Medics exploring different ways Spurs star could play with suspected broken hand


It should have gone down as a perfect night for Tottenham Hotspur as they defeated Man City 1-0 at home in the Champions League quarter final first leg on Tuesday night.

The first European match in the new stadium, a clean sheet, a lead to take to the Etihad, another goal for Son, a penalty save for Lloris, and a memorable night for the fans.

Unfortunately, there were a few bitter moments for Spurs throughout the game, none more so than when Harry Kane went down clutching his ankle.

After coming into a challenge late, Kane suffered yet another case of ligament damage and hopped straight down the tunnel, later leaving the ground in a protective boot.

As if things weren’t bad enough, Dele Alli was then forced off with a suspected broken hand, however, the Tottenham medical team will be determined to put in place a temporary fix (Telegraph).

For example, Andros Townsend recently wore a protective splint for his games after suffering a hand injury, and Jamie Vardy wore a plaster cast for a while to protect his broken wrist.

Hopefully, Alli will be given something similar, allowing him to play out the rest of the season.
