According to a report from The Daily Mirror, Harry Kane’s ankle injury could put him out of action for the next two months.
Kane had to be withdrawn at half-time against Liverpool, with Jose Mourinho later confirming that the striker had issues in both of his ankles.
The Telegraph reported yesterday that Tottenham are waiting for the swelling in Kane’s ankles to subside so that the England captain can undergo a scan.
The report claimed that the injury is not thought to be as serious as the previous ankle injuries Kane suffered in 2016 and 2019, as he is far less pain than he was during those occasions.
However, it was suggested that the injury is expected to put the 27-year-old out of action for at least two weeks.
The Mirror have now painted a much grimmer picture, claiming that Kane could be out of action for a much longer period of time. They say that the striker could face a race against time to be fit for England’s World Cup qualifiers in March.

One cannot help but wonder if the injury would have been far less serious had Kane come off when he initially suffered the injury midway into the first half, instead of soldering on and also injuring his other ankle.
However, the fact that he was able to complete the first-half might suggest that the injuries to his ankles are not as bad as the ones he previously suffered.
