Tottenham have announced striker Harry Kane suffered ankle ligament damage during the FA Cup quarter-final win against Millwall on Sunday, but have not put a timescale on his recovery.
If Kane can get match fit again within six weeks, the England forward could feature in the FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea on the weekend of April 22, which marks the start of a potentially decisive period in Tottenham’s campaign.
A post on the Premier League club’s official Twitter feed read: “We can confirm that @HKane sustained ligament damage to his right ankle during Sunday’s FA Cup win against Millwall.

“The injury is similar to the one suffered by the forward against Sunderland in Sept last year, however it is not considered to be as severe.
“Harry will continue to be assessed by our medical staff while he undergoes his rehabilitation at our Training Centre.”
The player himself has vowed to come from the injury stronger than ever and the race will be on to see if he can feature again for Tottenham this season.
Always come back stronger from injuries and will be working hard with the medical staff to do that again. Thanks for all the messages. pic.twitter.com/zGYQhw8IaB
