Tottenham player ratings in 4-1 win: Son's brace leads the way

  • Harry Kane academy boy Sandro banter

The 24-year-old, who has scored 24 league goals this season and is expected to lead England's attack in the World Cup in June, was hurt in a heavy clash with keeper Asmir Begovic that led to his right ankle buckling under the strain.

With AP Photos.Tottenham overcame an injury scare for Harry Kane to keep its Premier League top-four hopes on track with a 4-1 victory at Bournemouth.

It was Pochettino's 150th league win but it was a rare defeat for his counterpart Howe, whose side had been beaten just one in their past 10 league fixtures - only Tottenham lost fewer games in that period.

"We need to wait until tomorrow because we need to make a scan of his ankle", replied Pochettino when asked about the condition of the Premier League's joint leading goalscorer.

Spurs moved into third, a point above Liverpool, and five points clear of fifth-place Chelsea. "We hope it is not a massive issue for him and the team and hope he can recover as soon as possible and be available".

Tottenham are still in the FA Cup but Spurs will have to get past Swansea City in the FA Cup quarter-finals as Mauricio Pochettino looks to win his first piece of silverware at White Hart Lane.


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.

Dele Alli also came off late in the game with a knock but Pochettino said: "I don't believe it's a big issue".

While the severity of Kane's injury is not yet known, it will surely put his participation in England's upcoming global fixtures in serious jeopardy.

That was until the stroke of the hour mark, when Son, who was adamant he should have been awarded a penalty a few minutes earlier, scuffed his volleyed effort into the back of Begovic's goal to give Spurs the lead for the first time of the afternoon and secure his 17th of the campaign.

Serge Aurier then headed in a fourth in stoppage time. "If you're positive you start the injury return from today".
