Tottenham’s star man Harry Kane was forced off with an early injury at White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon against Millwall.

The England striker picked up a suspected ankle injury in the seventh minute of the FA Cup quarter-final clash and was replaced moments later by Christian Eriksen.

Kane looked a big threat during the opening stages and picked up the injury catching his ankle following a shot at goal.

Mauricio Pochettino and the Tottenham supporters will be hoping that Kane’s injury is nothing too serious as they approach the business end of the season.

Spurs currently sit second in the Premier League and are 10 points behind runaway leaders Chelsea with 11 matches to play.

Ahead of Tottenham’s last FA Cup game at White Hart Lane, Alan Shearer and Teddy Sherringham sang the praises of the 23-year-old striker. 

When asked whether he could catch Shearer’s Premier League goal-scoring record, the former Newcastle striker said it depends on injuries and whether he remains at Tottenham.

Shearer said: ‘If he stays free from injury and of course if he stays here because over the years, Tottenham have sold a lot of their best players. It depends whether Tottenham are going to be successful in the next two or three years I would imagine.’

‘What I would say about Harry and I’m a huge fan, there was a time in my career, similar to his age now, where I thought the penny dropped, I thought I deserved to be in that list of players out there at the time and I think he is at that stage in his career now where he thinks that.

‘He can do almost everything, he can score almost every goal, whether it’s headers, whether it’s left foot, right foot and when you get to this stage in your career.

‘You’ve now got to get past two defenders because more often than not, there are two guys looking to pick you up. You are not just battling one or two and that’s a sign of a very good player. 

Shearer added: ‘He has got a hell of a record, as I said I am a huge fan of his, he is handling the situation very well. For the third consecutive year, he has scored 20 plus goals now.
