"On Wednesday [against Real Madrid] we have another game so we can not think too much on the mistake". "I feel it is so close, but only need to wait for it to click in his mind that he is ready".

Striker Kane, 24, will miss Saturday's match at Old Trafford with a hamstring injury he picked up in Sunday's 4-1 home victory over Liverpool.

'I said before the game, you are going to miss your main striker and Harry is one of the greatest strikers in the world, of course.

England striker Kane has scored 13 Premier League goals this season and has hit five in the European Cup against Borussia Dortmund and Apoel Nicosia.

"It is a collective sport and always you must adapt when some player is not fit to play". We were always in control of the game. During the season, problems happen and you must trust all the players, all the squad.

Kane was ruled out of the weekend's big game with a hamstring injury and replacement Son Heung-Min was so ineffective he was hauled off for Fernando Llorente in the second half. Pochettino said it was only a "small issue" but he did not want to exacerbate the problem by playing him against United.

In a briefing with the press, Mourinho said that people should not talk to him about Harry Kane's injury yet he has to play without French midfielder Paul Pogba, Belgian powerhouse Marouane Fellaini, veteran Michael Carrick and injury-prone Argentinian Marcos Rojo.

"It's a decision of the doctor and medical staff not to take a risk".

"It is so hard to cope with worldwide duty and playing every three days". It's a problem. We want them available to play.

And Mauricio Pochettino says he will not take a risk with Kane's fitness, admitting his gruelling start to the season has taken its toll.

Asked if the loss of Kane will force him into a change of system, Pochettino said: "Today is the second day after West Ham game so it's hard".

Mourinho will be looking for his players to show a considerable improvement on their attitude to the one they displayed against Huddersfield. "It's one more goal".
