Tottenham Hotspur are facing the possibility of a Champions League and top four fight without the services of club Talisman Harry Kane, but Sam Allardyce believes the striker’s injury does not spell doom for the White Lily’s.
“It is a blow for them, but they coped last time,” former England boss Allardyce told talkSPORT.
“They didn’t lose a game last time Kane was out.
“It’s a big loss for them but they can take some comfort from the last time Harry was out for five or six games.”
Harry Kane may be unavailable, but Big Sam has faith Heung-min Son will come good in the absence of the England international.
“That man Son seems to come up and play even better when Harry’s not there,” Allardyce added.
“His goal yesterday was exceptionally good.”
Harry Kane on the hand, speaking for the first time since his injury, wrote on his Instagram:
“Gutted to go off injured but every setback is a chance to come back stronger than ever.
“Bit finish from the boys to go on and win.”
Kane is however expected to undergo a scan on Thursday with the club, as Mauricio Pochettino and the spurs faithful keep their fingers crossed in hope the striker returns before the season’s fight is over or lost.
