Lord Sugar reacts to Tottenham Hotspur win against Bournemouth

Tottenham Hotspur forward Harry Kane picked up an ankle problem during his team's clash with Bournemouth.

However, the victory was overshadowed by an injury to Kane as the striker limped off midway through the first half after twisting his ankle while scoring an offside goal.

"I am concerned. Until tomorrow or after tomorrow he make the scan we can not say nothing more", said Pochettino.

Son Heung-Min ensured an ankle injury suffered by Harry Kane didn't cost Tottenham Hotspur a heavy price as he scored twice in a win 4-1 at Bournemouth Sunday.

Mauricio Pochettino's side made a sluggish start and went behind after just seven minutes when Junior Stanislas fired the Cherries in front.

In the 34th minute of Tottenham's tricky away game at the Vitality Stadium, Kane collided with the Bournemouth number one in the penalty area; seemingly rolling his ankle in the process.

In the 62 minute, Tottenham did take the lead when Dele Alli sent a precise lofted cross into the box which Heung-Min Son controlled with superb skill before firing past the keeper from just inside the box, 2-1. We concede the first goal, but I think the team was better than Bournemouth, and the attitude was great.

Tottenham travel to Swansea for an FA Cup quarter-final next Saturday, but their next Premier League game is not until April 1 when they face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

A prolonged absence for Kane, who is the Premier League's joint top scorer with Liverpool's Mohamed Salah on 24 goals this season, would put a major dent in Tottenham's hopes of a top-four finish and Champions League qualification.

However, having breezed through the opening half-hour, Spurs appeared to be galvanized by the loss of its talisman and struck nearly immediately when Alli volleyed in at the far post.

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.

And Aurier pounced when Begovic could only parry Kieran Trippier's cross in stoppage time to round off a fine fightback by the visitors.

Bournemouth remains six points clear of the relegation zone with 33 points.
