A big blow has been dealt on Tottenham Hotspur as they get set to face Manchester United this weekend in what has been dubbed the star fixture of the Premier League. 

It has been confirmed that Harry Kane has been ruled out of Tottenham’s Premier League game at Old Trafford on Saturday with a hamstring injury.

The striker sustained the damage last Sunday against Liverpool and his absence is a considerable blow to Tottenham.

Kane has scored 13 times for the club this season, including two in the 4-1 victory over Jürgen Klopp’s side before he came off in the 88th minute holding the strained hamstring.

Tottenham said on Twitter that Kane “underwent assessment and investigation earlier this week, which confirmed a minor strain to the left hamstring”.

The manager, Mauricio Pochettino, said: “We can’t take the risk. 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."
