Hamstring injury rules Spurs hotshot Harry Kane out of Old Trafford clash

28 October 2017

And their task is made all the more hard by the absence of top scorer Harry Kane, who joins midfield duo Erik Lamela and Victor Wanyama on the sidelines.

Tottenham have confirmed that their top scorer, Harry Kane, will miss the club's Premier League match against Manchester United due to a hamstring strain.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola recently labelled Tottenham as "the Harry Kane team" but Pochettino pointed to last term, when Spurs coped without Kane as he nursed an ankle injury, as proof they can be successful without their talisman. "We'll see after about Real Madrid [on Wednesday], but for tomorrow it's impossible".

"It is not a big problem, only a small issue, but he is not going to play (on Saturday)".

"We always believe in the collective, the squad".

"The players are not machines and it is so hard to cope with worldwide duty and playing every three days", he added. It's lucky because it's not a big problem, it's only a small issue, but he's not going to play tomorrow.

"We've got to concentrate on what we've got to do - and that's to win the game".

"Like I told you before, we are waiting for him to say 'gaffer, doctor, I am ready to compete.'" Pochettino said in his press conference. It's not a problem because we can use one or another, with different formations. We have Fernando (Llorente) and if you remember last season when Harry was out for many games we played with Son (Heung-min).

Tottenham, though, stood firm and refused to sell Dier at any price, with United ultimately signing Nemanja Matic for £40m from Chelsea.

Kane has been Spurs' main man this season, scoring eight goals in 9 appearances.

"We don't need to prove ourselves, that we're Tottenham", he said. We are waiting, maybe he surprise us today or next week. I'm not silly or stupid.

Mauricio Pochettino insists that there is no longer a rift between him and Jose Mourinho after accusing the Portuguese of deliberately "unsettling" one of his players.

"If the manager rests some players, the first create to create the problem is you, to translate to the fans", said Spurs" manager.

"But they are not machines, and in the end you must learn suffering".

Manchester United fell to a shock 2-1 defeat against Premier League new boys Huddersfield, and the Spanish midfielder questioned his team-mates' displays after the game.
