Tottenham Hotspur suffered more than a defeat at the hands of Manchester United last Sunday, as talisman Harry Kane was ruled out until March with an ankle injury.

Tottenham, who lost to Manchester United at the weekend, will be aiming to return to winning ways when they take the trip across the capital to face Fulham at Craven Cottage this weekend.

A statement from Spurs reads: "Following preliminary assessments, we can confirm that Harry Kane has damaged ligaments in his left ankle, sustained during Sunday's match". The English national has a history of ankle problems, having been sidelined seven weeks in 2016.

The 25-year-old is Tottenham's top scorer this season with 20 goals in 31 appearances in all competitions.

And Pochettino's fears have now been realised, as Kane appears set to miss a significant amount of the rest of the season.

The club are also without Son Heung-min for the next five games following his involvement in the Asian Cup meaning Spurs could search for a replacement striker in January but Pochettino admits they may struggle to find their man. However, with Spurs 1-0 up from the first leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final, his absence this time is particularly untimely, and he is likely to miss at least 11 games while he undertakes his rehabilitation. Four Premier League matches and a fourth-round FA Cup tilt with Crystal Palace are also upcoming.

The two-time Premier League Golden Boot Winner winner now sits in a three-way tie for the league's scoring lead with 14 goals in 22 matches and has found the back of the net 20 times in all competitions this season.
