Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has given the club’s fans some excellent news, with Harry Kane’s ankle injury not as serious as first perceived.
The England international scored the only goal of the game in the 1-0 Premier League victory over Sunderland at White Hart Lane earlier this month, before being stretchered off the pitch after a challenge.
Good news Tottenham fans…
Harry Kane may not be out for as long as first feared.

Kane was initially expected to be out of action for up to two months, with the North London club sweating over their attacking talisman’s health.
However, Pochettino has given the Spurs fans something to celebrate, with news that last season’s Premier League top goalscorer will not be on the sidelines for as long as initially believed.
“Just half an hour ago, we received the information about the scan and it’s much, much better than we expected and maybe we can reduce the time,” The Guardian quote the Argentine as saying.
“We are happy. The scan was very positive and we are very happy. But still we cannot give how long it will be to recover.
“But it is sure we are happy because this scan was much better. It’s difficult to say one, two, three weeks. But it’s true that it is much better than we expected, and very, very positive.”
Tottenham beat Premier League newcomers Middlesbrough 2-1 at the Riverside Stadium on Saturday without Kane, with Vincent Janssen leading the line and Son Heung-min scoring both goals.
The Dutch striker will surely get the nod to start again as the North London side face CSKA Moscow in the Champions League on Tuesday night.
