Jan Vertonghen claims the team is now counting on this one man

For the second time this season, Spurs face a lengthy period without their vice captain and top goal scorer Harry Kane.

The England captain picked up yet another ankle ligament injury in the Champions League quarter final win over Man City on Tuesday.

Kane went in for a challenge with Fabian Delph, before trapping his ankle between Delph’s boot and the turf, twisting it and injuring himself in the process.

Harry immediately realised it was a nasty injury and hopped straight down the tunnel, before leaving the stadium later in a protective boot.

The last time Kane picked up this injury was only in January, and he was out for around a month, but many fear it could be the end of his season this time around.

As a result, Heung Min Son will likely step into the roll of lead goal scorer, as he did during Tottenham’s unbeaten run last time Kane was out injured.

Jan Vertonghen had this to say (Mirror): “Everyone is counting on Sonny. We’ll have Harry coming back from injury hopefully soon. Everyone needs to step up like we did before. We won I think all of our Premier League games without Harry and hopefully we can do it again.”
