Harry Kane has a new time frame on his injury

Harry Kane

Tottenham desperately need Harry Kane back for their end of season run-in.

For once, the schedule has actually been relatively kind; the international break falls at the end of March, but the main goal will be to have the striker back for the north London derby at the end of April.

A week earlier, and it’s the FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea, so that would be an added bonus.

The England international has once again sustained ankle ligament damage on the same foot as earlier in the season.

When he initially took the knock against Sunderland in September, he was out for seven weeks, but the one positive is that it doesn’t appear to be as serious this time around.


The Sun report that Kane could actually be back within four to six weeks – now, four sounds a little optimistic, but six is certainly an improvement.

Until he limped off against Millwall, the 23-year-old was the favourite to land the Premier League Golden Boot two years in a row.

That’s unlikely to happen now unless the likes of Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez embark on a drought, but he can still play a massive part in Spurs’ fight for second.

    Harry Kane’s injury has brought Pochettino’s appalling handling of the Erik Lamela situation clearly into the spotlight. Average Lamela should have been off-loaded last season when he was worth something & replaced by a player who scores goals. Now Lamela is worth ‘virtually nothing’ & we are stuck with Vincent Janssen who may, I hope, rise to the occasion. The problem with Harry being out is that it also makes Dele less effective because of their understanding. Of course Harry will be ‘rushed back’ too quickly & the whole scenario will start all over again which is what happens when you ‘rely’ on one player to score goals.

      Spurs have definitely come unstuck by over-relying on Kane – Lamela has been injured though, so it hasn’t made it easy for Poch to sell him, no? Problem also is that while Lamela/Son etc. contribute goals, they can’t necessarily be relied upon as game-changers like Kane can.
