How will Spurs cope without Kane in the Premier League and Champions League?
Losing Harry Kane could barely come at a worse time for Tottenham, who must face some of their biggest games without their talisman.
Spurs confirmed on Thursday the 26-year-old is out for three months through injury.
Over the past five seasons, Spurs’ win percentage has dropped by nine per cent across the games where Kane has not featured, in almost all cases due to injury – and he faces potentially the longest spell on the sidelines of his career after suffering a ruptured tendon in their 1-0 defeat to Southampton on New Year’s Day.
England captain Kane will also be forced to sit out his country’s two Euro 2020 warm-up games with Italy and Denmark in March, but it’s Spurs who will suffer the biggest loss, facing five key games in their hunt for the top four – and the Champions League itself – without their star striker.
