LONDON: Harry Kane is “optimistic” he can return from his most current injuries setback in just two months, in accordance to Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho.

The England captain has been through scans and, according to his manager, is upbeat about a swift recovery.
He will nearly definitely miss out on house online games against Chelsea and West Brom, as effectively as the FA Cup fifth-round trip to Everton, but could be back again to experience Leading League leaders Manchester Metropolis on February 13.
“The news is fairly great information,” Mourinho explained to club media. “Soon after Liverpool, no idea. Then the following day we were considering about a few weeks, anything like that.
“I do not want to be tremendous-optimistic but Harry is optimistic.
“He has the practical experience of some accidents in ankles and in Harry’s brain it is a pair of months, so let us see if he is proper.”
Kane has scored or assisted 23 of Tottenham’s 34 Premier League aims this time.
True Madrid loanee Gareth Bale was supplied a uncommon possibility to impress in his absence versus Brighton but was mostly ineffective, when Brazilian ahead Carlos Vinicius went closest to an equaliser after coming off the bench.
Spurs, who topped the table in December, have now won just two of their earlier 9 league online games and are 6 points adrift of the top 4.
Captain Hugo Lloris claimed the staff had been lacking assurance as they put together to host Chelsea on Thursday.
“It is the second to adhere collectively but there is a great deal of disappointment from the gamers, from the manager and coaching staff, from the supporters because we hope a lot more from us,” he reported.
“It is a circumstance we will need to take care of as a workforce. The self confidence will be back again as quickly as we get just one very good consequence.”
