Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino says he is worried that Harry Kane was injured against Manchester United - and if he is "it is going to be massive for us".

Kane had to be helped from the pitch at Wembley after being hurt in a last-minute challenge as United won 1-0.

"It was a clear foul on Harry Kane, a big hit, [referee] Mike Dean said he didn't see it," Pochettino said.

"It was a bad tackle and now he has bit of a swelling on his ankle."

Kane - who had seven shots as Spurs failed to find a way past United goalkeeper David de Gea - had an ankle injury in 2018 and missed 10 games the season before with a similar injury to the same ankle.

Spurs midfielder Moussa Sissoko was also injured, being replaced before half-time.

"It wasn't the intention of the United player but it was a bad tackle and Kane was limping after the game," Pochettino added.

"We are going to lose Son Heung-min for the Asia Cup and if Kane suffers an injury, it is going to be massive for us. He twisted his ankle and we hope that it is not a big issue."
