Moyes Expecting Tough Spurs

Manchester United manager, David Moyes, said the despite Tottenham Hotspurs’ 6-0 loss to Manchester City last weekend in the Barclays Premiership, he is expecting a tough game on Sunday.

The two teams are set to lock horns at White Hart Lane with only one point separating them on the table.

At the time of writing, United occupied sixth place on the league table with 21 points from 12 games while Spurs sit in ninth place on 20 points.

Moyes also made mention of the fact that both sides may be a little fatigued after taking part in European competitions during midweek.

United confirmed their place in the knockout stages of the Champions League with a 5-0 win over Bayer Leverkusen on Wednesday, while Tottenham confirmed their place in the last 32 of the Europa League with a 2-0 win over Tromso on Thursday.

“We know that no matter when you play Tottenham Hotspur, it will always be a hard game,” said Moyes

“The games against Manchester United have been good. It is one of these things, we are both coming off the back of European games as well.

“But we will go down there and try to win the game, as we always do.”

Ryan Giggs was one of United’s standout performers in their 5-0 win over Leverkusen on Wednesday, and Moyes was quick to praise him, but reluctant to comment on the Welsh players’ future or his renewed contract at the club, saying it was down to how Giggs felt personally.

“When you get to this age it is always a late decision and you wait until the end of the season,” added Moyes.

“It is based on how you feel, how you have done over the year and what your body is telling you.

“He's undoubtedly at the top because of his longevity and the time that he has played for just one club, the amount of games he has played in Europe and in the Premier League.

“Every season, you can look at Ryan Giggs moments. To be playing so well at his age is terrific and a great example to young players about how you should dedicate yourself throughout your career.

“It also tells players who get into their early to mid-30s and think things are coming to an end that if they really look after themselves and train well, they can go on for a lot longer.”
