World Cup fears for KO’d Kane

In a ma­jor blow for club as well as coun­try, Kane’s an­tic­i­pated lay-off would see him ruled out un­til the end of April and have just a hand­ful of games left at the end of the sea­son to try and re­gain match fit­ness ahead of Eng­land’s World Cup cam­paign in Rus­sia.

As it stands, for Spurs Kane would miss their FA Cup quar­ter-fi­nal at Swansea on Satur­day, a semi-fi­nal if they progress and four league fix­tures af­ter the in­ter­na­tional break – a po­ten­tial top-four de­cider against Chelsea and fur­ther clashes against Stoke, Manch­ester City and Brighton.

Spurs star­let Harry Winks has been left sweat­ing on his World Cup place. He has been strug­gling for game-time un­der Mauri­cio Po­chet­tino be­cause of a per­sis­tent an­kle in­jury.

Winks faces an anx­ious wait to see if he gets called up for Eng­land’s friendlies with Hol­land and Italy when Gareth South­gate names his squad to­mor­row.

LOW POINT Po­chet­tino must cope with­out Kane
