Mauricio Pochettino praises Spurs' flawless answer to European woe

The absence of Kane had no immediate negative impact on Tottenham, who rallied from a goal down to win 4-1 at the Vitality Stadium. "I hope that's it's not a massive problem". He is a great player and if it is a serious injury we will miss him.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino confirmed to Sky Sports reporter Greg Whelan at half-time that the injury was "in his right ankle, possibly ligaments, similar to the injury sustained against Sunderland early last season".

"I think we need to wait, say nothing more than that, though it's true he twisted his ankle".

Losing Kane for any length of time would be bad, and it's true that Spurs don't play a league match again until traveling to Stamford Bridge on April 1, so if your'e going to have an injury, this is probably the time to have it.

Tottenham fans are now holding their collective breaths after Harry Kane was taken off injured during Spurs' tie against Bournemouth, following a collision with Cherries keeper Asmir Begovic. "But for me it's so important the squad, because with a greater squad, with everyone fighting for the same objective, you can achieve all that you want".

The win leaves Arsenal 10 points off Champions League qualification in sixth place in the standings, while Watford stay in 10th.

They were asked to help because they had "the necessary capability and expertise", the Metropolitan Police said on Friday. Calling it a "tragic situation", Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov said the Kremlin had no information about the incident.

Replays showed Kane - who had been chasing Mohamed Salah in the race for a third consecutive Golden Boot - rolled his ankle under challenge from Asmir Begovic, and would not return to the pitch.

England duo Danny Rose and Dele Alli were also forced off injured but Pochettino hopes the pair will be fit for Saturday's FA Cup quarter final clash with Swansea. It's a club with a culture to do everything to try to help the team.

Former Liverpool FC defender Lawrenson believes Bournemouth could pay the price for Tottenham's Champions League exit mid-week. Serge Aurier then headed in a fourth in stoppage time.

Watford could have got back into the game at 2-0, but Troy Deeney saw his penalty saved by Petr Cech.

"It's an unbelievable personal milestone obviously", Cech said. "Of course disappointed with his problem, but if you are positive you start the recovery from the injury from now".
