Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino fears Harry Kane will miss the remainder of the season with an ankle injury after admitting the strikers issue does not look good.

The forward limped out of Spurs 1-0 win against Manchester City when the score was goalless midway through the second half of a pulsating night in north London.

Pochettino was seen in a heated discussion with Fabian Delph after the incident that left Kane hobbling down the tunnel and the injury appears to be on the same left ankle that he injured in January in a defeat against Manchester United.

Spurs take a slender one-goal advantage to the Etihad next week where theyll be slight favourites to progress to the semi-finals.

Asked if Kane could miss the rest of the season, Pochettino nodded and said: If you see the action – it is an action where he twists the ankle and it can damage the ligament.

We have to check in the next few days. Its so painful but what can we do now? Its impossible [to change anything] we have to look forward and hope its not a big issue. We hope he can recover as soon as possible but it does not look good.

Spurs dominated for much of the game but could have been behind after just ten minutes when City were awarded a dubious penalty following a VAR review.
