Tottenham will discover next week whether Harry Kane's latest ankle injury will rule him out for the rest of the season.

Kane suffered significant lateral ligament damage to his left ankle during Tuesday's Champions League quarter-final win over Manchester City - his second such injury this year - and will see a specialist next week after an initial scan on Thursday.

Boss Mauricio Pochettino admits it is going to be "difficult" for the England captain to return this season, with Spurs hoping to reach their first Champions League semi-final and book another top-four Premier League finish.

Pochettino says they will do everything they can to make it happen.

"We'll see because it is still five weeks," Pochettino said ahead of hosting Huddersfield today. "We need to assess and it will be difficult, it is going to be tough.

"It looks similar (to his last injury) but next week we will have a proper answer. He needs to see the specialist next week and then we will see how his rehab goes.

"Of course, we will try to do everything to get him recovered as soon as possible. We'll see what happens in the Champions League but it's only five weeks we have to recover."
