Tottenham striker, Harry Kane will not be available for their crucial Premier League clash with Manchester United as he has been ruled out with a hamstring injury.
The 24-year-old England international scored twice as Spurs beat Liverpool 4-1 last Sunday, before being substituted in the 88th minute.
He is the leading scorer in the League this season with eight goals, and will miss the chance of increasing his tally this weekend when his side face the Red Devils.
“The doctor and medical staff made the decision to not take the risk”, said Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino.

“There is no sense in taking that risk and making the problem bigger”, he added.
A tweet from Spurs said the injury was “a minor strain to the left hamstring”.
Kane has scored 13 goals in 12 appearances in all competitions for Tottenham this season – who sit third in the Premier League table.
Manchester United are second in the table, level on points with third-placed Spurs.
