This is a huge blow for Tottenham. After being hit in the ankle in the final moments of the game against Manchester United on Sunday in the Premier League (0-1), Harry Kane is expected to be away from the pitch for two months.
The Spurs medical staff confirmed on Tuesday evening that the attacker suffered from a ligament injury to his left ankle and that he could only resume training in early March. A lack of weight for Maurico Pochettino’s team.
Harry Kane, a decisive player
Since 2011, the Spurs centre-forward has scored 160 goals and 28 assists in 244 games. Stats that make him an indispensable element. This season, Kane is even the most decisive player in the Premier League, with 14 goals and 4 assists in 22 games. In the Champions League, the English international has scored four times in six matches.
Since Pochettino’s arrival in May 2014, the English striker has been in the starting line-up 151 times in 163 matches. In other words, the Argentinean technician is very dependent on him. And we can understand that. Since Kane joined the club in 2013, Tottenham has scored an average of twice per game when he is on the field. On the other hand, the ratio drops to 1.6 goals per game when he is not there.
However, Kane’s presence does not directly impact Tottenham’s results…..
