Kane unlikely to return this season, admits Pochettino

Tottenham Hotspur v Huddersfield Town – Premier League – Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

It will be "difficult" for striker Harry Kane to play again this season after injuring his ankle against Manchester City on Tuesday, Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino says.

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. The timing of his recovery is still unknown.

Although Kane has quick powers of recovery, returning ahead of schedule on a number of occasions, Pochettino has said it will be tough for him to play again this season.

All eyes were on Fernando Llorente and Lucas to see if they could fill the gap left by Kane and Son up front.

"Of course, him and us will try to do everything to recover him as soon as possible".

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

Jon Stankovic had a chance to get Huddersfield back in it when he stabbed wide from a corner in a rare attack, but the traffic remained largely one way and Llorente passed up two good chances to extend the lead, the second a glancing header which went just wide. It was very emotional for him and I am so happy for him and his family.

With no Harry Kane or Dele Alli, most eyes were on Heung-min Son, but he was only on the bench and in his absence Moura stepped up.

"It's true that now we can have an opinion that it was a challenge with not too much need for it", added Pochettino. We are going to do everything to recover him as soon as possible but there is only five weeks of the season to recover.

There was no further addition to the scoreline in the first period, but there so almost was two minutes after the break when Juan Foyth clipped a ball in to Llorente in the area, who superbly controlled and shot on the turn but his effort smacked against the crossbar.

"We still need to assess and we are optimistic, but there is a percentage of doubt". Yesterday he saw the specialist.

"I'm not optimistic about tomorrow".

"So, to me, one thing simply does not mean that somehow we're gonna make an argument that Spurs are better off with Harry Kane, 'cos that would be insane".

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