Toby Alderweireld is aware that he can't afford to make many mistakes against compatriot Romelu Lukaku when Tottenham Hotspur visit Manchester United on Saturday.

Tottenham Hotspur's suffers a major setback ahead of their next match as their 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. Manchester City can expect to receive some headaches from this game.

But he has now been ruled out of the showdown with Jose Mourinho's side tomorrow lunchtime.

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

"I don't speak about injured players, so don't ask me about Harry Kane", the Portuguese added, before listing United's own lengthy injury list.

United also enter having not only won their last five Premier League games at home but also keeping a clean sheet in each one.

He has, however, scored 29 goals in 26 Premier League appearances in 2017 - seven off the all-time record in a calendar year held by Alan Shearer, who scored 36 goals in 1995.

And Kane is also the leading scorer in this season's Champions League.
