Tottenham's talisman Harry Kane will be set to miss several weeks of action after sustaining a moderately serious injury to his left ankle. According to the social media team over at Wembley, the striker has damaged some ligaments in his ankle, which is obviously a cause of concern for the team. They will thus continue to monitor his recovery over this next month in order to confirm he comes back at the right time.
Kane sustained his injury midway through Spurs' 1-0 league loss to the revitalized Manchester United. The defeat has all but stalled the club's upward push to the top of the English top flight, as they now sit uncomfortably third in the table and eight points behind first-place squad Liverpool.

With their key man away and their stellar left winger Heung-min Son currently competing in the Asian Cup for South Korea, Mauricio Pochettino is going to have a difficult time both in righting the ship and continuing the excellent progression they had just last month. Before the beginning of March, Tottenham will compete in nine matches.
This bundle includes six league matches against the likes of Fulham, Watford, Newcastle, Leicester, Burnley, and Chelsea, one EFL semi-final against Chelsea, an FA Cup fourth round away day at Crystal Palace, and a critical Champions League Round of 16 away game at Borussia Dortmund.
So let us know on any of our social media or on the Fancred app how you all believe Tottenham will do before their key man up top returns to full-time action.
