Tottenham Hotspur manager hits back at FA Cup claims

Pochettino pointed to Philippe Coutinho's move to Barcelona, as an example of the lure of Spain's top clubs.

"But we need to be careful and clear in how we manage him".

Kane would not be the first player Tottenham have sold to Madrid in recent seasons with Gareth Bale breaking the then-transfer record to sign the Welshman in the summer of 2013.

As a team, Wimbledon have only scored 24 goals, with Harry Kane netting just six less in the Premier League having played three fewer games.

Asked specifically about Kane, Pochettino said: 'I think Harry is special, so special, because he loves Tottenham and he feels Tottenham. You can not force everyone to stay here.

"That is why it is so important to work together and try to achieve all that you want".

FA Cup aside, one thing Spurs know they have to do is bring Champions League football back to the club next season when they're in their new stadium, and while their league form has been hit and miss this season, one thing that has been brilliant is their Champions League form, with the club topping their group - despite being paired with Real Madrid.

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 beat both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo to claim the highest goalscoring tally of a year ago - 56 in total - and has attracted the attention of Zinedine Zidane, who will look to replace Karim Benzema at the end of the season. Kane bundled the ball home after a Sissoko ball into the box.

He doubled the lead in the 66th minute, firing in Kyle Walker-Peters deflected shot into the net from that range. We hope to get a home draw. That made me chuckle. "When I saw the team-sheet I thought it was a wind-up because I couldn't believe Kane was playing".
