The 2000/01 party is almost over and as some scramble after European dates, for these two teams it's almost time to grab their jackets and head off for the summer break. Manchester United waltzed to the title and Spurs - having landed their messiah - are firmly banging the 'next season' drum.
Lost four, won two and drawn once is hardly the stuff of revelations at White Hart Lane but with money to spend, the summer could see clouds begin to part over North London. There is also a glowing pool of young talent at the club and wise men have pointed to the likes of Matthew (Etherington), Mark (Gower), Luke (Young) and Jon (Jonssen) as potential bright stars of the future.
This visit of the Red Devils will be a stern test of Tottenham's fortitude. United might have lost the last two games, but with the title wrapped up it mattered little. However, the greatest trick they perform is convincing the world that the threat does not exist, and then just like that, they break and score. Ryan Giggs has been playing slightly more centrally recently and with 148 successful dribbles to his name - only Robert Pires has recorded more - he will be a smouldering threat.
In the defence, Tottenham's heart has been Sol Campbell, but with rumours of a Bosman-style exit on the horizon the fans' faith will be tested. It is worth noting though that his central defensive partner Chris Perry has recorded 88 successful tackles. Not just more than Campbell, but in fact the sixth highest total all Premiership players.
Alex Ferguson won't want his side to lose three league games in a row, no matter how insignificant, but if you think that Tottenham can get a win over the champions then Spurs Bet are offering 13/8. Spurs have won two and drawn one of their last three home games against United so it might be worth considering.
This could well be a nice spectacle to end the season. Next year will be Ferguson's last in charge of the Red Devils and he will be hell-bent on success on all fronts. Glenn Hoddle will need a while to sort out his team - patience, after all, is a virtue - but in the mean-time fans should remember that despite his religious leaning, he wasn't actually born in a manger, but in time could make this side more than just stable performers.
