Tottenham ready for Man Utd, says Villas-Boas

In that time United have beaten Bayer Leverkusen 5-0 in the Champions League, while Spurs recorded a 2-0 win over Tromso in the Europa League in Norway. Villas-Boas, however, believes United’s storming win in Germany will not play a part in their domestic fixture. The Portuguese nevertheless admitted his side face a hard game.

Look, we are just getting on with the job here,” Villas-Boas said. “Obviously the opponent we have on Sunday is the biggest that we can have. They are on a good run that changed their fortunes. We don’t expect an easy match, but it will be a completely different story [for United] on Sunday.

I watched their game [5-0 win against Bayern Leverkusen],” he added. “It was a good performance, but it will have no bearing on Sunday. I’m not being disrespectful, but it will be a different game in different conditions and our players will be mentally ready.

Tottenham were beaten 6-0 by City in their last league outing, a result that left them eight points adrift of league leaders Arsenal, in ninth place with a negative goal difference. The midweek win over Tromso did though secure top spot in their Europa League group, with Villas-Boas praising his side’s performance.
