Tottenham striker Harry Kane OUT of clash with Man United

Mauricio Pochettino

"We'll miss him for the next game and hope he will be ready for Real Madrid", the Argentine manager opined as he stressed that Spurs' collective strength would be enough to see them secure three points at Old Trafford despite Kane's absence.

Kane has scored 13 goals in 12 appearances in all competitions for Spurs this season, who are level on points with second-placed Manchester United.

The former Southampton manager praised his players effort and performance, despite Tottenham leaving Old Trafford empty handed: "The effort was fantastic".

"Always you want to have all the players available, so this is a problem".

"We're very disappointed - it's a minor injury but we can not take a risk", Pochettino was quoted as saying by the club website ahead of the tie with the Red Devils.

"You must adapt when some player are not fit to play".

"So to lose again, I think it is going to happen, but in terms of the attitude that we didn't like and knowing the players and what good people they are, I believe it was an isolated case".

"You're always going to miss your main striker and Harry Kane is one of the best strikers in the world, of course", said Pochettino.

United have lost significant ground in the last fortnight, following up a dire goalless draw at Liverpool by falling to a surprising first league defeat of the season last Saturday, as Huddersfield Town beat them 2-1. The players are not machines and it is so hard to cope with worldwide duty and playing every three days. I still see United as the bigger threat to any chance of Arsenal claiming the EPL trophy this season, especially if Kane's hamstring problem allows them to not park the bus as expected but instead to get a morale boosting win. "We just need to focus on Saturday and we will".

But Mourinho said that while it will be hard for Shaw, he does have a future under him. It's small problem so that we can fix in a few days probably.

"It was a very, very, very competitive game", he added.

"For tomorrow, we can not take a risk".
