Spurs have confirmed forward Harry Kane has sustained a significant lateral ligament injury to his left ankle.

While the Spurs head coach admitted that Kane would most likely miss the rest of the season, he could make an appearance if his side have reached the Champions League final in June.

Tottenham also lost Dele Alli to injury during their European win against City, the midfielder having to be replaced late on after injuring his hand.

While they will be without Kane and Alli, there are no other new injury problems for Pochettino to deal with.

"We need to assess him this afternoon and I am not too optimistic", the manager said.

Kane suffered the injury following a challenge from Fabian Delph.

Tottenham Hotspur's England striker Harry Kane suffered serious ankle ligament damage in Tuesday's 1-0 Champions League victory over Manchester City, the Premier League club said on Thursday.

Pochettino did not allude as to whether surgery would be needed but did say Spurs have plans in place for Kane's recovery.

Lucas Moura scored a hat trick as Tottenham stayed on course for a top-four finish in the Premier League by beating Huddersfield 4-0 on Saturday.

Pochettino's men are fourth in the league and are one point clear of fifth-placed Arsenal and three points ahead of sixth-placed Manchester United.

"Pochettino added: "[It] is not a game to rest players but we have a lot of players who played 90 minutes (against City) who maybe aren't in condition to play for different reasons.

"Nobody should feel that we don't care about what happened in the last few months".

"We need to assess him every day, but we need to have proper answers to see when he can possibly start training with the team".

Meanwhile the likes of Serge Aurier (hamstring), Eric Dier (hip flexor) and Erik Lamela (hamstring) are out of the Huddersfield fixture.
