Spurs vs Man Utd

Tottenham host Manchester United in one of the games of the weekend on Sunday afternoon in a match Spurs will feel they need to win if they want to keep alive their top 4 hopes.

Jose Mourinho’s team sit in 6th place, two points outside the top 4 and behind their London rivals Chelsea and West Ham.

For Mourinho the game also takes on a special meaning as he faces off against his most recent employer, but also allows him to review the last time the side’s met, which Spurs won 6-1 at Old Trafford.

On that game Mourinho said, “I believe that 6-1 doesn’t reflect the reality. It can happen. Of course it can happen between two great teams, the results they can happen in an isolated way. I go much more in the direction of the other two previous matches between us and United”

“We lost 2-1 at Old Trafford, with the penalty, and we draw 1-1 at home last season, also with a penalty. I think this is more the reality. We are not far from each other so I think it is going difficult match for both. ” 

Jose Mourinho also interrupted his press conference to comment on the passing of HRH Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh.
