Tottenham will today begin the familiar process of evaluating Harry Kane's ankle injury suffered in the 2-2 draw at Everton on Friday.

Kane limped off in stoppage time after his two goals earned Spurs a point at Goodison Park and boss Jose Mourinho was unable to give much detail on the severity of the issue after the game.

Mourinho said that a diagnosis would take place this weekend, with a scan likely depending on how Kane feels on Saturday morning.

It is a process that Spurs and Kane know only too well as this is his seventh separate ankle injury since 2016.

The injury puts doubts over Kane's availability for next Sunday's Carabao Cup final against Manchester City in what would be a bitter blow for Spurs.

The England captain, who made no reference to the injury in social media posts after the game, again was key for Spurs on Merseyside.

His two goals, which take him clear in the race for the Premier League Golden Boot with 21, masked another dismal performance by Mourinho's side whose Champions League qualification hopes are fading fast.
