Tottenham Hotspur are relishing hosting Manchester United at White Hart Lane this weekend, forward Heung-Min Son has explained.

Spurs played out a 1-1 draw away at Liverpool last weekend and the tough games keep coming for the north London outfit as Louis van Gaal takes his Manchester United side south.

Son believes that Spurs played well at Anfield against Liverpool, just lacking a little luck, and he cannot wait to lock horns with Manchester United on Sunday.

"I thought we played well last week and we were unlucky to draw at Liverpool", he told Spurs' official site.

"We’ll keep going. We’re all looking forward to playing Manchester United", the South Korea international continued.


Manchester United won the earlier fixture between the two sides this season, edging Spurs out 1-0 at Old Trafford, but since then both sides have had differing fortunes; as Spurs battle for the Premier League title, Manchester United are simply aiming for a top four finish. 

Chasing Premier League leaders Leicester City, second placed Spurs will be desperate for all three points against Van Gaal's side this Sunday.
