Spurs Confirm Harry Kane Injury

Harry Kane

Tottenham Hotspur overcame a worrying injury to talismanic striker Harry Kane to beat mid-table Bournemouth 4-1 with a Son Heung-min double and goals from Dele Alli and Serge Aurier to move up to third in the Premier League. "I hope that's it's not a massive problem".

Pochettino said: "We played fantastic football".

Kane's two ankle injuries last season, in September and then March, saw him respectively ruled out for around seven and then four weeks.

"We are concerned because still we can't know what will happen to him", Pochettino told reporters.

If Kane is sidelined for a fortnight or more, Son is likely to lead the line in next week's FA Cup quarterfinal at Swansea and when Spurs return to Premier League action at Chelsea on April 1. But for me the whole team and the whole squad too.

Sixth-placed Arsenal were also comfortable 3-0 winners over Watford at the Emirates Stadium to snap a run of three straight Premier League defeats.

Kane went off after 30 minutes after colliding with Bournemouth keeper Asmir Begovic and badly twisting his ankle. Eight rounds remain in the race for the four Champions League spots.

Kane's global team-mate Dele Alli also seemed to pick up an injury on the south coast, suffering a problem with his groin.

"Everyone had got really carried away with Spurs' performance in the first leg but Juve do not have any bad days and they were far too good a team to be written off".

The 24-year-old England global has been in astonishing form this season, scoring an incredible 35 goals in 38 appearances in all competitions; with 24 of his goals coming in the English Premier League.

"He is one of the best players in the world", said Spurs attacker Heung-Min Son, who scored twice against Bournemouth.

And Aurier pounced when Begovic could only parry Kieran Trippier's cross in stoppage time to round off a fine fightback by the visitors.

"It's an unbelievable personal milestone obviously", Cech said.

Aurier then added gloss to the scoreline in injury-time, taking advantage of some poor goalkeeping from Begovic to head in at the back post.
