Former Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood has claimed that Harry Kane’s injury could be a season-ender for the club if Jose Mourinho does not change the team’s style of play.

Kane injured both of his ankles against Liverpool and had to come off at half-time and although he is yet to have a scan, some reports indicate that Spurs are hopeful that he could be back in around three weeks.

Tottenham have been heavily reliant on the England captain to both score and create goals this season and Sherwood believes that the team cannot afford to defend deep and play on the counter-attack if the 27-year-old is out of action for a sustained period.

Here’s what the 51-year-old told Sky Sports about how Tottenham will cope without Kane:

As much as I hate Tim Sherwood and disagree with almost everything he says, he is right on this occasion. If we do not have Kane feeding Son up front, we have to create a lot more chances to score goals. Hopefully, Mourinho recognises that and opens up a bit more than he has in some games this season.
