The news that the Tottenham fans in the Football Transfer Tavern were dreading…
The celebrations of the Tottenham faithful in the Tavern were marred on Sunday, as news began to emerge surrounding the details of an injury picked up by Harry Kane during the game.
Speculation began to run riot around the Tavern, with several rival fans suggesting that Kane could be set for a long-term injury lay off – giving Tottenham’s title rivals a huge boost ahead of a busy run of fixtures.
And whilst the Spurs faithful in attendance were trying to hold out hope; it would appear that their worst fears have come true.
According to the Daily Express, Harry Kane is set for a two-month injury lay-off as a result of the ankle injury – and is not expected to be back until late October at the earliest.
There were fears around White Hart Lane that Kane could have broken his ankle, which would have lead to an even longer period on the sidelines – but those fears appear to have been eased.
Whilst ankle-ligament damage was the preferred outcome; the news is far from ideal from the perspective of the Tottenham faithful in the Tavern this evening.
Spurs are set to undertake a tough run of fixtures, which includes league games, cup games and Champions League fixtures – meaning Kane’s lack of availability could prove vital for Mauricio Pochettino.
To make matters worse, an opening day Champions League defeat by the Lilywhites has put the pressure on Pochettino to turn things around; something that will be infinitely more difficult without Harry Kane on the pitch.
The news will also bring Harry Kane’s Premier League starts record to an end, with the English forward a constant in Pochettino’s team sheet for the best part of two seasons.
The Tottenham fans in the Football Transfer Tavern fear that this layoff could put an end to Spurs’ title challenge before it has even begun.
