Tottenham Hotspur confirm Kane carrying minor injury.

Tottenham Hotspur confirm Harry Kane carrying minor hamstring ahead of Man Utd trip

Harry Kane is likely to miss Tottenham's lunchtime Premier League clash with Manchester United on Saturday after his club confirmed the striker has suffered a minor strain to his left hamstring.
Kane was substituted during Spurs' win over Liverpool last weekend, with what was thought to be cramp.
But 24 hours ahead of the Old Trafford match, the club confirmed it was in fact a hamstring strain.
Kane has struck 17 goals for club and country already this season, including 13 in September alone.
Pochettino said at his pre-match press conference on Friday that Kane will not be involved at Old Trafford.
"We can't take the risk," the Argentine said. "The doctor and medical staff made the decision to not take the risk. There is no sense in taking that risk and making the problem bigger."
Pochettino acknowledged his disappointment at being without the prolific forward but insisted it was "only a small issue".
"The players are not machines and it is so difficult to cope with international duty and playing every three days," he added. "It is not a big problem, only a small issue, but he is not going to play [on Saturday].
With Spurs hosting Real Madrid in the Champions League four days later, Pochettino was non-committal on Kane's chances of facing the LaLiga giants, saying: "We'll see after for Wednesday against Real."
"We don't need to prove ourselves [without Kane]. I think last season, in the period he was injured, you can see the stats and the games we played - win and lose with Harry, win and lose without Harry.
"I'm disappointed because he is our main striker and I think he is one of the best strikers in Europe, in the world, and always you are going to miss your best striker. I am not silly or stupid to talk in a different way."
