Tottenham’s perfect start to the Barclays Premier League season will be put under the spotlight on Saturday when they face champions Manchester United at White Hart Lane, live and exclusive on new sports channel ESPN and ESPN HD.

Spurs’ first ESPN televised fixture against the Hammers saw us take the three points thanks to a stunning late winner from Aaron Lennon, maintaining our 100% start to the season and keeping us top of the fledgling league table. We go into the game high in confidence after another match winning goal from the England winger in the dying seconds against Birmingham City. 

England team mates this week, but sworn enemies come Saturday; Aaron and JD will lock horns with Wayne Rooney, Wes Brown, Ben Foster and former Lillywhite Michael Carrick with whom they will have spent the last 10 or so days on international duty. Meanwhile, another former Spur, Dimitar Berbatov, will be sure to receive a hostile reception following his defection to United in the closing minutes of last August’s transfer window.

To whet your appetite for the game, ESPN’s sister channel ESPN Classic will also be screening memorable encounters between Spurs and Manchester United, from early Saturday morning throughout the weekend, including the infamous 5-3 defeat in September 2001 when 3-0 up at half time a David Beckham inspired United fought back to win 5-3 in spectacular style. Tune in to ESPN Classic on Sky channel 429 and Virgin Media channel 533 or visit www.espnclassic.com for more information.
