This fixture always brings its fair share of goals and a great deal of excitement but with both sides having so much to play for we could be in for an even more of a spectacle than usual.

Tottenham will be buzzing after successive wins over Arsenal and Chelsea and can probably leave Old Trafford with a point and feel they are still favourites for fourth spot but the fact that they have failed to beat Man United in any of their previous 21 encounters will surely have an affect on the club’s players.

The north London side will also be mindful of the manner in which they blew a two goal lead in this fixture a year ago when strikes by Darren Bent and Luka Modric were cancelled out by a second half onslaught.

Sir Alex Ferguson will need his side to be firing on all cylinders and need all three points to keep the pressure on Premier League leaders Chelsea.

Here are some highlights of previous fixtures between the two sides to whet the appetite.
