Harry Kane, the Premier League's joint top scorer, will have a scan to determine the severity of an ankle injury sustained in Tottenham's 4-1 victory at Bournemouth on Sunday, with manager Mauricio Pochettino admitting he is concerned by the injury.

Mauricio Pochettino's day then got a whole lot worse after Harry Kane suffered a knock to his ankle thanks to home keeper Asmir Begovic.

Spurs were 1-0 down at that point, following Junior Stanislas' early opener, but a Dele Alli goal, Heung-min Son's brace and Serge Aurier's late strike turned the game in their favour as they bounced back from their midweek Champions League exit to move above Liverpool in the battle for a top-four finish.

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.

Pochettino said he is concerned by Kane's injury - a similar one kept him out for almost two months last season - but praised his side's character in fighting back. Tottenham is now five points ahead of fifth place Chelsea.

"We hope it's not a massive issue for him and hope he is available for the team as soon as possible".

Foreign Minister said that Russian Federation is ready to assist Britain in investigating the case of Skripal poisoning. On Thursday, the Home Secretary revealed a police officer who rushed to help is awake and talking in hospital.

Kane has netted 35 goals in all competitions for Spurs this season and was expected to play a part in England's upcoming friendlies against the Netherlands and Italy.

The Three Lions face Tunisia in Volgograd on Monday, 18 June in their opening fixture in Russian Federation.

South Korea forward Son now has seven goals in his last four games in all competitions and his fine form has been a major factor in Spurs' 12-game Premier League unbeaten run.

Alli equalized with a composed volley at the back post shortly after Kane went off, but it was Son who won the match. "Of course disappointed with his problem, but if you are positive you start the recovery from the injury from now".

Serge Aurier also scored for Spurs, a stoppage time rebound from Kieran Trippier's cross. "A winning mentality is the most important".
