Mauricio Pochettino allayed fears that Harry Kane had picked up an injury during Tottenham Hotspur’s win over Liverpool on Sunday but said he was likely to give the “tired” England striker a rest in midweek.

Kane finally broke his Wembley duck in the Premier League with a double as Spurs eased to a 4-1 victory over Jurgen Klopp’s side but appeared to limp off late in the match when being substituted.

However, while saying there was no early sign of injury, Pochettino reckoned Kane was suffering from fatigue, which may persuade him to rest his prolific striker for the League Cup derby with West Ham United on Wednesday.

“Harry put in another amazing display, he is amazing, one of the best in the word,” Pochettino said. “Injury? No, he was tired at the end. He has put in a massive effort — Bournemouth, Real Madrid and today. No problem.

“We may rest Harry in the week, we have many games. Man United, then Real Madrid and Palace. Don’t forget he also played two games for the national team. He is so professional, but he is not a machine and maybe Wednesday he has to rest.”
