Kane out for four to six weeks with an injury

Kane out for four to six weeks with an injury

As soon as Tottenham's season started looking better with a string of results Jose Mourinho has made, the expectations drop lower. Not only did the Spurs record only one win in the last four matches, now they've been hit with an injury of their best player Harry Kane.

English media are reporting that the striker will be out for four to six weeks after injuring his hamstring. Jose Mourinho isn't certain what kind of challenge is the Englishman facing.

"Hamstring is always a negative. Is it tear? Is it a spasm? Is it a contraction? In this moment I cannot say," said Mourinho.

Spurs will be busy in January and the first part of February and Mourinho will probably face seven opponents without his primary striker.

Duels against Liverpool and Manchester City are coming, and the Spurs might miss their main man even for the first leg of the Champions League first knockout round against RB Leipzig in London. Luckily for them, the second leg is played on the 10th of March and Kane should be ready by then if he's allowed to rest properly.

But Kane's injury once again raises questions of Tottenham's squad depth, as there are no alternatives for Mourinho to rely on. Fernando Llorente was one such, as the powerful striker enable a tactic switch if needed, a useful one at that, as Ajax players could testify. But the Spaniard was allowed to leave on a free.

Spurs haven't brought in any replacements and Kane has played in 20 out of 21 Premier League games this season.

17-year-old Troy Parrott is the only proper attacking option, but Mourinho will most likely have to utilize Son Heung-Min or Lucas Moura in the forward centre position. Limiting his manoeuvrability on the wings.

Spurs stated that they will not enter the January transfer window, but if there's a team that oughts to, it's them.
