Sir Alex already declared it as massive game. He is right. Tottenham would be the toughest game en route to the 20th title. United still have to meet City on 30th April but this game also could be the decider.
After the heartbreak in Northern London derby against Arsenal, Man United should worry of Spur backlash. They really wounded in that game. They were very in form team before the game against the Gunner. Bet on them to win and so they were the favourite. When they were leading 2-0 all the bets seemed going perfectly. Then disaster struck. Arsenal came back strongly and hit five passed them. It really hurt.
In the contrast Man United was made work hard by Norwich City. A late goal save United. The never say died attitude gave Man United the cutting edge. It was also a morale boost in their title defense.
It a must win game for both.
Man United will again have De Gea as the stopper. He has been brilliant lately producing some outstanding saves. Thus lifted the pressures on him. The backline would be Evra-Ferdinand-Evans- Jones. Though Rafael is natural fullback but Jones is more compose and rarely made mistake. As this massive game, United will need all the experience they had. Carrick and Scholes at central midfield. Nani would be on the right wing. Park Ji Sung would be on the left. The Korean is a player for a big game so he should play. No sure Rooney is fit. So Welbeck and Hernandez would play. But Berbatov is more suitable to partner Hernandez. The Bulgarian who just signed new contract is better choice.
Hope Man United win 2-0.
