Tottenham are worried they could be without top scorer Harry Kane for up to two months due to ankle ligament damage.
The England international failed to finish Sunday’s game against Sunderland due to the injury and was taken down the tunnel at White Hart Lane on a stretcher.
Spurs sent the 23-year-old for further medical examinations on Monday and were expected to learn the full extent of the problem then, although no official confirmation has been given yet.
Speculation has now suggested Tottenham could have to do without Kane for up to two moths due to a grade two ankle ligament injury.
Should those reports be correct then it would rule last season’s top scorer out of some huge Premier League fixtures against Leicester, Manchester City and Arsenal, as well as two big Champions League matches with CSKA Moscow and Bayer Leverkusen.
