Opposition Preview: Fergie on Spurs test


Sir Alex Ferguson has warned his Manchester United players to expect a tough game at Spurs on Sunday.

Fergie’s side currently sit top of the Premier League table and will be looking to avoid suffering their first double defeat at our hands since the 1989-90 campaign.

Fergie has praised the work which Andre Villas-Boas has done since taking over the managerial reigns at the Lane and believes that we will “challenge” for the top four. I’m not sure how much praise that could mean since we don’t want to settle for fourth place.

He told the official Man Utd site: “I think Spurs have done well this season,”

“I’ve watched quite a few of their games and their form has been consistent. They’re in good form and I think they’ll challenge for the top four.

“We have a fantastic record there,” he added. “It’s a stadium that’s old-fashioned, football-wise, like Aston Villa and Everton. There’s always a good atmosphere and we enjoy playing there. But we can’t take anything for granted. We have a hard game on Sunday. We have to perform.”

United are unbeaten in 11 league visits to White Hart Lane, let’s hope that AVB and the boys can end this run.
