Jonny Evans believes Manchester United can rule Tottenham out of this season's title race with victory at White Hart Lane on Sunday.
Spurs are currently outsiders to take the Premier League crown, but feel they remain in the running with 12 games still to play.
They would, however, find themselves 11 points adrift of United were they to come unstuck against Sir Alex Ferguson's side this weekend.
Evans believes that would be enough to rule them out of the race, allowing the Red Devils to focus all of their attention on pipping arch-rivals Manchester City to the post.
"They (Spurs) are a great side and I think everyone has been really impressed with the style of football they play," the centre-half said in the Manchester Evening News.
"They are really attacking and Harry Redknapp has built up a great squad, it's not just a first XI.
"It is going to be a really tough game when we go there.
"For us they are all important games, but if we can beat Tottenham, you would think we might rule them out."
