Tottenham Hotspur head coach Jose Mourinho is hoping that the ankle injury suffered by Harry Kane in the 2-2 draw at Everton is not too serious.

Kane scored both Spurs goals in the stalemate at Goodison Park on Friday evening, before being forced to leave the field deep into stoppage time after appearing to land awkwardly following an aerial challenge.

Let me be optimistic and believe that it's nothing serious.

The severity of the issue is yet to be determined, but Mourinho is clearly concerned with his side playing host to Southampton in the Premier League on Wednesday, before taking on Manchester City in the League Cup final a week on Sunday.

The Portuguese told his club's official website: "Even Harry doesn't know much, he just had that negative feeling that brought him out of the game. I believe probably Sunday is the day to have a different view and to try to anticipate what can happen next week.

"We all felt the same fears of something that stops him playing Wednesday and especially Sunday, but we will see."

Mourinho added on Sky Sports: "For him to leave the pitch, 2-2, with a couple of minutes to go, is obviously because he felt something, but let me be optimistic and believe that he has time to recover.

"Let me be optimistic and believe that it's nothing serious."

Kane's first goal against the Toffees was his 20th Premier League goal of the season, a mark he has now reached on five occasions.

Only Manchester City ace Sergio Aguero (six) and former Newcastle United, Blackburn Rovers and Southampton star Alan Shearer (seven) have done so more often than Kane.

Kane, on 21, is now 6/5 to be leading scorer in the Premier League this season, with Liverpool's Mohamed Salah (19) available at 8/13.
