Liam Rosenior believes Tottenham need to buy new players this month considering their depleted squad in recent weeks.

Spurs have been dealt a double injury blow as Harry Kane and Dele Alli have both been ruled out until March. While Heung-Min Son is also away at the Asian Cup.

The North London side are without three of their most important players as they chase trophies on four fronts. And pundits think they need to strengthen to compete effectively.

Speaking on The Debate, former Fulham and Hull defender Rosenior said: “They have to bring someone in this month if they want to win a trophy or stay in the top-four race.

“Manchester United are coming up hot on the rails. Chelsea and Arsenal are going through difficult moments but they will be there, so Spurs need to bring someone in.”

Fernando Llorente was the only fit striker at the club as he was used in the club’s win over Fulham but ended up scoring at the wrong end.

Friedel: Spurs always knew Kane was a truly special talent

Former goalkeeper Brad Friedel revealed that Tottenham were always convinced of Harry Kane's potential, despite his low-key start.

However, Rosenoir said via Sky: “Tottenham’s squad says you have to stick with him. At the moment I don’t see any other option than sticking with Llorente and trying to get him on form.

“Just as worrying as that was their defensive performance against Fulham in the first half. Davinson Sanchez was out of sorts, Fulham could have scored three or four goals, and if you haven’t got your main goalscorer at one end you need to keep the back door shut.

“I think that will be a worry for Mauricio Pochettino going into the next game.”

Spurs will defend the first leg slender lead when they face Chelsea in the return leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final on Thursday.
