Tottenham have handed fans a timely boost as they confirmed that Harry Kane’s latest ligament damage is not as severe as the injury kept him sidelined for 10 days earlier this season.

The English striker was injured early on during Spurs’ 6-0 FA Cup win over Millwall on Sunday as supporters feared the worst after losing the striker for six long weeks earlier this season to a similar injury.

But despite initially stating that Kane will face another spell on the touchline after hurting his right ankle, Spurs have now confirmed the striker is unlikely to miss as much football as he did in the past.

Spurs tweeted: “We can confirm that @HKane sustained ligament damage to his right ankle during Sunday’s FA Cup win against Millwall.

“The injury is similar to the one suffered by the forward against Sunderland in Sept last year, however, it is not considered to be as severe.

“Harry will continue to be assessed by our medical staff while he undergoes his rehabilitation at our Training Centre.”

Tottenham will be up against Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-final on April 22, Arsenal at home in the Premier League eight days later, and Manchester United – for what might become the final fixture at White Hart Lane – on May 13.

However, Kane hopes to play in at least some of those matches. The 23-year-old will be sidelined for Sunday’s home fixture against Southampton and England’s fixtures against Germany and Lithuania later in the month, while the league matches against Burnley, Swansea, Watford and Bournemouth may all come too soon.
