A festival of football this weekend sees no fewer than three local derbies and an epic battle at the top of table at White Hart Lane. Sir Alex Ferguson believes his United side face a tough ‘Challenge’ in North London against a Tottenham side that the Scot believes is the best he has known in all his time in England.
In the papers this morning there has been a mixed bag of stories that includes Kenny Dalglish looking forward to Mersey derby; Carlo Ancelotti sets Chelsea 80pts total, while West Ham are reportedly lining up Martin O’Neill.
