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.
