Throughout this week there will be plenty of stories reminding us that we haven’t won at Old Trafford since Gary Linker’s effort secured a 1-0 victory way back in 1989. In truth, most Spurs fans would settle for a point in this Saturday’s late kick-off and new recruit Jan Vertonghen is confident that we can achieve a draw at the very least.
“I’m really looking forward to my first game there with Tottenham,” Jan said.
“I think we’re strong enough to do nice things there. A lot of players are injured and when everyone is back I think we’ll have one of the strongest teams in the league.
“We’ve played well away from home and we’ve got a lot of confidence, especially after our first home win.”
Spurs have only managed a handful of draws in that 23 year period – the most notable coming with the Mendes’ phantom goal. Would you settle for a point or is this Spurs side capable of taking the win and ending the jinx?
