Pochettino said he is concerned by Kane's injury - a similar one kept him out for almost two months last season - but praised his side's character in fighting back. Of all the men that Pochettino could lose, none will be more sorely missed that Harry hot Spur.

"He felt that when he ran and twisted his ankle that it was impossible to stay on the pitch".

Son Heung-min's first-half finish put Spurs in the ascendency going into the break against the Old Lady, but the north London club could not hold firm as Juventus scored twice inside three second-half minutes to win 4-3 on aggregate.

England duo Danny Rose and Dele Alli were also forced off injured but Pochettino hopes the pair will be fit for Saturday's FA Cup quarter final clash with Swansea.

Aurier then added gloss to the scoreline in injury-time, taking advantage of some poor goalkeeping from Begovic to head in at the back post. "I hope that's it's not a massive problem". "We need to wait until tomorrow".

Tottenham are in fourth place in the Premier League table and five points clear of Chelsea FC, who lead the chasing pack.

"It was the flawless answer after the massive disappointment against Juventus", he said. "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".

Referee Mike Dean blew for a free-kick after spotting a slight push by striker Wilson on Spurs defender Davinson Sanchez, although replays suggested the decision was harsh.

Howe said: "The only part I was disappointed with was the end of the game".

"If there was any contact, it was minimal and at 2-1 down that has a huge bearing on the result".

"It was so hard for me to see from my position, you need to trust the referee, sometimes it is for you and sometimes against you", he said.

"But the scoreline definitely is an untrue reflection on how the game went".

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.
