Harry Kane will miss Tottenham’s Sky Live clash away to Manchester United on Saturday after failing to recover from a hamstring injury, Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed.
The England striker underwent an assessment earlier this week on the injury which he suffered during Spurs’ 4-1 Premier League win over Liverpool last Sunday and it was confirmed he has a minor strain to his left hamstring.
Pochettino confirmed Kane’s injury is not considered serious and he could be fit in time face Real Madrid in the Champions League at Wembley on Wednesday.
When asked about Kane’s availability, the Spurs boss told reporters: “No, for tomorrow we cannot take a risk. It’s a minor injury, very small, but we cannot take a risk for tomorrow.
