped excellently without him earlier in the year.
He said (talkSPORT): “It is a blow for them, but they coped last time. They didn’t lose a game last time Kane was out. It’s a big loss for them but they can take some comfort from the last time Harry was out for five or six games.
“That man Son seems to come up and play even better when Harry’s not there. His goal yesterday was exceptionally good.”
