“We started to beat those teams at home but it’s true, we need to start sometime to beat them away from home,” said Luka Modric. “But it’s not easy, Man United, and al those clubs are great clubs, and it’s not easy to go there and win.”
And Modric warned the time could be right for a belated Old Trafford success, when he added: “We are full of confidence at the moment and so why not beat them on Saturday after a long time?
”They have maybe some problems at the moment, but I think we can play with them, and why not beat them on Saturday?” (Daily Telegraph)
Not since Teddy Sheringham scored twice to beat Liverpool 2-1 at Anfield in 1993 have Tottenham beaten one of the so called Big Four away from home.
Their trip to Manchester United this weekend will not be easy – their league record there is even poorer. Spurs last beat the Red Devils at Old Trafford in 1989 – before the Premier League begun.
Since then they have lost 16 matches and drawn 4 in twenty trips.
Will that change on Saturday?
Tottenham Hotspur have showed that they can compete with some of the best teams Europe has to offer in the UEFA Champions League, and last season beat Manchester City home and away.
They have the ability, but whether they can do it on the day is a completely different matter.
