After a robust challenge on England international Fabian Delph, Kane rolled over his left ankle which has troubled him for years.

Speaking to BT Sports after the win, Pochettino admitted his star man could well miss the rest of the campaign with possible ligament damage.

Assessing Kane’s injury, Pochettino said: “We need to check tomorrow but it looks the same, a similar issue.
