Hugo and Jan on United test

Posted on 14 March 2015  - 14:15

Hugo Lloris and Jan Vertonghen are relishing the challenge of facing United at Old Trafford on Sunday.


We travel to Old Trafford sitting sixth in the Premier League, three points behind fourth-placed United. Going into the weekend, there were only five points between Arsenal in third and Southampton in seventh.

We're unbeaten in five matches against United with victories in our last two visits to Old Trafford. We played out an evenly-matched goalless draw at the Lane back in December.

"The game against United is one that we’re all looking forward to playing in," said goalkeeper Hugo, who has captained the team in our last 17 Premier League fixtures.

"These are the games all players want to play in - against a team like United in a big stadium like Old Trafford."

Jan, who has lined-up in front of Hugo in those 17 matches, added: "This is a massive game for both teams and I hope we can do well there again.

"We took six points last week, we're closer to the top teams and with our form and how we're playing at the moment, we go to United with confidence."
