Harry Kane had the worst possible start to 2020 after he was forced off in the 75th minute of the game against Southampton on New Year’s Day with a hamstring tear.

While Spurs made an official announcement confirming that the striker had suffered a tear, they did not confirm whether it was a grade 2 or a grade 3 tear. While grade two is a partial tearing of the hamstring, grade three is a complete muscle tear.

Sports Medicine Australia report that if the Spurs No.10 has suffered a grade two tear, then he could be out for at least four weeks and possibly a maximum of eight weeks.

If however, it is a grade three tear, it is claimed that Kane could require surgery and might potentially be out of action for around three months.

Kane has suffered ankle injuries in the last two seasons but has recovered quicker than expected from those. Spurs fans will be hopeful that their talisman once again makes a swift return to action.

The fact that the club aren’t being forthright about the extent of the injury is not a good sign. If it is true that we might be without Kane for up to three months, then we really do need to act in the transfer window and bring in a viable replacement. Otherwise, our season can potentially fall apart.

Kane also needs to ensure that he is fully recovered from his hamstring injury, given their tendency for a repeat issue.
