Harry Kane sustained an ankle injury against Sunderland – and fans have passed on their best wishes to the striker on Twitter ahead of Monday scans.

Kane, 23, left White Hart Lane on crutches and with his right foot in a protective boot following Spurs’ 1-0 win over David Moyes’ team on Sunday.

The striker hit the 58th-minute winner to see off 10-man Sunderland but he was carried off on a stretcher in the 86th after turning his ankle in a challenge with defender Papy Djilobodji.

Kane will have scans on Monday to determine the extent of the injury but Spurs are concerned that he faces a lengthy absence which will deal a massive blow to their title ambitions.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino is convinced that the England international has suffered ligament damage and said he will be assessed by the club on Monday.

Supporters on social media wished their star striker all the best as they await the results of a scan.

Here is a selection of the messages on Twitter:

Kane enjoyed a stellar individual campaign last season after scoring 25 goals in the Premier League and winning the Golden Boot.

The England international was a key member of the Spurs squad that was pushing for the league title last term.

Despite Kane’s heroics, Mauricio Pochettino’s side faltered toward the end of the season, finishing third in the league behind eventual winners Leicester City and north London rivals Arsenal.
