Kane scores twice as Tottenham beat AFC Wimbledon

Tottenham midfielder Harry Winks admits they can not underestimate FA Cup opponents AFC Wimbledon.

'I think Liverpool wanted to keep him but it is hard to keep him, and look what happened with Cristiano Ronaldo with Manchester (United), (Zinedine) Zidane with Juventus, (Luis) Figo with Barcelona. Then the player needs to choose to stay here.

LUKE SHAW could be forced to leave Manchester United in January if they bring in Tottenham left-back Danny Rose - but where could he go next?

"Liverpool is historically one of the best clubs in the world, but when a player like Coutinho wants to leave, it is hard".

"It was a hard game", Pochettino told the BBC.

The England global had not been expected to feature at Wembley, but he captained Spurs and scored two goals in the space of 111 seconds after the League One side had earlier hit the crossbar. And I think Harry is this type of player, but in football you can't be sure of anything.

'That's why it's important to work together and try to achieve all we want.

George Long in goal for AFC Wimbledon pulled off a succession of fine saves and when he was beaten in the 52nd minute by Mousa Dembele the post came to his rescue.

Kane was expected to be rested for the game but having been selected from the start by Pochettino, it was no great surprise that he was the man to make the difference. Kieran Trippier released Moussa Sissoko down the right and he pulled back for Kane to bundle home in the 63rd minute.

Two minutes later, Kane grabbed a second, showing his poacher's instinct to pounce on Kyle Walker-Peters' deflected effort and finished well to take him past Teddy Sheringham on 125 goals to become the club's ninth highest scorer.

Vertonghen wrapped up the win with the third strike for Tottenham in the 71st minute.

"This is a competition we'll like to go far in". That made me chuckle. Mauricio Pochettino made eight other changes, with Victor Wanyama starting his first game since August. "When I saw the team-sheet I thought it was a wind-up because I couldn't believe Kane was playing".
