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.

Tottenham and England striker Harry Kane limped out of Sunday's clash with Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium.

Kane came off before half-time after appearing to hurt his ankle in a collision with home keeper Asmir Begovic, but Spurs shrugged off that setback to win comfortably.

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.

"We need to wait because we will scan his ankle".

While Tottenham's win keeps it in a strong position for now, it will desperately hope that Kane is fit to return for its next league game, against Chelsea in three weeks' time.

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. "We hope and wish it is not a big issue". He is happy with the victory of the team.

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

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.

"I think he is having a fantastic season, the best season since he arrived".

Alli equalized with a composed volley at the back post shortly after Kane went off, but it was Son who won the match.

Bournemouth, who remain 12th, though they had rescued a point via Callum Wilson's 84th-minute strike but referee Mike Dean disallowed it for a shove on Spurs defender Davinson Sanchez, before the visitors scored their two late goals.

"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.
