The Spurs hit-man could also miss Wednesday’s high-octane Champions League clash with Real Madrid.

Kane is currently recovering from a hamstring injury that he picked up during Spurs’ 4-1 win over Liverpool at Wembley on Sunday.

Pochettino had not included his top scorer in the squad that succumbed to a shocking 3-2 loss to West Ham despite being two goals ahead in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night.

It was expected that Kane would make a speedy recovery but recent reports suggest that the England striker is not responding as quickly to the rehabilitation process as was expected by the doctors.

Pochettino substituted Fernando Llorente, the only remaining natural striker in his squad, with 20 minutes remaining against the Hammers, despite lagging behind by a goal. It was understood that the Argentine adopted a safety measure, keeping in mid the high-octane clash with Man Utd on Saturday.

When asked if Kane would be fit to face the Red Devils, Pochettino said: “We’ll see. We need to assess the team. We were forced to rotate on Wednesday for different reasons.”
