Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wary of Tottenham Hotspur threat ahead of Manchester United’s showdown vs Spurs

Speaking ahead of their encounter (h/t ManUtd.com) with Tottenham Hotspur, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is wary of the threat posed by Spurs and their manager Nuno Espirito Santo. The Red Devils boss is expecting a tough encounter when his side take on Spurs on Saturday in an English Premier League clash.

Solskjaer’s future is hanging by a thread at Old Trafford after his side was humbled by Leicester City and Liverpool in the last two weekends of the Premier League. The Norwegian will surely be under pressure and would want his side to be at their best during their match against Spurs.

When asked (h/t ManUtd.com) how much of a threat Spurs could be, Ole was quick to point out that it will be a tough game.

Gunnar Solskjaer (L) and  Nuno Espirito Santo will face each other for the ninth time.

“You know Tottenham with the quality they’ve got and the manager they’ve got, they’re always going to give you a challenge. We have to be ready, go out there, perform, work for each other and do what we’ve agreed before the game.”

Tottenham Hotspur and United both have been pretty inconsistent so far in the season and both the teams and their managers will be eyeing redemption on Saturday. Between Tottenham (13) and United (15), they have conceded 28 goals combined from each of their opening nine league matches.

Ole vs Nuno

Solskjaer and Nuno know all about one another as the duo has been up against each other quite frequently in the past. The Portuguese was the manager of Wolverhampton Wanderers for a decent amount of time before taking over the helm at Old Trafford less than three years ago.

Nuno’s future also looks bleak if Spurs continue their poor record this season, especially in London derbies. The Lilywhites have lost against all the London clubs they have come against this season, but a win against United today would be akin to beating any one of our close rivals, considering how badly the team is in need of a win right now.

One can expect a tight game as both the teams will be looking for a positive result after last week’s heartbreak for them. United were hammered 5-0 by Liverpool last weekend while Spurs went down 1-0 to West Ham United.
