Kane yet to undergo scan

Harry Kane has yet to have a scan on his injured ankle, Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has revealed.

Kane suffered ankle ligament damage during Tottenham's 1-0 defeat of Sunderland on Sunday but almost a week on the club do not know the full extent of the injury because of the swelling around the joint.

“We don’t know when he will be back. We need to assess every day. The ankle is still swollen so we need to wait. We will have another scan next week and then we can assess much better. We’ll know how long the recovery will be then," manager Mauricio Pochettino said.

It is thought Kane could be out for up to eight weeks and Pochettino hoping is hopeful that he will be available sooner.

“We need to be positive, we cannot change the past,” Pochettino said.

“Kane got an injury against Sunderland and we need to help him. We need to be positive about his recovery, but he is very positive about his recovery. He’s in a good mood and that’s very important. It’s important to have all the energy focused on being available as soon as possible.”

Kane's absence means Vincent Janssen is set for an extended spell in the team and Pochettino has urged the 22-year-old to grasp the opportunity.

"It’s always a team responsibility. He needs to feel free to play, to help the team, to show his real skill. He needs only to play football," the manager added.

"Yes it’s possible he’ll go [on a goalscoring run]. He needs to feel confidence, to feel the net and it was good for him to score his first official goal. Now he has a great opportunity to start for the team.”
