Breaking News: Harry Kane Is “Getting Injured All The Time”

Harry Kane of Tottenham Hotspur did not practice with his teammates today in preparation for the club's Carabao Cup final against Manchester City on Sunday.

Kane missed Tottenham's 2-1 victory over Southampton on Wednesday due to an ankle injury he sustained in the club's 2-2 draw with Everton the week before.

Spurs play City at Wembley this weekend in the hopes of winning their first trophy since defeating Chelsea 2-1 in the 2008 final of the same tournament.

What's Been Said So Far? 

When asked about Kane's availability, interim head coach Ryan Mason said, "We're not sure yet."

“He didn't practice with the squad today, but we'll have a better idea tomorrow if we'll be able to get him back on the field.”

“Now it's a case of taking things one hour at a time. So, clearly, time is running out.

It's a case of waiting and seeing how he feels in the next four, six hours, and then proceeding from there.

“I won't be able to respond to your query until tomorrow. “No one is certain.”

How Did He Sustain His Injuries? 

Kane scored twice against Everton before limping off with an ankle injury late in the game.

The injury raised questions about Kane's availability for Sunday's final and England's Euro 2020 campaign, but he left Goodison Park without a protective boot or crutches, raising expectations of a swift recovery.

After undergoing a scan, he has not practiced since, missing Mason's first match as manager since Jose Mourinho was fired on Monday.

What Is Kane's Injury History? 

During his Tottenham career, Kane has been largely injury-free, although he has had minor ankle injuries on occasion.

In January 2019, he ripped his ankle ligaments and missed several weeks of play.

In the 2016-17 season, the 27-year-old also suffered two ankle injuries, missing 15 games as a result.

Is The Tottenham Striker Healthy Enough To Play In The Carabao Cup Final? 

Tottenham are also concerned about Harry Kane's fitness ahead of the Carabao Cup final against Manchester City, according to Ryan Mason.

In stoppage time of the recent 2-2 draw with Everton, the striker sustained an ankle injury, which proved to be Jose Mourinho's final match in charge.

Kane did not practice with the rest of the squad on Friday, according to Mason, who has taken his place in the interim.

He said, “We'll have a better idea tomorrow if we can get him back on the pitch.” “Now it's a matter of taking it hour by hour because the days are ticking away.”

At Goodison Park, the England captain was Spurs' best player, clinically converting two opportunities to score his 20th and 21st Premier League goals of the season, putting him two goals ahead of Mohamed Salah in the Golden Boot chase.

After appearing to roll his ankle in a seemingly harmless collision with Richarlison inside the Spurs penalty area, he was replaced by Dele Alli for the final few minutes.

Richarlison was taken to the ground when he attempted to strike an Everton corner, with Kane's right ankle trapped awkwardly under his body.

Kane was able to walk off the pitch unassisted, but the sight of him limping heavily and shaking his head as he made his way to the tunnel must have terrified Tottenham fans.

At the time, Mourinho said it was "too early to say" whether he would miss the Wembley showpiece on April 25.

After Harry Kane injury, did not say much about it, but he did post on Twitter, saying, "Disappointed with only a point." It's going to be a busy week.”

Spurs would be worried about Kane's proclivity for ankle injuries. Even though they beat Southampton 2-1 in Mason's first game in charge, the League Cup final represents their best hope of salvaging a disappointing season.

Kane has had eight different ankle injuries since the start of the 2016-17 season, causing him to miss 36 games in total, according to Transfermarkt.

Kane missed Tottenham's thrilling run to the 2019 Champions League final due to an ankle injury. Mauricio Pochettino was accused of rushing him back by starting him in the final loss to Liverpool at the expense of Lucas Moura, who had scored a hat-trick in the semi-final victory over Ajax.

Spurs will continue to monitor their key players' fitness, and a decision on whether or not he will play may not be made until the next day.

Return Timeline Unknown 

Harry Kane has broken his hamstring and will be out for an indefinite period of time, according to Tottenham Hotspur.

In Wednesday's 1-0 loss to Southampton, the striker sustained an injury that forced him to leave the field with 15 minutes left.

Spurs revealed his absence from their FA Cup match against Middlesbrough on Friday via their official Twitter account as part of Harry Kane news.

Boss Jose Mourinho then addressed Kane in his press conference, according to Charlie Eccleshare of The Athletic. Mourinho suggested Kane could be ready for a spell on the sidelines.

In 25 games this season, the striker has 17 goals and two assists, so his absence is a huge blow to Tottenham's attack.

In that regard, Heung-Min Son's return from suspension is a welcome boost—he has 10 goals and nine assists this season.

Tottenham do not have a senior centre-forward to replace Kane, so the South Korean could be moved further forward in Kane's absence.

Spurs' next league match is against Liverpool, and Manchester City visits on February 2, so it's not perfect.

Middlesbrough is only 16th in the Championship, but they have won four consecutive games heading into Sunday's match.

Spurs haven't been knocked out of the FA Cup in the third round by lower-league opposition since losing to Premier League side Leicester City in 2006, and they'll expect to keep the streak going even without Kane.
