Tottenham Hotspur have now been without Harry Kane for almost a month, after the striker sustained another ankle injury against Man United in January.

Despite the loss of their main man, Spurs have actually made some invaluable gains from his absence, and it may end up being a blessing in disguise.

Not only has Kane been granted a much-needed mental and physical rest, but others have stepped up in his absence, something that will benefit Spurs in the long run.

Tottenham are yet to drop points in the Prem since Kane’s injury, and also managed to smash three past Dortmund in the Champions League without reply last night.

Heung Min Son is the name on everyone’s lips right now, but Fernando Llorente has been a key figure for Spurs in recent weeks too.

After a tricky start, getting used to playing full games, dealing with the pressure, and even playing multiple matches in a week for the first time in a good while, Llorente is thriving.

The former World Cup winner has now been involved in nine goals in his last nine games, with six strikes of his own, and three assists.

Perhaps Spurs do have the back up for Kane they always needed?
