Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur will face each other in the Premier League this weekend.

Jamie Redknapp has outlined on Skysports.com the problem that Manchester United will face against Tottenham Hotspur this weekend.

United will face Tottenham at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

“The problem they'll face is this Tottenham team are regaining momentum after a tricky few weeks - and they don't have the same fear of Old Trafford that they once did, either,” former Spurs midfielder Redknapp wrote on Skysports.com.

“The gap has closed between these two clubs over the last few years. When I went to Tottenham they hadn't won at Old Trafford in I don't know how many years and every time you went there you could see and feel the players were apprehensive about it.

“It's daunting enough as it is to go to Old Trafford, but even more so when you've got a team who don't really feel they can win. Tottenham got so used to getting beaten there.

“But you can see now they go to Old Trafford without the fear they used to. There's a collective belief in the Tottenham camp.”

Tottenham have won their last two competitive matches and are scoring goals for fun at the moment.

The North London outfit got the better of Swansea City 5-0 at White Hart Lane in the Premier League last weekend.

Then on Wednesday evening, Spurs won 3-1 against CSKA Moscow at the Wembley Stadium in London in Champions League Group E.

Winning against United at Old Trafford will not be easy, but Mauricio Pochettino’s side can certainly pick up a point.

Spurs will not be scared to play their usual high-pressing game, and one should not be surprised if they score one or two goals against the Red Devils.

United will head into the match against United on the back of a 2-0 defeat to Zorya Luhansk away from home in Europa League Group A.

The Red Devils drew 1-1 with Everton away from home at Goodison Park in the Premier League last weekend.
