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.
