Pochettino: Return of 'encyclopedia' Ferguson massive for United

Tottenham host Manchester United at Wembley Stadium this weekend as they look for their second big win of the week, having also beaten Chelsea in the first-leg of their League Cup semi-final.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino says his chairman Daniel Levy is a tough man for rival clubs to negotiate with, but he feels he has an advantage over his predecessors in his own dealings with his boss because he doesn't have an agent. I think that's our strength as well, going forward and attacking as a team when you look at us now, the way we've played.

"If they're clever and keep the ball, speeding up the game when possible and exploiting any space, they have a chance to defeat Tottenham".

With Tottenham third in the league 10 points clear of sixth-plaed United and in the title race, the days when Ferguson coule tell his players "It's only Spurs" when the sides met are over.

"It'll be exciting. Obviously, as a Man United team, we're there to entertain and get people off their seats, so that's what we'll be looking to do".

Pochettino has been heavily linked with the managerial job at Old Trafford for many years, and that speculation intensified when Jose Mourinho was relieved of his duties in December.

Since returning to United, where he played as a striker between 1996 and 2007, Solskjaer has spoken repeatedly of the need to return to the attractive, attacking football that they played for much of Alex Ferguson's reign. "They have always been entertaining so hopefully we can put on a show and put on a performance".

With both sides in rich attacking form - Tottenham have netted 15 times in their last four league games and United 14 - Berbatov expects a high-scoring game. "We were in a very bad place and started to walk, we crossed and jumped, up, up and up, and we arrived at the President's (box) and found two seats".

"I think he was one of, or was the best manager in the world, in the history of football, and to have the possibility to see him every day is massive".

Spurs have won nine of their last 11 games in all competitions, with the only defeat being a surprise 3-1 reverse at home to Wolves.

"Spurs are a great barometer of how far United have come under Ole".
