Britain Football Soccer - Tottenham Hotspur v Sunderland - Premier League - White Hart Lane - 18/9/16 Tottenham's Harry Kane Reuters
CAIRO – 27 October 2017: Harry Kane, top scorer of Tottenham Hotspur this season, will be out due to injury from the upcoming Premier League match this weekend against Manchester United at Old Trafford. It is also doubtful he will be ready for Wednesday's match against Real Madrid, coach Mauricio Pochettino and the club confirmed Friday.
The club, on Twitter, confirmed that the player had "a slight distension in the left calf," that will force him to miss this weekend’s match.
"Harry Kane underwent a test earlier in the week and had a mild distention in his left calf," Tottenham said on Twitter.
Kane suffered hamstring discomfort in the 85th minute of last Sunday's encounter with Liverpool (4-1), in which he scored two goals and gave an assist. He was substituted and at the time the coach said the change had been because Kane was tired.
"It's a small injury, but we cannot take any risks and we'll see how it is for Wednesday against Real Madrid in the Champions League, but for the Manchester United clash; it's impossible, he is ruled out," Pochettino said.
"You always want all your players available, but sometimes there are problems and you cannot," Pochettino added.
Kane has been the most outstanding player in the whole of North London this season, with 17 goals in 16 games played between his club and the English national team.
