Harry Kane is yet to undergo a scan on his ankle after limping off during Tottenham’s win at Bournemouth on Sunday, according to the Guardian.

The striker was forced off midway through the first half following a collision with Bournemouth goalkeeper Asmir Begovic.

Spurs were 1-0 down at the time, but they came back to win 4-1 thanks to a Son Heung-min double and goals from Dele Alli and Serge Aurier.

The result was marred by Kane’s injury, although Mauricio Pochettino will have been delighted to see his side move up to third in the Premier League without their top scorer.

The Guardian reports Kane’s ankle is still too swollen to be scanned, and so Tottenham and England face an anxious wait to discover the extent of the damage.

Other reports suggest Erik Lamela, who replaced Kane at Bournemouth, will once again deputise in attack when Spurs travel to Swansea in the FA Cup this weekend.

The Argentinian is likely to play in a number 10 role behind Son, who has scored seven goals in his last four appearances.
