London - Tottenham
manager Mauricio Pochettino says he fears a "massive problem" after
Harry Kane limped off the Wembley pitch with an apparent ankle problem
following his side's 1-0 defeat to Manchester United.
Kane was hurt after clashing with United defender Phil Jones in the
closing seconds of the match as the visitors dug deep to protect their
1-0 lead at Wembley on Sunday.
Pochettino said he would fret over Kane's fitness, with the
25-year-old set to undergo tests in the next few days while he is set to
lose Son Heung-min to the Asian Cup.
"Of course if Harry Kane suffers an injury it would be a massive
problem for us. That is my worry, that is our worry," Pochettino told
"It was a bad tackle in the last moment from a Manchester United player. It wasn't an intention, but it was a bad tackle.
"There's swelling now, we need to assess in the next few days. I hope it's not a big issue but he was limping off the pitch."
Pochettino hailed Tottenham's second-half performance as among the
best in his tenure at the north London club, despite Marcus Rashford's
first-half winner leaving them nine points adrift of Premier League
"In four-and-a-half years, that's the best performance I saw
Tottenham play," Pochettino told reporters.
"The second half is one of
the best performances I've seen from my team. I thought it was amazing."
