Harry Redknapp will discard the history books as we prepare to face Manchester United at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Harry Redknapp will discard the history books as we prepare to face Manchester United at Old Trafford on Saturday.

We haven't won at Old Trafford in the Premier League and you have to go back to 1989 for our last victory at the 'Theatre of Dreams'.

But those statistics mean nothing to Harry as we continue to bid for fourth place in the Premier League.

"That's years gone by," said the boss on Friday. "It's different teams, different players. I don't buy into all that.

"We hadn't beaten Arsenal for 11 years but beat them this season. We also drew with them twice last season. Chelsea very rarely got beaten, but we beat them again this season.

"It's all about now, not the past and those records count for nothing."

We're after a spectacular hat-trick of scalps in the space of 10 days having beaten title-contenders Arsenal and Chelsea at the Lane.

But Harry feels this is the toughest task of the lot against a United side just a point adrift of Chelsea in the race for the title.

"We've got to go to Old Trafford and play even better than we did against Arsenal and Chelsea to get something out of it," said Harry.

"United are a top, top team. I'm sure they would have beaten Bayern Munich in the Champions League but for that sending off. They got beaten by Chelsea, another great side, who went to Old Trafford and played well and then needed a result against City and scored in the last minute.

"That was real pressure game but they came through it and that's typical United.

"But we're playing well, we're full of confidence and we'll give it a real go."
