Spurs shrug off Kane injury, Arsenal silence Watford's Deeney

Zinedine Zidane GETTY Zinedine Zidane wants to make Harry Kane his top signing

"Harry Kane is really, really important for us".

Spurs got the better of Bournemouth 4-1 away from home at the Vitality Stadium in the Premier League on Sunday evening.

Kane couldn't continue after injuring his ankle in a collision with Bournemouth keeper Asmir Begovic shortly before Dele Alli cancelled out Junior Stanislas' opener for the Cherries.

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.

"I think we need to wait, say nothing more than that, though it's true he twisted his ankle. You need 24 or 25 players with the same objective - to fight for the team and help the team when the gaffer calls on them".

Dele Alli soon equalised and Son Heung-Min, who moved up-front, scored twice in the second half before Serge Aurier's first goal for the club added gloss to a victory which Spurs moved above Liverpool and into third place. "I don't believe he will be a big problem".

Of course he suffered an injury that is in the same ankle as he suffered before.


Mark Lawrenson is tipping Tottenham Hotspur to ease to a commanding win over Bournemouth on Sunday to make amends for their disappointing Champions League exit.

Losing Kane for any length of time would be bad, and it's true that Spurs don't play a league match again until traveling to Stamford Bridge on April 1, so if your'e going to have an injury, this is probably the time to have it.

Ten minutes into the second half, Tottenham nearly took the lead when Christian Eriksen unleashed a powerful long-range shot which looked destined for the bottom corner, but Asmir Begovic produced a fantastic fingertip save to deny him.

The injury will also be a worry for England, with Kane expected to lead the line for Gareth Southgate's side at this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation.

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe felt the scoreline flattered Spurs and was unhappy that Callum Wilson had an 84th-minute goal disallowed at 2-1.

"I'm so happy for them, because we needed this, and so happy for the fans".
