Son shines but Kane suffers injury for Spurs
TOTTENHAM moved up to third in the Premier League with a 4-1 victory against Bournemouth but the victory came at a cost with three England internationals going off injured at Dean Court.
Dele Alli and Danny Rose were substituted but the biggest issue could well be Harry Kane, whose match ended in the first half with an ankle problem.
Heung-Min Son moved from the left wing to replace Kane as the striker and showed he is an able deputy with two goals. Alli and Serge Aurier also notched to come from behind to beat Bournemouth, who led early through Junior Stainslas’s opener.
Kane, level on 24 goals with Mohamed Salah, drifted to 3.65 on Betfair’s exchange to retain the Golden Boot with the Egyptian at 1.83.
Most bookmakers were waiting for news on Kane’s injury before updating their top goalscorer markets and Tottenham and England fans will be hoping it is not a long-term setback.
Spurs are five points clear of fifth-placed Chelsea and can be backed at 1-6 with bet365 to finish in the top four, while the champions are at 2-1. Arsenal beat Watford 3-0.
