Tottenham's Kane has 'significant' ankle injury; Alli fractures hand

Winks starred in Tottenham's midweek Champions League win over Manchester City, playing an important role in dominating the midfield battle against Pep Guardiola's men.

Now, Spurs are understandably anxious that it could well rule him out of Wednesday night's second leg against Manchester City.

But boss Mauricio Pochettino may decide to shuffle his pack somewhat with the return game against City to come on Wednesday.

Spurs have yet to reveal a timeframe for Kane's absence, but he is certain to miss their league game against bottom-placed Huddersfield Town on Saturday in the Premier League.

Meanwhile, Huddersfield defender Chris Lowe, who joined on a free transfer in 2016 and helped them earn promotion, said confirmation of relegation had done little to change the mood around the club given they had known it was coming for so long.

"He was so upset after the game, it was a hard moment for him", Pochettino said.

The Champions League presents Tottenham with their final opportunity to win a piece of silverware this season, which could well prove to be vital in keeping hold of their star players in the summer. We have a lot of players who played ninety minutes who are not in a condition to play tomorrow.

Pochettino did not allude as to whether surgery would be needed but did say Spurs have plans in place for Kane's recovery.

"We have a strong squad, rather than rest tomorrow we want to provide the team good energy and fresh legs to be sure we can approach the game in the best condition and be sure we are going to get the three points".

"Nobody should feel that we don't care about what happened in the last few months".

"It's true that now we can have an opinion that it was a challenge with not too much need for it", added Pochettino.
