Team News

  • Tottenham confirmed this week that Sandro was forced to go under the knife due to the knee injury he sustained at QPR last weekend. Scott Parker will come in, though with the extent of the injury as of yet unclear, rumours are circling that AVB will dip into the transfer market.
  • Emmanuel Adebayor has joined up with the Togo squad for the African Cup of Nations so Clint Dempsey will play in behind Jermain Defoe.
  • Kyle Naughton will likely continue at left-back, though Benoit Assou-Ekotto will be pushing for a start, while William Gallas faces a late fitness test.
  • Jonny Evans has been confirmed as definitely out for Man Utd this week after sitting out the win over Liverpool last week with a hamstring injury.
  • Nemanja Vidic will also be hoping to play, though, so Sir Alex Ferguson has plenty of options in defence.
  • Ashley Young is a doubt with a knee injury but should be back to play at White Hart Lane, where he scored twice last season.

Prediction

  • Tottenham have inflicted one of only 3 defeats Manchester United have suffered this season, and their only one at home in 11 league outings. However, other than that, the north London side have a terrible record against the Red Devils and they will be sure to take nothing for granted.
  • Sir Alex Ferguson's men beat Liverpool on Sunday to win for the 4th time in a row and extend their unbeaten run in the Premier League to 10 matches since losing at Carrow Road.
  • They have only won 2 of their last 5 visits to White Hart Lane, though Spurs have not beaten United at home in the league since 2001. With United in the form they are in and Spurs lacking a few key players, the away side should head back north with all three points, and there may well be a repeat of the 3-1 scoreline United enjoyed here last season.
