Dembele: We Do Not Fear United

Mousa Dembele believes Tottenham can go and "surprise everyone" by beating Manchester United at Old Trafford on New Year's Day.

Spurs ended a four-game winless run at home in the Premier League by comfortably beating Stoke City on Sunday, with Dembele scoring the second of Spurs three goals.

And Dembele believes that, armed with the confidence brought on by beating the Potters, his team are more than capable of repeating the feat and start 2014 with a win.

"We have a different team to last year, so it's difficult to think about that game," the Belgian admitted. "They will be motivated against us, but we're not scared to play there and surprise everyone.

"They are a top team. We have a lot of respect for them but not too much. We are a good team and we have to play our own game, and we can do something.

"My memories of Old Trafford are quite good. With Fulham we played well and with Tottenham we won last year, so I'm not scared to go there. I have a lot of respect for them but we can do something there."

Dembele also praised new boss Tim Sherwood after he took over the reigns from Andre Villas Boas.

"He's not been with us long but he's made some adjustments and he's talked with us a lot," he added. "He gives us confidence to play our own game and to attack while remaining organised.

"We're playing in a very attacking way, but he makes sure we're organised. You can't all attack at once, so he explains it to us and we train that way."
