Kane injury fears heightened as Tottenham star drinks after two-goal turn against Everton

The England international had to come out in the dying moments of the 2-2 draw at Goodison Park

Tottenham star Harry Kane limped off the field at the end of the game after scoring two goals against Everton on Friday night.

Kane scored twice in a 2-2 draw at Goodison Park, with Gylfi Sigurdsson also scoring a pair for the Toffees.

As well as bemoaning more points lost in his team’s top four, Jose Mourinho was left sweating over the fitness of a valuable asset after Kane was forced to retire in downtime.

What happened?

Everton got a corner kick in the 91st minute as they pressed for the game-winning goal, and Tottenham first heaved a sigh of relief after clearing the ball, only for Kane to collapse to the ground in obvious discomfort.

The England international appeared to roll his ankle after falling out with Richarlison and Toby Alderweireld, with Dele Alli brought in to his place during the closing seconds of the game.

What was said?

Mourinho hopes Kane won’t be away for long, as he said Sky Sports after the final whistle: “I think it’s too early, let me be optimistic and believe it’s nothing serious.

“He felt something but let me be optimistic and believe he has time to recover. Obviously he is a very important player for us but I cannot speculate.”

Talk to BBC Match of the Day, Mourinho added: “For him, it’s not because it’s nothing, it’s something.

“The next game is Wednesday, the other Sunday, let’s see and be positive.

“We all felt the same fears of something preventing him from playing on Wednesday and especially Sunday, but we’ll see.”

Spurs defender Eric Dier added: “It’s always worrying to see him limp because he doesn’t fall easily, he takes a lot of hits and gets along. But it’s early to see how bad it is. bad.”

How many games could Kane miss?

Depending on the severity of the issue, Kane could be in doubt for Spurs’ next Premier League home game against Southampton on Wednesday.

Fans are hoping their club captain can regain his fitness in time for the Carabao Cup final four days later, which will see Mourinho’s men face Manchester City at Wembley.

Should Kane’s injury prove to be serious, the England captain would also risk missing out on Euro 2020 matches when the tournament kicks off in June.

Kane saves Spurs against Everton

Kane produced another stellar performance to bail out Tottenham at Everton, who have dominated the game for long stretches and shown the utmost urgency to win.

The 27-year-old opened the scoring with a scoring finish in the 27th minute, only for Sigurdsson to equalize from the penalty spot four minutes later.

Sigurdsson then put the hosts in the lead just past the hour, completing a superb team move, but Kane struck again less than 10 minutes later as he fired a fierce volley into the top corner after a confusion in the defense of Everton.
