According to a report in The Sun, Jose Mourinho is hoping to have Harry Kane back fit for the clash against West Ham United on February 20.
Kane had to come off at half-time during Tottenham’s 3-1 defeat to Liverpool on Thursday, with Mourinho confirming after the game that the striker had injured both of his ankles.
The Telegraph reported yesterday that the England captain is hopeful that the injury is not as serious as the previous ankle problems he suffered in 2016 and 2019 since he is not in as much pain as he was on those occasions.
However, The Mirror claimed that the 27-year-old could be out of action for two months and faces a race against time to be fit for England’s World Cup qualifiers in March.
The Sun have now said that Mourinho is keeping his fingers crossed that the striker has not suffered any bone or ligament damage.
While Kane is yet to have a scan, it is said that Tottenham are hoping that he is ready to return in three weeks.

The fact that Kane soldiered on and completed the first-half would suggest that he has not damaged any ligaments or bones. Hopefully, it is not as serious as the previous ankle problems that he has suffered.
