Tottenham v Manchester United

Last Updated: 14/01/13 11:30am

Tottenham will be looking to do the double over Manchester United as these Premier League heavyweights clash in front of the Sky Sports cameras at White Hart Lane on January 20th.

That would cap an historic season in the rivalry between these two great clubs.

Spurs picked up their first win at Old Trafford in 23 years in September when Andre Villas-Boas' side stunned the home crowd in a memorable 3-2 triumph. Remarkably, it was United's only home defeat of 2012 in the Premier League.

Will lightning strike twice? You only have to look back to the corresponding fixture last season to appreciate just what a tough task Spurs face at the weekend. The Red Devils ran out comfortable 3-1 winners that day in March as Harry Redknapp's title challenge as Spurs boss faded fast.

That was the start of a woeful run of form in the spring that led to Tottenham missing out on UEFA Champions League football and chairman Daniel Levy opting to replace Redknapp with Villas-Boas in the summer. There were murmurs of discontent but the Portuguese coach has succeeded in putting his own stamp on the Lilywhites and they are on track for a top-four finish again this season.

Of course, Sir Alex Ferguson and his team have grander ambitions than that and even a tricky assignment like this will be seen as a potential three points in their quest to wrestle the Premier League title back from rivals Manchester City.

Will Fergie be all smiles at the final whistle or will it be another case of AVB getting one over on the United boss. Super Sunday will have the answers.
