Wouldn’t a win at Old Trafford please us all in this weekend’s big match, It’s a fixture that usually means misery for Spurs, I don’t think we have ever won at Old Trafford in the Premiership but now is as good of a time as any with United not really hitting top gear yet this season and the gap between the two teams seemingly closing.

Spurs boast one of the richest midfields in the Premiership with Redknapp having talent at his disposal which Sir Alex would like to get his hands on. Although United are still a strong side they are not as daunting to play against as the Champions League winning side a few years back which included Christiano Ronaldo.

Team News

Man Utd

Sir Alex is likely to stick with Hernandex in attack after his double last weekend away to Stoke which impressed the United boss and will ensure the Mexican keeps his place in the starting XI. Berbatov will be the obvious choice to partner Hernandez in attack, facing his former side.

Ryan  Giggs is still out with a hamstring injury and the mean that has made all the headlines Wayne Rooney is still out with an Ankle injury which will see Spurs fancy their chances.


Ledley King is improving after suffering a groin injury and may make a return soon although it won’t be for this one. Gallas and Kaboul started the last fixture and may do so again tomorrow although Bassong could be in the running for a place.

Wilson Palacios may start in midfield as Tom Huddlestone has failed to shake of his injury although he may make a return for the Inter Milan game on Tuesday night in the Champions League. Rafael Van der Vaart will start and will probably play the role of supporting the front man, whether that be Crouch of Pav we will have to wait and see.

If Spurs had a fully fit side I would be confident we can do something tomorrow, although still hopeful our injury list might mean that this proves one test too much for us although I hope I am wrong.

  1. win at old trafford stop dreaming

  2. It’s not a nailed-on cert by any means mate. BUT, you’ve always had a good game out of us in recent years and Im sure you know we’re better than ever. Conversely, you’re not really up to much compared to team you were two seasons ago. C’mon you know that’s true don’t you??? If you think you are then it is indeed you sir that is dreaming. 😛

  3. Really confident about this match.Manyoo are in serious decline & there for the taking.They cant buy a clean sheet at the moment & are missing their best player.We can also be grateful that evergreen Ryan Giggs is injured as he has truly tormented us like no other player in the Premier League”s history.Bale will have a field day on the left as Gary Neville is past it & the other right back Rafeal cant defend to save his life…3-0,another Bale hat trick COYS

  4. #2 Ist I ‘m not your mate. 2nd Don’t assume I’m a MU supporter. Giving a good game and failing to consolidate it with a win againts top teams year in a & out will not win the Premiership.
    Maybe you are happy to sit back and say after a 1-0 loss oh it’s OK we played well maybe next time.
    As a “Spurs” supporter since ’65 I want more than a 4th place. So you continue to dream on.
    Poster 2, I agree that the scum are slowly starting to decline and firmly believe it started with the sale of Ronaldo.
    As for the result of this mornings match, we don’t need to win at the Lane , we Will Win ,
