Harry Kane made no mention of the injury he suffered at Everton in a short message he posted on Friday night.

The Tottenham forward was substituted in the closing stages of the 2-2 draw at Goodison Park having appeared to roll his ankle when jumping for a header.

Kane – who scored twice in the match – could now face a race against time to be fit for Tottenham’s Carabao Cup final against Manchester City next weekend, when he will hope to win his first trophy in Spurs colours.

Giving nothing away about his injury after the match, he tweeted: “Disappointed with only a point. Big week coming up.”

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho said he wasn’t sure of the severity of the injury immediately after the match, in which Spurs led 1-0 only for a Gylfi Sigurdsson brace to put Everton ahead before Kane’s equaliser.

“I think it’s too early to say something,” Mourinho told Sky Sports.

“For him to leave the pitch at 2-2 with a couple of minutes to go is obviously because he felt something. Let me be optimistic and see if he has time to recover, let’s see.”

“Let me be optimistic and believe it is nothing serious. It’s obvious he’s a very important player for us, but I cannot say much.”

Kane’s teammate Eric Dier admitted he was concerned for the forward, saying: “Obviously it’s always worrying when you see him limping because he doesn’t fall over easily and he takes a lot of knocks and doesn’t fall over easily.

“It’s early days to say what or how bad it is. He’s a tough boy and he’ll do as much as he can to be ready.”
