Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has challenged his players to improve on their disappointing record at Old Trafford when they take to Manchester United this evening
Mauricio Pochettino has lost every match at Old Trafford as Spurs boss, while Tottenham have suffered more defeats at the home of Manchester United than any other side in Premier League history.
However Pochettino has urged his team to pick up a positive result on Monday night.
“It is so important for us because after four years of struggling to compete there – more than compete, to get a good, positive result – it is important to go there on Monday and try to win the game and show us that we can beat Manchester there,” Pochettino told Sky Sports News.
“It will be tough, of course, because Manchester are a great team with unbelievable players and one of the best managers in the world. But is a massive challenge and I said at the beginning of the season that this will be the toughest season after starting my managerial career nine, 10 years ago.
“And I feel it will be a massive challenge as we will face a team that is very good and have unbelievable players and of course, to play at Old Trafford is never easy.”
