Hughton's United front

Posted on 2 February 2004  - 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).

Chris Hughton views the potential FA Cup fifth round tie at Manchester United as an exciting prospect for the club should the team overcome Manchester City in Wednesday's replay.

The draw took place on Monday afternoon with United first out of the pot, swiftly followed by No.1 - Tottenham Hotspur or Manchester City.

The first team coach admitted that the preference of most teams with ambitions to progress in the competition is to avoid the top two teams in the Premiership but, all the same, relishes the idea of attempting to succeed on the Old Trafford stage.

"Obviously we've got to get through the Manchester City game first, but then possibly the two you don't really want to get at this point are Manchester United and Arsenal - with United being the harder one because of the travelling aspect.

"So it doesn't come any harder than Manchester United away.

"We have to keep saying that we have to get through the City game first but, if we were to do that, then it is a massive game. As a manager, coach and certainly a player, going to Old Trafford is always a very exciting prospect - daunting, but still exciting."
