Tottenhams' 4-1 win away to Bournemouth was overshadowed by an ankle injury that caused star striker Harry Kane to come off before the halftime break.


Tottenham and England striker Harry Kane limped out of Sunday's clash with Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium.

The Premier League's joint top-scorer appeared to twist his ankle under pressure from Asmir Begovic as he turned home Christian Eriksen's cross from an offside position.


After receiving treatment on the pitch for a few minutes, the 24-year-old trudged towards the dressing room and was replaced by Erik Lamela.


Tottenham made light work of his absence, cancelling out Junior Stanislas' early opener just a minute later through Dele Alli and going on to win the match 4-1 to climb above Liverpool to third in the standings.
