London, Oct 27 : Tottenham Hotspur's star forward Harry Kane is set to miss the Manchester United clash in the English Premier League (EPL) on Saturday due to a 'minor injury', club coach Mauricio Pochettino confirmed on Friday.

"For tomorrow, we cannot take a risk. It's a minor injury, very small, but we cannot take a risk. We'll see after for Wednesday against Real Madrid. Tomorrow, it's impossible," Pochettino was quoted as saying by EspnFc during a pre-match conference. 

The Argentine believes the injury is a big blow for the side and he wanted all his players to be available for the important clash. 

"Yes, you always want all the players available. It's a problem. We want them available to play," the 45-year-old said.

"We always believe in the collective, the squad. During the season, problems happen and you must trust all the players, all the squad. I told the players they are not machines and its so difficult to cope with international duty, play every three days. It's lucky it's not a big problem but he's not going to play tomorrow," Pochettino added. 

Tottenham and Manchester United share 20 equal points to sit third and second respectively in the EPL table separated by goal difference.
