Latest: Toby Alderweireld and Harry Kane

Toby Alderweireld and Harry Kane will both return from injury before the end of the month according to reports. Both appeared to sustain bad injuries but (touch wood) neither are as bad as first thought.


Kane suffered ankle ligament damage which threatened to rule him out for 8-10 weeks. However, scans revealed the injury wasn’t as bad as first thought and Kane should be back in light training next week and could potentially be fit enough to play some part against Leicester (29/10).

Realistically, Kane will be looking at the week after – a crunch clash North London Derby to be back for.

The extent of Toby Alderweireld’s injury is yet to be revealed however he was snapped after the match with team mates playing games consoles without a leg/knee brace. This has allayed fears the injury was too bad and manager Pochettino has suggested as much:

We need to wait for the scan but we believe it’s not a big issue. He got a knock on his leg but it was better yesterday and today,” Pochettino said on Monday, before suggesting Alderweireld could be back in training next week.

“In the moment he went down, it was tough and, from our position, it was difficult to see what had happened. But it wasn’t a big issue. It was a big knock, a heavy knock in his leg, but we hope it’s not a big problem for the next week.


Injuries are a part of football and – although arguably it’s our two best players that are injured –  we should be thankful that the injuries were not as bad as they could have been.
