In Sir Alex Ferguson’s 986th league game in charge at Old Trafford he surpasses Sir Matt Busby’s record, so a win would be a fitting reward.
But a trip to White Hart Lane against a strong Spurs side means this could be a trickier task than previous attempts.
With Man City opening a 5 point gap yesterday, United will hope to take all 3 points and keep the pressure on Mancini’s side and looking at Sir Alex’s squad selection it appears he is going for it.
Starting XI: De Gea, Jones, Evans, Ferdinand, Evra, Young, Scholes, Carrick, Nani, Rooney, Welbeck
Subs: Amos, Giggs, Park, Hernandez, Fabio, Rafael, Anderson
