Tottenham fans’ worst fears were confirmed today as the club announced that Harry Kane will be out until March after injuring his ankle against Manchester United on Sunday.

Scans revealed today that the England captain has damaged ligaments in his left ankle.

This means that Kane will be missing some crucial games including the second leg of the Carabao Cup semifinal against Chelsea as well as the first leg of the round of 16 Champions League tie against Borussia Dortmund.

While some Spurs fans were predictably inconsolable after the news, others implored Daniel Levy to be open his cheque book and bring in a striker in the January transfer window.

Here’s how some Spurs fans reacted to the news:


While Tottenham have a surprisingly good record when Kane hasn’t been playing in recent seasons, there is no doubt that the striker will be a huge miss for the Lillywhites.

Tottenham desperately need the likes of Dele Alli, Lucas Moura, Christian Eriksen and Erik Lamela to step up to compensate for the goal threat Spurs will be missing particularly given that Son Heung-Min is also expected to miss the next five games due to his involvement in the Asia Cup.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Spurs will never sign a striker Levy hate spending money and his mate Poch is the same they will go with what they’re got come the end of the season and they finish outside the top four they will then say that they should of signed someone

  2. Well, Moura is injured. Not sure of any return date for him. That leaves Dele, Eriksen and Lamela. Lamela hasn’t played my (any?) full games recently…maybe he cannot do that anymore. Llorente is the obvious replacement for Kane…but he is not exactly exciting, is he? He rarely scores (ignore that recent cup game with his hat trick. Our midfield is not exactly robust ATM either. Dembele on the way out, Wanyama not back from injury yet (although close it seems), Sissoko injured (not sure how bad his injury is).

  3. Two home defeats in a row mean that Spurs’ outside chance of winning the Premier League is dead especially given the form and squads of Liverpool and Manchester City. It’ll be a struggle to finish in the top 4.The need for a good striker is obvious now that Arry will be out for many weeks. Will Daniel Levy produce the cash? Will a top-quality striker want to come to Tottenham knowing that, as soon as Arry is fit again, he’ll be warming the bench?
