Kane has been accused of attempting to 'back in' to opponents while leaping in the air, meaning they'll take a nasty tumble.
Fans have reacted to the incident and they think it had a massive impact on Spurs, who registered two shots on target all game.
I mean we always said he was gonna end up injuring someone

That's the point, the player usually jumps and then because Kane doesn't, he draws the foul
But the one time the other player doesn't jump, Kane gets injured opposed to risking the other player to an injury

Thought that at time
Was jus about do his trademark (an dangerous) bk into an under a centre-half trick - to win a free-kick
But Hendo isn't a centre- half an wasnt up already .........
Serves him right

He expected Hendo to jump and Hendo outsmarted him. Reap what you sow, Harry.

Kane does this all the time, I'm surprised he hasn't seriously hurt someone before now, I don't wish injury on players, but this is karma for all the times he has backed into a jumping player and hit the deck to win free kicks.

Kane has a history of ankle problems and manager Jose Mourinho admitted he could be out for a few weeks.
"The second injury was worse than the first one," he said per The Guardian. "For Harry to leave a game when the team is losing is not a nothing injury. There are some players you can't replace. Both ankles getting big."
When asked about a potential timeframe on the injury, he replied: "We have to wait and see."
Mourinho continued: "It's the mood of a team that it was difficult to accept you are losing, difficult to accept the nature of the goal because the goal is in some aspects a replica of the chance they had in the first minute.
"So it's of course a mood where people are not happy - but then we have to move. Then Harry is injured and we need to try to do something. Unlucky that we started the second half conceding a goal."
Victory for Liverpool takes them back up to fourth in the Premier League, while Spurs are sixth and four points off the Champions League places.
