According to Sky Sports News, Tottenham striker Harry Kane will be out until the start of
March after sustaining an ankle injury during Tottenham’s loss against Manchester United. Kane seemed to have been caught on his ankle when contesting for a ball with United defender Phil Jones towards the end of the match and was seen limping after the final whistle.
Scans have now confirmed that the England captain has sustained ligament damage in his left ankle. The injury comes at the worst possible time for Spurs as they are without South Korean forward Heung-Min Son owing to his involvement in the ongoing Asia Cup.
Further, Tottenham are entering a crucial phase in their season and their results over the next month and a half will go a long way towards determining whether their season is a success.
Here are the games that Harry Kane is likely to miss due to his injury:
Fulham (A) – Premier League – January 20
Chelsea (A) – EFL Cup – January 24
Crystal Palace (A) – FA Cup – January 27
Watford (H) – Premier League – January 30
Newcastle (H) – Premier League – February 2
Leicester (H) – Premier League – February 10
Borussia Dortmund (H) – Champions League – February 13
Burnley – Premier League (A) – February 23
League Cup Final – February 25*
Chelsea – Premier League (A) – February 27
With the League title already looking like it is beyond Spurs, it is imperative that they go all out for a trophy this season. However, with both Kane and Son missing the second leg of the semifinal against Chelsea, and the England captain likely to be out for the Champions League tie against Dortmund, Tottenham’s season could be completely derailed before the striker returns.
Although Spurs have a good record in recent years even without Kane, the next few weeks will be a massive test of the squad’s bottle.
