Glenn's United belief

Posted on 5 March 2002  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Glenn Hoddle insists we will go to Old Trafford with the belief of upsetting Manchester United's title charge.

The reigning champions are on a blistering streak of 12 wins in their last 14 Premiership games.

Boss Sir Alex Ferguson insisted United would need 'a miracle' to retain their crown after they lost their sixth league game against West Ham in December but they are now top of the table and odds-on favourites again.

"They are obviously the best team in the division at the moment," conceded Glenn. "They are flying. They might have only have picked up a point at Derby but the bottom line is that they did enough to win the game.

"But I've been there twice with Chelsea and got great results with teams I wouldn't consider as good as we've been this season.

"They are not invincible and we can go there with plenty of belief about ourselves.

"If we perform how we know we can we'll give anyone in this league a run for their money. We've got to put that type of performance on."

So how does a manager go about taking United on at Old Trafford? "Sometimes you just decide on the day," said Glenn.

"Sometimes you might go with the emphasis of getting at them, having a go at them and if it's not panning out you might have to change. That's an option.

"One thing is for sure, when you go to Old Trafford you will have to defend well anyway.

"If we defend well and do our stuff on the ball I'm sure we can cause problems as well."
