Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane is not expected to be risked for the Southampton game in the Premier League on Wednesday night with a big game against Manchester City at the weekend.


Spurs and holders City meet in the Carabao Cup final at the Wembley Stadium on Sunday with the former hoping to break a trophyless run spanning 13 years. The last time Spurs won any form of major trophy was at the 2008 League Cup final. They saw off London rivals Chelsea to win the trophy.

On their part, Manchester City have won the Carabao Cup trophy in each of the last three seasons and are heavy favourites ahead of this year’s final on Sunday.

Kane is a big doubt for that Carabao Cup final after he twisted his ankle in the 2-2 draw with hosts Everton in a league encounter played at Goodison Park on Friday night. The England international scored a brace before going off injured in the final minutes of the game. He was replaced by compatriot Dele Alli for the final minutes of the game.

Interim Tottenham Hotspur manager Ryan Mason gave an update on his injury on Tuesday in his pre-match press conference ahead of the Premier League game with Southampton at home. According to him, they are taking it on a day-to-day basis as regards the ankle injury.

Kane could miss out on the chance of adding to his tally of 21 goals in the Premier League this season against Southampton at the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Wednesday evening. The two goals against the Toffees last week Friday took him two clear of Liverpool talisman Mohamed Salah in the race for the Golden Boot Award.

Spurs need to beat Southampton to rescue their dwindling hopes of qualifying for Champions League football via the league.
