Very, very bad news for Tottenham Hotspur. Looking poised to make a championship push, or at least finish above Chelsea, Spurs has lost their top goal scorer, Striker Harry Kane.
In last weekends match versus Manchester United, Kane suffered an ankle injury which took him out of the competition. Upon further examination, it has been decided that the ankle ligaments will keep him out until early March.
This is a huge blow to Tottenham. Without Harry Kane, who looks like if Ryan Gosling were athletic and not a complete liability at cornerback, Spurs will have to rely on Fernando Llorente. He is one of the better back up options in the EPL when he is not always tripping over himself, but he is also not the Golden Boot candidate that Kane is. The injury will keep Kane out of both legs of the Round of 16 Champions League matchup with Borussia Dortmund and the second leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final versus Chelsea.
Tottenham is also missing Son Heung-min who is on international duty with South Korea in the Asia Cup. Missing these two will could prove to be very problematic heading into late January and February.
