Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho revealed that Harry Kane will miss "a few weeks" of action after injuring not one but both ankles in the 3-1 defeat to Liverpool on Thursday.

The loss at home to the previously out-of-sorts Premier League champions has created a gap between Spurs and the top four, and Kane being unavailable will not do their attempts to battle their way back into the Champions League qualification spots any favours.

Mourinho told the media after the game that he had no choice but to withdraw the forward at half-time, with Erik Lamela replacing him, when an earlier knock to his right ankle was followed by an awkward landing on his left foot.
