Manchester United will face Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League this weekend. Of course, dealing with Mauricio Pochettino’s landing squad has never been easier for any team including the Red Devils. However, according to Manchester United defender Phil Jones, the party can be a real challenge for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s landing team.
As is known, Manchester United are coached by a new manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who was assigned to be Jose Mourinho’s temporary successor, as the Portuguese coach was sacked from the manager’s seat three weeks ago. Under the direction of Solskjaer, United won positive results, from a total of four matches so far, the Red Devils have successfully won four consecutive wins.
Meanwhile, Tottenham Hotspur also recorded a series of positive results in their last few matches, including against Chelsea in the League Cup yesterday. That is, Spurs are onfire, and obviously they are very worthy of caution, moreover the match will take place at Mauricio Pochettino’s squad headquarters.
Manchester United on paper is no better than Spurs if they talk about the overall performance of both teams in the first half of the season. This is also recognized by Defender Phil Jones, who assessed the counter-spurs match will be a real test for Manchester United’s direction by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
“It’s about momentum and we have to continue, whoever we are facing, we feel good and we feel strong. Spurs are a good test. We are in good standing and we have momentum. We’ve balanced this boat a little and we have to continue. We haven’t done anything yet, we haven’t achieved anything yet but we need to continue. ”
“Maybe, Spurs will be an indicator for us and how far we can go. That is a match that we must win. They are also in good standing and playing well and we have to train well to prepare for this tough fight. Hopefully the momentum can bring us to win the match,” said Jones as quoted on the club’s official website.
