Harry Kane begins stint on the sidelines for Tottenham against Gillingham

Harry Kane will miss Tottenham's EFL Cup third-round tie against Gillingham after damaging ligaments in his right ankle.

Kane's absence means Vincent Janssen is likely to start up front at White Hart Lane and Danny Rose is also out as he recovers from a hamstring problem.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino is expected to rotate his starting line-up, meaning Mousa Dembele and Eric Dier are unlikely to be risked after they both suffered from cramp last weekend.

Provisional squad: Lloris, Vorm, Lopez, Walker, Trippier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Carter-Vickers, Wimmer, Davies, Dier, Wanyama, Carroll, Dembele, Winks, Sissoko, Alli, Lamela, Edwards, Nkoudou, Eriksen, Son, Janssen.
