Tottenham host Manchester United in the clash of the Premier League weekend and should start as favourites for the tie.
The Lilywhites defeated United in the earlier meeting between the two sides, however, the away side are rejuvenated under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
While the new manager has won every game in charge, the players are performing at a very high level.
Mauricio Pochettino was wary of the threat possessed by United, and pinpointed one player that could cause damage to Spurs (h/t Express):
“When you play in this Premier League, every weekend, or every three days as we’ve been playing in the last few months, always it’s about the opponent have a few players that can make the difference.
“Like last Tuesday it was Eden Hazard, and now Paul Pogba. Pogba is a very talented player, a great player of course.”
Pochettino added that there are others who could do the damage as well but Pogba has been great under the Norwegian.
The French midfielder missed the 2-0 win over Reading in the FA Cup but should be fit for the clash at Wembley.
The 3-0 win over the Red Devils came early on in the season, and this should be a tough test for us. Tottenham have been in free-scoring form in recent weeks with Harry Kane doing a fantastic job leading the line.
Spurs also are in the title race and need to win these big games. We sit six points behind Liverpool ahead of this weekend’s fixtures, and it is important that we pick up the three points on Sunday.
