Tottenham will maintain top four spot despite injury to Harry Kane

Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-final is five weeks and six days after he picked up the injury seven minutes into the game against Millwall last Sunday.

The Tottenham striker suffered ankle ligament damage on his right foot for the second time this season against Millwall on Sunday - an injury that previously sidelined him for seven weeks and ruled him out of 10 matches between September and November.

Pochettino says that Kane is in positive mood and jokes that he could be back inside four weeks, but the Spurs boss wouldn't be surprised if it was closer to the six week mark.

Because of the worldwide break at the end of the month, Kane might only miss four league matches - against Southampton, Burnley, Swansea and Watford.

"We had a very hard pre-season with players returning from Euro 2016, so today is completely different period and we are at a completely different level". We are finding our best form now and the team is more solid.

He said: "Harry is positive, which is good, but we need to be careful with his injury".

The prospect of the All Blacks playing England at Twickenham in November is gaining momentum. The All Blacks thrive on challenges so it's something the players would embrace.

Kane's injury comes at a bad time, and it will slow down Pochettino's Tottenham. One of our best performances was against City here and he was the striker when Harry was injured.

He said: "It was a different period".

"We are not anxious, we are in good condition." the Argentine, whose second-placed side host his former club Southampton on Sunday, told reporters on Friday.

Spurs are now second in the division but could find themselves 13 points behind league leaders Chelsea by the time they kick off on Sunday, with Antonio Conte's Blues playing at Stoke the day earlier. That offensive spearhead will be hoping to make it an unlucky 13 for Spurs cos we have won 12 games in a row at the Lane.

Tottenham transition away from a counter-attacking side and into a team that plays for possession. It won't be an excuse if we don't win games or achieve our aims because Kane isn't in the team'. It was Ronald Koeman's men then that beat us 2-1 in the penultimate game of our season with two Steven Davis goals which led to Saints making their highest finish in 6th-place.

"We need to recognise that their job is so hard".
