Tottenham forward Harry Kane was forced off with an injury during a Premier League match with Bournemouth on Sunday. I hope it is not a massive problem. He is a great player and if it is a serious injury we will miss him.

The anxiety over Kane's condition, after an apparent injury to his right ankle, won't be limited to Tottenham.

"I think we need to wait, say nothing more than that, though it's true he twisted his ankle". "But for me it's so important the squad, because with a greater squad, with everyone fighting for the same objective, you can achieve all that you want".

The enforced departure of their talisman sparked Spurs into life, though, and they pulled level a minute later when Alli diverted Aurier's teasing cross past Begovic with his thigh for his first Premier League goal since January 2.

The result boosts the White Hart Lane outfit's chances of getting a Champions League spot next season, putting them into third and five points clear of Chelsea in fifth.

The 24-year-old England worldwide has been in astonishing form this season, scoring an incredible 35 goals in 38 appearances in all competitions; with 24 of his goals coming in the English Premier League.

Tottenham and England will check on the fitness of Alli, who needed treatment for an injury before being replaced late on, as did left-back Danny Rose, who was making his first top-flight appearance of the year.

Despite the victory, Arsenal is 12 points adrift of fourth place and Arsene Wenger's team selection suggested his attention is now firmly focused on the Gunners's Europa League campaign.

Tottenham failed to take note of that warning as within three minutes Stanislas had made amends for his miss with a well-taken strike past Lloris from an Adam Smith cross that gave the Cherries the lead.

Former Liverpool FC defender Lawrenson believes Bournemouth could pay the price for Tottenham's Champions League exit mid-week.

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

"It is an unbelievable personal milestone", said Cech who had waited since December for a shutout.
