Man. Utd out for revenge against Spurs
Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said the club is all out to revenge the 6-1 home defeat to Tottenham as the club visit London on Sunday.
The coach admitted that United’s “pride was hurt” after the defeat in October.
United, second in the table, travel to north London looking to put their joint-heaviest Premier League defeat behind them as sixth-placed Spurs attempt to secure a top-four finish with eight games left to play.
Reflecting on that low moment, Solskjaer said the loss has given United an extra spark going into Sunday’s match at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
“Yeah, I think the players will remember that game with a lot of pain.
“Our pride was hurt. The manner in which we lost, we were not ourselves, and we know that. We gave ourselves a difficult game by having 10 men. Pre-season was short and we were not up to the standard required, but we were so poor.
“I’m sure we will see some players looking to prove that they are better than that. The biggest thing we have improved on is our fitness levels. We were way short of them. It was our third game of the season.
“We got conned into a red card, that’s something we need to be aware of. We cannot react like this. We know that in games, in these situations, you can be wound up and we have learnt a lot from that.
“I’m sure we will have a better performance this time around,” he said.
