Ex skipper thinks Spurs can make title statement at Old Trafford

Ledley King belie ves Spurs can make a statement in the title race by gaining victory at Old Trafford against Manchester United this coming Saturday lunchtime.

We are are level on points with Jose Mourinho’s men and trail leaders Manchester City by five points going into the game.
Speaking outside the club’s new stadium at a Spurs Foundation’s Premier League Kicks programme which supports children in the local community.

Ledley said: “Obviously there are still plenty of points to play for this season so it [the result at Old Trafford] is not going to make or break anything.
“But it is a great chance to put down a marker, to say that we are are going to be here in the run in right up to the end of the season. If we are able to go to Manchester and get a result I think everyone sits up, takes notice and knows that we’re in for the race to the end.

The ex Spurs captain continued: “United are a good team but they’ve had some disappointing results so they’ll be looking to bounce back as soon as possible. It will be a good game of football with both teams trying to win.”

Harry Kane of course is the Premier League’s leading goalscorer with eight and has scored twice on three occasions, and Ledley is expecting the striker to deliver again on Saturday. King said: “Everyone expects him to score every week now, that’s the kind of level he’s reached. He’s playing with such confidence he’ll go into every game believing that he’s going to score one or two goals.”

Ledley was then asked how Kane compares to the list of our all time goal-scoring greats, and the now club ambassador said: “We’ve obviously had legendary players like Jimmy Greaves, Jurgen Klinsmann, Teddy Sheringham. I played with Robbie Keane and Jermain Defoe. At the moment Harry’s right up there with them, for sure he’s one of the best strikers in the world.”

So, how do you think it’ll go. Will victory be a big statement in the title race or is it too early to call just yet?. The lads need to bounce back but there’s hardly a more difficult place to go than Old Trafford.


Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Sorry to have to change the subject slightly but I definitely think that the new stadium should have a capacity of at least 65000.
    We are presently averaging 70000+ in the league, what with 80000 against Liverpool not including European games. Once the Victoria line is upgraded to Tottenham we will become the centre of English football.
    Let's get it done!!
