Tottenham's Kane has 'significant' ankle ligament damage

Pochettino Goal difference can be decisive in race for top-four finish

The 26-year-old Lucas was understandably all smiles at the end and even brought his one-year-old son Miguel on to the pitch after the final whistle to the delight of the home fans.

Despite the absence of injured stars Kane and Dele Alli, Mauricio Pochettino's much-changed side made it three victories from their first three games at the impressive Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The Brazilian bagged a stunning hat-trick against already relegated Huddersfield and he celebrated with his adorable son, Miguel.

"Always the best things that can happen in life are when you share your happiness with the people you love".

It was a needless challenge, made on the halfway line, but Pochettino insists that sort of commitment makes Kane the player he is and he can not change him.

"If he wasn't playing football and he wasn't going over on it then I wouldn't do anything about it but every time you turn your ankle you run the risk of lateral ligament damage in the ankle". Eriksen was the architect for the first, drilling an excellent cross from the right which the Brazilian finished from 10 yards, and in stoppage-time he latched onto a attractive through-pass from substitute Son Heung-Min to flash a spectacular effort past the helpless goalkeeper. We have a very tough period ahead.

Lucas, who started out playing for Sao Paulo and has 35 caps for Brazil, joined Spurs from PSG in the 2018 January transfer window for a reported fee of 25 million pounds ($32.70 million) with Pochettino hoping his electric pace would unlock defences.

City defender Fabian Delph inadvertently caught Kane when the striker tried to block a clearance, leaving Pochettino fearing the worst after the game. I'll never forget this moment. "I'm happy first for my team". Heung-Min Son and Toby Alderweirled are some of the options Tottenham have on the bench.

"I'm so happy because I did well", he added. Pochettino admitted he was unsure whether the England midfielder would face the Terriers: "We need to asses him this afternoon and tomorrow and take the decision".

"It looks like a similar [injury he suffered against United], but next week we'll have a proper answer because he needs to see the specialist and see his rehab".
