Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane suffered yet another injury blow last night when he was forced off the field of play during the 1-0 win against Manchester City.

The 25-year-old was seen leaving the stadium on crutches with a protective boot on his left ankle after picking up the problem during a challenge for the ball with Fabian Delph.

It is the same ankle which he suffered ligament damage to in January which kept him sidelined for almost two months. He also missed a month of last season with a similar problem in his right ankle.

The forward is expected to undergo an MRI scan on the ankle today with fears that he could miss the remainder of Tottenham’s season which would represent a signficant blow to their top four hopes along with the chances of progressing to the Champions League semi final.

Kane took to Twitter to post a photo of himself being helped from the touchline by the Spurs medical staff along with a caption, promising to come back stronger than ever.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Having these constant ankle injuries happening to our talisman is very concerning.
    I know that once it first happens, and you turn an ankle, it’s never quite the same again.
    There is always a weakness there, despite the best of treatment.
    I cannot think of many forwards at the highest level who’ve had to endure these
    types of constant injuries, and that makes it even more concerning.
    The recurring hamstring problem badly affected Michael Owen’s weaponry of speed
    and control on the pitch, and now we’ve got our own top England forward
    Harry is so fit and rarely gets any other type of injury, but in the long term it’s
    incredibly worrying for him, the club and us fans.
    I even wonder if his best times as a striker was before his first ankle injury.
    He definitely plays deeper now and I wonder if it’s because he doesn’t trust
    his ankles to stand up to the constant battering, tackles, leaps, twists and turns in the penalty area.
    I remember Jimmy Greaves in the 60s. Smoked fags at half time, did probably
    10% of the fitness regime Harry does, and barely got injured.
    Harry is just desperately unlucky.
