Tottenham have confirmed Harry Kane will be sidelined until March as the striker suffered ankle ligament damage last weekend.

Mauricio Pochettino side suffered a 1-0 defeat at Manchester United on Sunday evening at Wembley Stadium.

Spurs released an official statement via the club’s Twitter account on Tuesday night.

The statement read: “Following preliminary assessments, we can confirm that @HKane has damaged ligaments in his left ankle, sustained during Sunday’s match.”

“He will continue to be monitored by our medical staff as he commences rehabilitation and is expected to return to training in early March.”

Club manager Pochettino revealed that he does worry following his side’s defeat against United and his striker’s injury.

“I think I am worried because we will see what happens with Harry Kane,” the Argentine said.

“I think Moussa is only a small thing but we will see, we need to assess Harry Kane.”

“At the end, I think he suffered a big tackle and twisted his ankle and now we need to assess him over the next few days, hoping it is not a big issue.”

Tottenham, who currently sit second on the Premier League table, are back in action on Sunday afternoon against Fulham at Craven Cottage.
