Mauricio Pochettino worried about Harry Kane injury
Tottenham will nervously wait to find out how far the ankle injury of Harry Kane is, with boss Mauricio Pochettino admitting that he is "worried".
Kane suffered the problem during the Tottenham 1-0 defeat against Manchester United in Wembley on Sunday when he was treated at the end of the game and walked away extremely cautiously.
The England captain was injured after he was caught in the middle of Phil Jones and Victor Lindelof.
He has suffered a single problem and it is no surprise that Pochettino is worried about Kane's loss of similar injuries in each of the last two seasons.
Midfielder Moussa Sissoko also was injured on a noxious afternoon for Spurs, whose title ambitions all – but died.
"I think I'm worried because we'll see what happens to Harry Kane," said Pochettino.

"I think Moussa is only a small thing, but we'll see that we have to judge Harry Kane.
"In the end, I think he had a big tackle and twisted his ankle and that we have to judge him the next few days, in the hope that it is not a big problem."
A lengthy absence for Kane would leave Spurs for offensive options for an important part of the season, with Son Heung-min away on international duty, Lucas Moura was still injured and Fernando Llorente and Vincent Janssen expected to leave the club this month.
Kane did not come full-time through the mixed zone because he was selected for a doping test after the game, so it was unclear how heavy he was walking or whether he needed a footrest or needed crutches.
Sissoko's injury for the first half was another blow for Spurs, as they suffered less than two minutes after being tagged away.
It looked like a hamstring problem that the Frenchman tried to play through, but it was actually a groin injury.
"No, it was groin, a little thing in his crotch, let's hope it's not a big problem either," added Pochettino.
