Tottenham anxiously wait on Harry Kane injury update

However, Spurs manager Pochettino insisted it was too early to know the severity of the issue, which was sustained on the same ankle Kane has previously injured.

Without Kane, Tottenham still recovered from 1-0 down to win 4-1 and Pochettino was especially pleased with their response following the Champions League defeat against Juventus last Wednesday.

Kane couldn't continue after injuring his ankle in a collision with Bournemouth keeper Asmir Begovic shortly before Dele Alli cancelled out Junior Stanislas' opener for the Cherries.

Pochettino says that it is now a case of waiting for the England global to undergo a scan on Monday before finding out the extent of his latest layoff. "We need to manage him in the next week".

Tottenham tried to find their way back into the match and thought they had did just that on the half hour mark when Harry Kane found the back of the net, but his goal was not given because he was adjudged to have been in an off-side position.

And Son Heung-min's fine season continued as he scored twice in the final half-hour - his 11th and 12th league goals of the campaign - to secure the win for Spurs.

Pochettino added: "I don't believe that is a big issue for Alli".

The anxiety over Kane's condition, after an apparent injury to his right ankle, won't be limited to Tottenham.

Ankara said it might also extend its aggression further east to Manbij unless the PYD/PKK leaves the strategically located city. Rami Abel Rahman, head of the Britain-based Observatory, said the aim was to besiege Afrin, cutting it off from other areas.

"It was the ideal answer after the massive disappointment against Juventus", he said.

"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".

Tottenham can certainly finish second in the league this season.

Pochettino confirmed that Danny Rose was replaced with "fatigue and a knock" but said the left-back, who was at fault for Bournemouth's goal with Aurier, was not injured, while he said Alli was also worn out and would be monitored during the week.

"It's important they keep hold of their best players, but I think they're close to winning something".

The Spurs manager had sympathy with Bournemouth after Callum Wilson's equalising goal at 2-1 was ruled out for a push on Davinson Sanchez.

"I'm so happy for them, because we needed this, and so happy for the fans".
