Trevor Sinclair believes Tottenham will struggle in their attempts to win the FA Cup this season following the injury to star striker Harry Kane.
Kane, 23, left White Hart Lane on crutches after a robust tackle from Millwall defender Jake Cooper forced him off the field with an ankle injury during Sunday’s 6-0 quarter-final win.
Despite reaching the semi-finals, Sinclair gave his thoughts on his personal Twitter account when a fan suggested a navy and white ribbon would be on the FA Cup come May.
Replying to a fan, the former England international claimed that he cannot see Spurs winning the tournament “without HK” as Spurs anxiously wait to hear the extent of the injury.
Navy, with some white! 👌🏻 #COYS

Spurs have been drawn away to London rivals Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the last four of the competition, while Arsenal play host to Manchester City.
One bit of good news for Tottenham fans is that Sinclair rules out bitter rivals Arsenal winning too, saying there will be ‘blue ribbons’ of some shade on the FA Cup trophy.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side secured their place in the last four with a huge win over League One outfit Millwall, thanks to a Son Heung-min hat-trick and goals from Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen and Vincent Janssen.
Spurs are worried that the injury to their number 10 could be a similar problem to the issue that forced Kane to miss almost two months of action between September and November.
The Spurs academy product has been in exceptional goalscoring form for the north London giants this term, scoring 24 goals in 29 league and cup outings.
