Pochettino however was unconcerned by Kane’s early exit, though he did suggest he may miss Wednesday’s EFL Cup tie at home to West Ham, revealing to the Metro: “He was tired from the end. It was a massive effort at Bournemouth and today. It’s normal he’s a little tired. It will be no problem.

“Maybe yes [I will rest him on Wednesday]. We have game and then Manchester United and Real Madrid. It’s important to know he played two games with the national team before playing with Bournemouth. ‘Wednesday maybe he needs to rest.”
