Pochettino hoping for a repeat of Chelsea performance at Old Trafford

Mauricio Pochettino and his Spurs side face Manchester United away tomorrow, knowing that the North London club have only won twice in their last 28 visits to Old Trafford.

However, Pochettino was quick to point out that Spurs had an even worse record at Stamford Bridge, the home of their London rivals Chelsea before they won their last season, so the Argentine coach is hopeful his team can put on a similar performance in Manchester tomorrow night.

“We didn’t score in four games. We didn’t take a point,” he told a pre-match press conference on Friday.

“At Chelsea last season was a good example. After 27/8 years we won a game. Why not? Always you need to believe and of course I believe more than ever that we can win.

“We are working hard. We are trying to be consistent and of course after four years many things can improve and one thing we need to improve is winning against some clubs away from home, like Manchester United.

“In the last four years we lose for different reasons, playing well, in some games not so well. It’s a massive challenge for us to go on Monday and show that we are capable of winning.”

If Spurs do beat Manchester United they will maintain their 100% record in the Premier League this season, having won their opening two games against Newcastle and Fulham.
