Pochettino pleased to see Tottenham rest calls justified in win over Huddersfield

Pochettino pleased to see Tottenham rest calls justified in win over Huddersfield

Kane suffered his fifth ankle ligament injury since September 2016 in a challenge with Fabian Delph during Spurs' 1-0 Champions League win over Manchester City on Tuesday, and his second in three months.

Mauricio Pochettino has said he does not expect Harry Kane to feature again for Tottenham this season unless they reach the Champions League final.

With Harry Kane definitely ruled out of the City game, Tottenham would be left short in attack if Alli was not able to feature against City. The timing of his recovery is still unknown.

Davies, who has operated on Spurs, Arsenal and Chelsea players in the past, says Kane's quick recovery rates have not made him more susceptible, neither has a full on schedule which has barely seen him get any rest over the past few summers.

For Tottenham to recreate their White Hart Lane fortress, they need Son Heung-min and Christian Eriksen to shine in the absence of Kane and Alli. "We are going to do everything to recover him as soon as possible".

"We feel so disappointed and it was hard to accept the situation", he added.

"I practise all the time and I'm so happy today because I did very well, good passes, good finishes and if we play like this as a team we can win a lot of things. We'll see what happens in the Champions League but it's only five weeks we have to recover".




The injury is the latest in a line of ankle problems for Kane, and Spurs boss Pochettino admits it will be "difficult" for the 25-year-old to play again this season.

'We need to assess him every day but [we need] to have proper answers to see when he possibly can start training with the team but today it is impossible to give a date.

"This lad has been a bit-part player for Spurs since his arrival fro nbm PSG two seasons ago but he seems to make a significant impact on the game whenever he plays", Crooks wrote in his column for the BBC.

"We still need to assess and we are optimistic, but there is a percentage of doubt". It is so painful.

"I'm more optimistic about him being available for Manchester City in the second leg".

"Tomorrow is not a game to rest players but we have a lot of players who played 90 minutes (against City) who maybe aren't in condition to play for different reasons".

Eric Dier (hip), Erik Lamela and Serge Aurier (both hamstring) are still out.
