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.
