Spurs to discover if Kane can play again this season

Tottenham expect to find out on Tuesday whether Harry Kane will play again this season.

Kane's right ankle was still too swollen to undergo scans on Monday but the striker will now take those tests on Tuesday, as well as advice from specialists, before finding out the extent of the damage in the next 24 hours.

He missed seven weeks with an ankle injury earlier in the season and the same lay-off this time would see the 23-year-old come back against Arsenal, on April 30. There is optimism, however, that Kane was able to walk immediately after the injury occurred in Sunday's 6-0 victory over Millwall while six months ago against Sunderland he had to be carried off on a stretcher.

If Kane can recover in six weeks, he could feature in the FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea on the weekend of April 22, which marks the start of a potentially decisive period in Tottenham's campaign.

Mauricio Pochettino's men host Arsenal in the Premier League the following weekend before a tricky trip to West Ham and a home game against Manchester United.

Kane is certain to miss Sunday's match at home to Southampton as well as England's fixtures against Germany and Lithuania later this month.

Hat-trick hero Harry Kane labelled Tottenham's 4-0 victory over West Brom their best display of the season so far.

Kane, who became a father for the first time last weekend, rounded off a brilliant week with a fine treble at White Hart Lane.

"We were outstanding today," the 23-year-old England striker said on Sky Sports. "I'd say that would probably be our best performance of the season. We could've scored a lot more if it wasn't for Ben (Foster) in goal - he made some unbelievable saves.

"We wanted to keep our streak going, and we've done that."

Kane was told after the game he had become the Spurs player to reach 60 Premier League goals the quickest.

"That's fantastic," he said. "I don't look at records too much - I just try to go out there and play and score for my team, win for my team. It's a fantastic day all round."

The new father added: "It's amazing. The week has been a bit of a whirlwind, obviously having a little daughter - just amazing, the whole week, and to finish it off like this is the best way possible."
