Preview: Spurs v United

Hello guys, this Saturday is the game between Tottenham Hotspurs against The Red Devils @ White Hart Lane.

Ryan Giggs believes that the match will live up to the fine traditions of United v Spurs fixtures.
Football purists have often purred in the past about meetings between the glamour clubs of Greater Manchester and North London, pointing to the many creative sparks on both sides. Giggs himself is one such player and he can see several other exponents of the beautiful game in the current Spurs squad.

"They’ve got a lot of players who are on song like Aaron Lennon, and Jermain Defoe’s scoring the goals for them. Spurs are also good defensively and this season they've started really well," said Ryan Giggs about the Spurs.

Giggs scored one of his greatest goals at Tottenham in the early years of his remarkable career and he's enjoyed many other entertaining contests there.

"Over the years there have been some great games," he added. "It’s a fixture that’s famous for two teams who like to play football the right way.

"White Hart Lane is a great place to go but it's always a tough game. We know we'll have to be at our best because we’re playing against a very good side."

Another good news is Rio Ferdinand could return against Spurs. He may make an ahead-of-schedule back from injury in time for Saturday's trip to Tottenham.

Rio has been out of action since the Community Shield due to a thigh injury, but has trained all week and may now feature @ White Hart Lane. "Rio has a chance for Saturday, I'm not sure it's a big chance but he has a chance," said Sir Alex Ferguson.

Sir Alex confirmed Gary Neville had trained every day after playing for the Reserves last Thursday and will be available for selection on Saturday. John O'Shea, however, is unlikely to be passed fit after returning from international duty with a calf injury.
