Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has raised hopes that Harry Kane could make a far quicker return from injury than was initially hoped.

The striker was removed at half-time in the 3-1 defeat to Liverpool last week after sustaining injury to both ankles in the first half.

Mourinho said after the defeat that he expected Kane to be out for around three to four weeks, ruling him out of a crucial and hectic period for Spurs.

However, speaking after the 1-0 defeat to Brighton, Mourinho says Kane could return in around ten days’ time.

‘The news is pretty good news.

‘After Liverpool, no idea. Then the next day, we were thinking about three weeks, something like that.

‘I don’t want to be super-optimistic, but Harry is optimistic, he has the experience of some injuries in his ankles and in Harry’s mind, it’s a couple of weeks, so let’s see if he’s right.’

Spurs take on Chelsea on Thursday, where they’ll look to arrest a recent slump in form.

Tottenham have won just one of their last four Premier League matches, picking up four points from the 12 available.

It’s left Spurs in sixth place in the table, six points from fourth-placed Leicester City.
