Gary Lineker reacts on Twitter to Tottenham draw against Bournemouth
By Tony Hughes
Gary Lineker bemoaned the absence of Harry Kane on Twitter following Tottenham’s 0-0 draw against Bournemouth on Saturday.
Spurs failed to score for the second consecutive match after following up their stalemate at Bayer Leverkusen in midweek with another goalless draw at the Vitality Stadium.
Mauricio Pochettino shook up his front line by omitting Vincent Janssen from the starting XI that failed to find the net in Germany.
But Tottenham were once again toothless, even though Mousa Dembele was recalled into the team and Son Heung-Min, who was the Premier League player of the month for September, led the front line.
Match of the Day host Lineker claimed on his personal Twitter account in the immediate aftermath of the game that the injured Kane cannot come back quickly enough.

Kane has been sidelined with an ankle injury since breaking down in the 1-0 win over Sunderland on 18 September.
The striker has missed Spurs’ last seven matches and his absence has been keenly felt since the international break, with the side scoring just once in the last three encounters.
