Fri 29 January 2021 | 13:17

The Englishman had to leave the pitch after receiving two tackles in the first-half of their game with the Reds.

Tottenham

star,

Harry Kane

, was forced to leave the field during the half-time of their encounter with

Liverpool

after a number of tackles in the first 45 minutes left him with an ankle injury.

The first blow for the

England

international came in the 13th minute of the game when Kane came face-to-face with Liverpool’s

Thiago

to later be halted by

Jordan Henderson

.    

Kane’s discomfort led Jose Mourinho to replace the player with

Erik Lamela

in the second-half. But that didn’t stop Jurgen Klopp’s men from scoring three goals in the Spurs target.

Though there has been no official news about Kane’s injury, Mourinho hopes his talisman, who has been one of Tottenham’s key-figures alongside

Son Heung-min

, hasn’t suffered from any serious damages.

For their upcoming match Tottenham will be challenging

Chelsea

for a top-four place in the

Premier League

table.
