Tottenham boss provides injury update on Dele Alli and Harry Winks

Harry Kane provides England and Tottenham with major injury blow

"Following assessment over the past two days, we can confirm that Harry Kane has sustained a significant lateral ligament injury to his left ankle following a challenge in our Champions League quarterfinal, first leg win against Manchester City".

The 25-year-old suffered a similar injury against Manchester United in January and was on the sidelines for around five weeks so Pochettino hasn't given up hope of Kane being able to play in a potential Champions League final on June 1st, should Tottenham make it that far.

Dele Alli, right, broke his hand in two places in the Champions League tie with Manchester City. The timing of his recovery is still unknown.

Pochettino is more optimistic over Alli and while he has not yet ruled the midfielder out of contention for Saturday's home game against Huddersfield Town, it is more likely he returns in time for the second leg against City.

City's need for a goal on Wednesday could also see them push forward and risk being exposed by Son and Moura's pace.

"For some of us, they will be the last Premier League games of our lives so we have to try to enjoy it a little bit as well".

"We will see because he is doing some training sessions with the protection and he needs to feel comfortable", Pochettino said.




"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". "I'm happy first for my team".

Victor Wanyama is another who may have to step up in Alli or Winks' absence, and after his excellently taken opener against Huddersfield, he said: "If we're focused and we give everything then I don't think anyone can beat us".

"Football moves so quick and after the game when Harry got injured everyone believed Sonny was going to step up and is going to be the man, but we have seen today Lucas got a hat-trick and it was an unbelievable afternoon for him", Pochettino said. "We are going to do everything to recover him as soon as possible but there is only five weeks of the season to recover". It is so painful.

"I'm not too optimistic".

"He is a player who we need to assess tomorrow and after tomorrow we will take a decision".

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