LONDON (AP):

Tottenham says that striker Harry Kane suffered a “significant” ankle ligament injury during Tuesday’s Champions League win over Manchester City, while the club also confirmed that midfielder Dele Alli fractured his left hand.

Kane limped off during the second half of Tottenham’s 1-0 win over City, and it’s still unclear whether he can play again this season. Tottenham said yesterday that “we can confirm that Harry Kane has sustained a significant lateral ligament injury to his left ankle” but did not offer a timeline for his return.

The club added that “investigations are ongoing, and he will continue to be assessed by our medical staff over the coming week”.

Alli’s injury appears to be less serious, and the club said that the England midfielder would be assessed to determine whether he can play in tomorrow’s game against Huddersfield.
