Tottenham v Man Utd: Match Preview

ZedContributor IDecember 12, 2008

Venue: White Hart Lane Date: Saturday, 13 December Kick-off: 1730 GMT

Rooney Lee

Man Utd travel to White Hart Lane tommorow with a number of key players doubful or suspended for the match.

While Rooney and Evra are suspended, Ferdinand, Carrick, and Berbatov are doubts. Though Carrick and Ferdinand should be at least on the bench. Ronaldo is fit though for the tie.

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson.

 ”I don’t know if Carrick is going to be fit, I don’t know if Berbatov is going to be fit,”

“Rio Ferdinand picked up a back spasm again, so that is a concern for us too. With the squad we’ve got I hope we can cope but I’d rather not have [the problems].”
