No Kane? No problem as Lucas treble fires Spurs into third

Harry Kane provides England and Tottenham with major injury blow

MAURICIO POCHETTINO is unsure as to whether Harry Kane will feature for Tottenham Hotspur again this season - and the Spurs chief spoke about further injury worries facing his side as they prepare to take on already relegated Huddersfield Town at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday lunchtime.

Withstanding the loss of top-scorer Kane for potentially the rest of the campaign, with Alli also operating at less than 100 percent, will be a stern test of Tottenham's mental strength. His hat-trick was complete deep into stoppage time, substitute Heung-Min Son's pass inside the defender finding Lucas who once again dispatched an excellent finish, the ideal end to a flawless afternoon. "It all depends on the time, we will see if we arrive in a position where he is comfortable to play".

"And when Hugo saved the penalty (against Manchester City), my ears were buzzing because of the fans and how loud it was".

He nearly got another with a volley that cannoned back off the crossbar. We know that it's not easy to play here, because if you give them space, they can run you ragged, they can do everything with the ball. That's the plan now. And we went straight up the other end with a break of our own, only for Kongolo to deflect Llorente's effort wide.

This is the fifth ankle injury since September 2016 for Kane, who has come back ahead of schedule on a number of occasions, including this year when he returned two weeks before expected.

The England striker does have impressive powers of recovery, though, as he returned to action two weeks quicker than expected earlier this year and is targeting a return to fitness for a possible Champions League final and UEFA Nations League semi-final in June.

Pochettino did not allude as to whether surgery would be needed but did say Spurs have plans in place for Kane's recovery.

However on Friday Pochettino insisted: 'It's a stat that means nothing, Harry is one of the best players in the world and of course we're going to miss him. I'm so happy. Thank you to God and to my team-mates.

South Korea forward Son did not take long to prove Tottenham aren't a one-man team as he hit the victor against City after Kane went off.

Spurs picked up from where left off in the first as Fernando Llorente rattled the frame of the goal inside the opening five minutes.

Huddersfield were so limited in all areas, that Tottenham's make-shift line-up were able to play their way into rhythm.

"When you have 25 players they need to have the opportunity to play. In a way it makes it more hard", Siewert said.
