Spurs rally to beat Bournemouth but Kane suffers injury

Harry Kane, the Premier League's joint top scorer, will have a scan to determine the severity of an ankle injury sustained in Tottenham's 4-1 victory at Bournemouth on Sunday, with manager Mauricio Pochettino admitting he is concerned by the injury.

Kane rolled the same ankle that he's injured twice before while scoring an offside goal and colliding with Bournemouth keeper Asmir Begovic.

"Of course I worry about him, his ankle, we hope it's not a massive issue for him and the team, and as soon as possible can recover again and be available".

Ten minutes into the second half, Tottenham nearly took the lead when Christian Eriksen unleashed a powerful long-range shot which looked destined for the bottom corner, but Asmir Begovic produced a fantastic fingertip save to deny him.

Spurs didn't wallow for long, though, as just a minute after Erik Lamela replaced Kane, they levelled when Dele Alli steered home Serge Aurier's excellent cross.

Despite the victory, Arsenal is 12 points adrift of fourth place and Arsene Wenger's team selection suggested his attention is now firmly focused on the Gunners's Europa League campaign.

Bournemouth started positively and nearly took the lead in the fourth minute when Junior Stanislas broke through on goal and rounded the keeper, but he saw his effort come back off the post.

Pochettino confirmed the injury is to the same ankle that kept Kane out for two months earlier in the season but they are hoping the problem won't be as serious this time around.

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

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

The former Burnley striker made amends for that miss just three minutes later, however, controlling Adam Smith's deep cross at the back post and drilling an unerring half-volley past Tottenham's French goalkeeper for his third goal in his last six Premier League appearances.

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.
