Kane injury leaves Pochettino 'concerned'


The goal was ruled out for offside and Kane was helped from the pitch in clear discomfort, and Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino says there is no indication yet of exactly how long the Premier League top-scorer and two-time Golden Boot victor will be out of action for. Initially Harry considered trying to run it off, but after consulting with the Spurs physio eventually walked down the tunnel.

While the Spurs had a double whammy of injuries, it didn't seem to affect the rest of the team as they beat Bournemouth 4-1, with Heung-min Son netting a brace, while Dele Alli and Serge Aurier also got on the score-sheet.

But the Argentine has eased any fears about Dele Alli and Danny Rose, who, like Kane, were substituted during the match due to injury.

"But if you're positive you start the recovery from injury from now".

We don't know any more than that, but that hasn't stopped England fans suddenly start panicking about if it might keep him out of the World Cup. "I don't believe he will be a big problem". I don't believe he will be a big problem.

"But I think it is good news because, for us, that we don't play Premier League at the weekend because we're still in the FA Cup, we are still alive in a different competition".

The result marks a return to winning ways for Tottenham after their Champions League exit to Juventus in midweek and moves them ahead of Liverpool into third, four points behind Manchester United.

"The Cherries were denied victory by Riyad Mahrez's 97th-minute equaliser for Leicester last week but I don't think they will find themselves in a similar position this time around".

Referee Mike Dean blew for a free-kick after spotting a slight push by striker Wilson on Spurs defender Davinson Sanchez, although replays suggested the decision was harsh.

Home boss Eddie Howe replaced Mousset and Daniels with Josh King and Jordon Ibe as he looked for a way back into the game, and Francis tried his luck with another long-range strike only to see it fly over.

He added: "Physically it was very intense for both sets of players".

"It was so hard for me to see from my position, you need to trust the referee, sometimes it is for you and sometimes against you", he said. We were well in that right to the end.

He volleyed in Alli's cross at the back post in the 62nd, before displaying his composure by rounding Begovic to seal three points in the 87th.
