Tottenham striker Harry Kane has suffered a minor strain to his left hamstring, the club have announced.
The in-form 24-year-old left the field at Wembley holding his upper leg in the 87th minute after scoring twice in last Sunday’s 4-1 win over Liverpool, and is now a major doubt for Saturday’s Premier League lunchtime kick-off at Manchester United.
Rio Ferdinand believes that the absence of Kane will cost Spurs more than just tomorrow’s game.
The club described Kane’s injury as a “minor strain to the left hamstring” which has already been assessed.
Pochettino said it was only a “small issue” but he did not want to exacerbate the problem by playing him against United.
