(GUARDIAN) - Tottenham striker Harry Kane will miss their trip to Old Trafford on Saturday (Oct 28) after he sustained the damage last Sunday (Oct 22) against Liverpool and his absence will be a considerable blow to third-placed side, who are level with their forthcoming opponents, Manchester United.

The England forward has scored 13 times for Spurs this season, including two in the 4-1 victory over Jurgen Klopp's Reds 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".
