Premier League leaders Manchester United will be out for revenge as they look to deny Tottenham a double today at White Hart Lane. The London side beat the Reds in September, ending their 23 year wait for a win at Old Trafford.
Sir Alex Ferguson’s men will be keen on avoiding a repeat of that loss today as they aim to keep their 7 lead gap on top of the Premier League nurtured. After beating Liverpool 2-1 last weekend, it should give them enough confidence to cross the line.
Starting XI: David de Gea; Rafael da Silva, Nemanja Vidic, Rio Ferdinand, Patrice Evra; Michael Carrick, Phil Jones, Tom Cleverley; Shinji Kagawa, Robin van Persie, Danny Welbeck.
Bench: Anders Lindegaard, Chris Smalling, Wayne Rooney, Ryan Giggs, Javier Hernandez, Anderson, Antonio Valencia.
– Giggs has scored more Premier League goals against Spurs than versus any other opponent (10).
– Spurs have lost just one of their last 10 Premier League matches (W7 D2 L1).
– Robin van Persie has scored nine goals in his last nine Premier League games.
