Sir Alex Ferguson has told Manchester United magazine Inside
Spurs are eight points behind the Premier League champions, meaning a win would put them within two victories of pulling level with Ferguson’s side. Third-placed Tottenham are also seven points ahead of Arsenal, who are chasing the final automatic qualification spot for next season’s Champions League.
Goals from Danny Welbeck, Anderson and Wayne Rooney gave United a 3-0 win when the sides met at Old Trafford earlier this season, while last season’s match between the sides at White Hart Lane ended in a 0-0 draw. United ended that game with 10 men after Brazilian full-back Rafael was dismissed with 16 minutes remaining, but Tottenham were unable to take advantage of their numerical supremacy and had to settle for a point.
