Mauricio Pochettino refuses to put a date on Harry Kane's Tottenham return

"Preliminary assessments have confirmed that Harry Kane has damaged lateral ligaments in his right ankle", Tottenham said on their website.

And according to French radio station, RMC, Tottenham chief Pochettino has spoken to the player about a move as he looks to strengthen his squad with more attacking talent over the summer. "But English players have learned very quickly and might be the masters now".

Alli scored for the first time in 16 appearances in the 4-1 win over Bournemouth on Sunday to take him to double figures for his third straight campaign at Spurs.

Spurs visit Swansea City in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup on Saturday and Pochettino said the competition had become a top priority as it represented the team's only hope of winning a trophy this season.

"I am not an egocentric person, who likes to win titles to put on my shoulder". Dele, no? The question [about whether he should do more] - I'm a little bit: 'Wow.' We expect more from him?

Prior to that, Alderweireld played in the 2-0 win over Newport - also in the FA Cup - having not played since the thrilling 3-1 win over Real Madrid on November 1. But I think we're going to fix the problem.

"It's not only confidence, it's because he feels something in his ankle so he cannot express himself in the way that he can". "We will see because he's going to play for the national team [in the upcoming friendlies] and players are not machines", Pochettino said.

"He is always positive and he is focused on recovering as soon as possible".

"We are talking about one of the best strikers in the world, you can not compare [him] with the others [in the squad]", said the Tottenham boss.

Mauricio Pochettino has acclaimed Dele Alli as the best player for his age in world football.

"For me, who is in that position is not as important as how you are going to use the space and try to overcome the tactics of the opponents, but we have enough quality and different alternatives and now I have to pick who is best for every single game while Harry is out injured".
