LONDON (AP) – Harry Kane will miss Tottenham's match against Manchester United in the Premier League on Saturday because of a hamstring injury.

Tottenham says the striker underwent assessment this week that showed ''a minor strain to the left hamstring.''

Tottenham coach Mauricio Pochettino says it is a ''small'' injury but that Kane would not be risked against United.

Pochettino says ''there is no sense in taking that risk and making the problem bigger.''

Second-place United and third-place Tottenham both have 20 points, five behind Manchester City after nine games.
