In what will have been a tough call, I’m advised that Harry Kane will feature later on today, however, it wasn’t clear whether this meant to start or simply be on the bench. The key issue here is, one guesses is would Kane be taking part if this was a less than consequential Premier League game, or would the England captain have been advised to sit his next game out and reappraise his ankle after more rest.
Kane’s injury itself wasn’t typical in this instance, despite the 27-year-old having been plagued with ankle niggles over time. Watching the game against Everton, this latest injury was forced by the weight of an Everton player upon Harry Kane’s lower leg, causing Harry to roll his ankle. Kane was able to walk off with a mild limp – which may indicate that this isn’t a hugely serious injury – but by the same token – what was pivotal here was bad the swelling and subsequent bruising became.
Judging by the recently released training pictures, Kane appears to be holding up well.
