Harry Kane gives ankle update, shares how he feels after Tottenham comeback
By Dominic Toner
Harry Kane has revealed that he feels good after making his Tottenham return on Sunday.
Spurs recorded a 1-1 away draw against their north London rivals in the Premier League, with Kane’s second-half penalty cancelling out an own goal from team-mate Kevin Wimmer.
Kane, 23, made his return from injury in the league encounter after missing 10 games in all competitions with an ankle knock.
The forward expressed his relief to return to the action following his injury and believes Spurs did well to earn an away draw.
“It’s been a long time and it feels great to be out there with the team again,” Kane said, as quoted by the club’s official website. “As soon as the penalty was awarded it was a great opportunity to get back to scoring goals. It’s a tough place to come and we fought back for a draw. I feel good, my ankle is fine and it’s all positive.”

Kane had been sidelined for Spurs after sustaining ankle ligament damage against Sunderland in September.
The striker has been a huge miss for Mauricio Pochettino’s side and his replacement Vincent Janssen is still searching for his first goal from open play since his summer arrival.
He is considered the first-choice option and has scored an incredible 67 goals in just 134 appearances since breaking into the first team, with loan spells at Leyton Orient, Millwall, Norwich and Leicester helping his development as a youngster.
Spurs are still the only unbeaten side in the Premier League, but are now five points adrift of league leaders Liverpool.
