"I don't speak about injured players, so don't ask me about Harry Kane, because to speak about Kane I have to speak about (Zlatan) Ibrahimovic, (Paul) Pogba, (Marcos) Rojo, (Michael) Carrick so I don't speak".

Kane has been in unstoppable form this season with 13 goals in 12 games for Spurs and 17 for club and country.

Those comments, allied with his frustrating and injury-ravaged time under Mourinho at Old Trafford, have led to speculation that Shaw will find himself surplus to requirements under the United manager. "It is not a big problem, only a small issue, but he is not going to play (on Saturday)".

Pochettino told his prematch news conference on Friday: "For tomorrow, we can not take a risk". You always want all the players available.

"I said before the game that you are always going to miss your main striker and Harry Kane is one the best strikers in the world", he said. It's a minor injury, very small, but we can not take a risk.

"Of course, football is about the squad, we have good players and we can replace him and try to win", Pochettino asserted. We always believe in collective, the squad. "It happens during a season, you can not play well all the time, you can not win all the time".

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. "We'll take the best decision for the team", the 45-year-old stated.

"We don't need to prove ourselves, that we're Tottenham", he said. It's small problem so that we can fix in a few days probably. I told the players are not machines and its so hard to cope with global duty, play every three days.

"It's hard to explain", he said.

Pochettino could hand summer signing Fernando Llorente his full Premier League debut in place of Kane, while using Son Heung-Min as an out-and-out striker is also a possibility.

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