Mauricio Pochettino has revealed Harry Kane has not suffered a major injury despite him being substituted towards the end of Tottenham’s victory over Liverpool.

Kane, the England forward, netted two goals and grabbed an assist in Spurs’ 4-1 defeat of the Reds, but the sight of him limping off two minutes from time, holding the back of his thigh, will have worried fans of the north London club.

While an extended absence for Kane will not be as problematic for Spurs as it was last season – considering back-up option Vincent Janssen has been replaced by Fernando Llorente – losing a striker of Kane’s ability would weaken any team in world football.

But Pochettino spoke after the game to confirm Kane has not suffered a serious injury, admitting the 24-year-old was withdrawn simply because he was feeling tired.

When asked whether Kane’s problem was a major one, Pochettino told talkSPORT: “No, no. He was tired, but it’s normal. For the last three games he’s been amazing, and it’s nothing serious.”

This was the most convincing Premier League display Spurs have put in since their move to Wembley, the north Londoner’s temporary home while White Hart Lane is redeveloped.

They are now level on points with second placed Manchester United, ahead of next weekend’s trip to Old Trafford, are no doubts remain about Spurs struggling due to the Wembley hoodoo that surrounded the Lilywhites at the start of the campaign.

“I think it [the performance] was very good,” Pochettino continued. “Wembley is starting to feel like home, which is so important for us.

“I’m so happy because I think the performance was very good. I’m very happy for the players because I think the collective effort was fantastic.”
