United travel south to face a resurgent Spurs in Saturday's early-evening clash...
Form Guide: Unbeaten since early November in all competitions, United have won three of the last four Premier League outings - most recently in last weekend's last-gasp win over Sunderland. Spurs were victorious at West Ham on Monday evening, taking Harry Redknapp's league record to five wins from eight games.
Ins and Outs: United are definitely missing Wayne Rooney and Patrice Evra through suspension, while there are question marks over the availability of Cristiano Ronaldo, Michael Carrick, Rio Ferdinand and Dimitar Berbatov, who are all carrying minor injuries. The hosts' problems are minor by comparison. Fraizer Campbell cannot play against his parent club. Skipper Ledley King may play, despite severe knee problems, while right-back Alan Hutton is definitely out with a fractured metatarsal and Giovani Dos Santos is missing with an ankle knock.
Star Man: Darren Bent is the hosts' biggest attacking threat, but Redknapp will be desperate to have club captain Ledley King fit to take his place in the centre of defence.
Rivals Watch: Middlesbrough v Arsenal (Sat 12:45) Liverpool v Hull (Sat 15:00), Chelsea v West Ham (Sun 16:00).
