Mauricio Pochettino admits he is extremely worried about Harry Kane's condition after the striker in the last few seconds of the Tottenham Hotspur defeat by Manchester United got a hit.
Spurs pined on a chase after a tie in the injury time during the 1-0 Premier League-defeat in Wembley, with Kane desperate to beat Victor Lindelof and Phil Jones with a loose ball.
But instead, the striker got worse in a challenge that kept his knee in the aftermath.

Mauricio Pochettino admits that the club must play a guard game before discovering the full extent of the damage.
A spell on the sidelines would cause severe headaches for the Spurs boss who is already without Lucas Moura and now Son Heung-min will lose international obligations with South Korea.

"That's our concern", said Pochettino against Sky Sports. & # 39; It was a bad tackle at the last minute of Manchester United. It was not the intention, but it was a bad tackle, something we should assess in the next few days.
& # 39; He limped after the game. It is worrying because we are going to lose the son who is going to the Asian Cup. If Harry Kane has a problem, it will be a big problem for us. & # 39;
Now that Moussa Sissoko is already injured by Wembley to join Eric Dier and Victor Wanyama on the sidelines, the Spurs selection crisis comes because they have a busy end to the month.
Pochettino's side-face four games for January is including a crucial Carabao Cup semi-final at Chelsea a week on Thursday.
