Etienne Capoue

Tottenham Hotspur will play Manchester United at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Sunday.

The Tottenham Hotspur players have stepped up their preparations for Sunday’s Premier League clash against Manchester United away from home.

The match at Old Trafford will be crucial for both sides, as they continue their challenge for a top-four finish in the league this season.

The Spurs players were caught on camera training hard on Wednesday, but one player stood out.

Etienne Capoue has been a peripheral figure in Tottenham’s 2014-15 campaign, having been able to make just 12 appearances in the Premier League.

The 26-year-old defensive midfielder started the season well, but he soon fizzled out and now seems to be suplus to requirements at the North London outfit.

The France international, though, continues to train with his Spurs teammates, but on Wednesday there was something different about him.

As the picture above shows, Capoue has a new hair colour, and it’s red!

Perhaps the change in hair style will see Capoue get some of his old form back and contribute to Tottenham’s final months of the season.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side are currently sixth in the Premier League table with 50 points from 28 matches, just three points behind fourth-placed Manchester United.
