Tottenham confirmed yesterday that Harry Kane will be out until March after sustaining an ankle injury against Manchester United. Scans showed that the England captain had damaged ligaments in his left ankle, and an injury of this kind usually takes two months to heal.
However, this is the fourth time in three seasons that Kane is suffering ligament damage in his ankle and the striker has a history of returning from these injuries sooner than expected.
Standard Sport report today that Kane is confident of returning much quicker than the return date the club has forecasted. The report claims that the striker is targeting a return to action before the Carabao Cup Final on February 24, should Spurs make it through.
It is claimed that the 25-year-old is very confident of being fully fit before the North London Derby in the first week of March at the very least. Kane took to social media to reassure fans that he will be working as hard as he can to return from the injury as quickly as he can.
Injuries are part of the game but no-one will be working harder to get back fit. Thanks for the messages. pic.twitter.com/cUeq4zFrlk

Spurs fans will be hoping history repeats itself once again and that the team doesn’t have to cope with the absence of Kane for too long.
