Jermaine Jenas says we won’t curb our open, attacking style of football for the visit of Manchester United on Sunday.

It’s set-up for a classic with United top of the table, unbeaten and currently clear title-favourites while we sit fourth in the Premier League with just one defeat in our last 10 league matches.

JJ is aware of the quality of the visitors but insists we’ll treat the game the same as any other.

“You approach every game the same,” he said. “You want to win, you want to be positive, you want to score goals, you don’t want to lose.

“With United, you have to be a bit more careful in certain areas and not so gung-ho because they are a quality side and can pick you off.

“But if anything’s proved anything this season, it’s that we’re about scoring goals and playing attacking, exciting football.

“That’s got us to where we are now, so why should we change?”

JJ, back in the side for our last league game at Everton, said victory would be a real statement in the Premier League.

“They are undefeated and I’m sure they would say that they haven’t been playing at their best but, as champions do, they continue to churn out results and pick up victories.

“It would be a fantastic result for us and it would really send a message out if we could get that victory.”
