Tottenham Hotspur suffered something worse than a defeat this weekend as they took on Man United at Wembley.

Not only did Spurs drop all three points in the 1-0 loss, but they also saw Harry Kane limp from the field of play at full time.

The England striker looked to take Phil Jones’ studs on his ankle close to the final whistle, an area of his body that has always been a problem for Kane.

The Guardian has reported that the star striker expects to be out for at least four weeks, meaning he will miss pivotal fixtures including the Champions League tie against Borussia Dortmund.

What makes matters worse is that Heung Min Son, Tottenham’s go to man for goals in Kane’s absence, is away on international duty.

Lucas Moura has also been struggling with an injury of his own, leaving Spurs with little options up front, apart from Fernando Llorente.

Jan Vertonghen had this to say on Kane and Son (Guardian): “These two guys are just massive for us. Especially over the last couple of months they’ve been immense. We hope they’ll both be back soon. It’s one of those things but the other guys have to stand up now.”

Hugo Lloris said: “We all know how important Harry is in our team but he is not all of our team. Football is about the team and every player is ready to help the team. In football during the season you have ups and downs and you have to always adapt to those, and we will see about ‘H’.

“It is better when you have all your best players on the field but that can happen here or it can happen at other clubs. With or without him we will see how we do.”
