LONDON (Reuters) - Tottenham Hotspur could face a striker crisis after leading scorer Harry Kane was injured during stoppage time in their damaging 1-0 defeat at home by Manchester United on Sunday.

“We are going to lose Son for the Asia Cup and if Harry Kane suffers an injury, it is going to be massive for us.” Tottenham also lost midfield powerhouse Moussa Sissoko to a groin injury before halftime, adding to their woes.



My worry is that it was a bad tackle in the last moment.



Defeat left Spurs nine points behind Premier League leaders Liverpool and they will be five behind Manchester City if the champions win against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday.

“It was a clear foul on Harry Kane, a big hit, (referee) Mike Dean said he didn’t see it,” Pochettino said of Jones’ challenge.

With the in-form South Korean Son Heung-min playing his last match before heading off to the Asia Cup, the last thing Pochettino needed was the sight of Kane hobbling off the pitch after being clattered by United’s Phil Jones late on.

“It wasn’t the intention of the United player but it was a bad tackle and now he has bit of a swelling on his ankle and he was limping after the game.
