Tottenham hope Harry Kane can return vs West Ham in only THREE WEEKS after striker injured both ankles against Liverpool

JOSE MOURINHO hopes Harry Kane will be back for Tottenham’s top-four clash with West Ham on February 20.

The Spurs striker injured BOTH of his ankles in his team’s 3-1 home defeat by Liverpool on Thursday.

The England captain, 27, is awaiting scans to determine the extent of the problems.

If there is bone or ligament damage he could be out for at least six weeks.

That would make him a major doubt for the Three Lions World Cup qualifiers against San Marino, Albania and Poland in March.

But Spurs boss Mourinho is keeping his fingers crossed the injuries are not serious.

And he hopes Kane will only be out for two to three weeks.

Asked whether Gareth Bale, who has struggled since his summer return from Real Madrid, could help lessen the impact caused by Kane’s injury, Mourinho said: “I hope so. He didn’t play much. He played 16 minutes with the team losing 3-1 and Liverpool controlling the game.

“But he played 90 minutes at Wycombe in the cup, which for him was a big impact. So it’s a crucial moment for him. He’s getting better and better.

“When you lose a player of Harry’s dimension and quality the other guys have to step up and hopefully he can help us.”

Meanwhile, Serge Aurier is set to be disciplined by the club for storming out at half-time against Liverpool.

The defender was unhappy at being subbed.

And he left the ground following a blazing dressing room row with Mourinho and skipper Hugo Lloris before the second half got underway.
