Harry Kane was substituted early from Tottenham’s clash with AFC Bournemouth with an injury to the same ankle that kept him out for a lengthy period last season.
The Englishman appeared to turn his ankle in a challenge with Bournemouth goalkeeper Asmir Begovic as he put the ball in the net on 34 minutes, although Kane’s effort was disallowed for offside before his side went on to claim a 4-1 win at the Vitality Stadium.
He was replaced by Erik Lamela after receiving treatment and Kane was spotted hobbling around the touchline to the changing rooms accopanied by a Spurs physio.
Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino confirmed to Sky Sports report Greg Whelan at half-time that Kane’s injury was:
“In his right ankle, possibly ligaments, similar to the injury sustained against Sunderland early last season”.
The Argentinian boss also admitted after the match that he was “concerned” by the Englishman’s injury but added:
“Until tomorrow and the scan we cannot say anything more.
“Of course I worry about him, his ankle, I hope it’s not a massive issue – for him and the team – and as soon as possible he can be available.”
Kane, who has scored 24 Premier League goals this season with two assists, spent close nearly two months on the sidelines between September and November 2016 with an injury to his right ankle before spending another two-and-a-half-week period out between March and April 2017.
