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

The visitors were sitting back and playing deep in the early stages and it could have become a hard game for us had it gone on too long without scoring, so Victor Wanyama's opening goal was a big moment in the match.

The return game is scheduled for April 17 in Manchester.

While the Argentine coach was not arguing that Son has had a better season than Raheem Sterling or Virgil van Dijk, he does believe he could be among the Player of the Year nominations.

"We need to assess him this afternoon and I am not too optimistic", the manager said. "He has had to travel a lot with South Korea, but after November he has been fantastic".

Lucas Moura scored a brilliant hat-trick as Tottenham cruised past relegated Huddersfield and moved above Chelsea into third in the Premier League.

Kane had previously missed six weeks of action after injuring the same ankle during a January 15 Premier League match against Manchester United.

"It all depends on the time and we will see if in time he arrives in a situation where he is comfortable to play".

The fan ran onto the field late in Spurs' 1-0 victory on Tuesday and was confronted by Man City left-back Fabian Delph before being removed by stewards. "It's not about resting players for Manchester City".

The England captain will find out the full extent of his ankle ligament problem next week when he visits a specialist but he looks set to miss the rest of the season, starting with Saturday's lunchtime visit of Huddersfield. "Mentally it's the hardest period of my footballing career. So I'm in a way disappointed, because the result doesn't reflect the way we played today, at all".

"It means you are not just relying on scar tissue regaining strength so it would improve his chances of coming back".

"You always think about the reasons why we are where we are, all that kind of stuff".
