Published Add your comment

After a poor performance with the England national team during their disastrous campaign in France, followed by a slow start to the Premier League, finally Tottenham Hotspur forward Harry Kane seemed to be finding his eye for goal again, after scoring in back-to-back games against Stoke City and Sunderland respectively.

Kane scored the only goal of the game at the weekend against David Moyes' men, and earned his side three crucial points, which saw them move up to third in the league.

However, it was not all good news for Kane and Spurs during their 1-0 victory at home against Sunderland on Sunday.

After finally managing to break down Sunderland’s resilient defence, close to the hour mark with their 22nd attempt on goal, main marksman Kane was forced to withdraw from the game on a stretcher after injuring his ankle going in for tackle with only three minutes to go.

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino has now revealed that the club have no time frame for when Kane shall return, noting that the England striker had damaged ligaments in his ankle.

The news will be a big blow to the rest of the Tottenham squad and their fans.

Of course, in this day and age, Twitter has been quick to react to Pochettino's announcement, and it's clear to see Spurs fans are already dreading the thought of being without last season's top goalscorer.

However, that has made for some amusing tweets for neutral fans, so here are a select few.

Kane, 23, has been Spurs’ top scorer and was named in the PFA Team of the Year for the last two seasons. The news could also potentially mean that the England striker misses out on World Cup qualifying games against Malta and Slovenia in October.

One thing is for sure, Spurs and England fans will be hoping the six foot two striker’s return is sooner rather than later.
