Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino challenges his side to end their miserable run at Old Trafford when they take on Manchester United on Monday night.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has challenged his side to end their miserable run against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Monday night.

Spurs will travel to their top-four rivals having lost each of their last four visits to Old Trafford without scoring a single goal.

However, Pochettino pointed to April's victory over Chelsea - their first at Stamford Bridge since 1990 - as evidence that they are capable of overcoming such hoodoos.

"That's not perception. It's reality. We lost four games, we didn't score a goal, we didn't win a point. But Chelsea last season was a good example. After 28 years we won. Why not? There are many negative things but you need to believe and I believe more than ever that we can win. We're winners," Pochettino told reporters at his pre-match press conference.

"The winners sometimes lose but if your attitude is right, you'll win more than you lose. We're working hard. After four years, we still need to improve winning some [against] clubs away from home, like United. We played some games well, some not so well. It's a massive challenge for us to go to United and show we're capable of winning.

"We are a big club of course, we need to be bigger of course and we are on the way to be a bigger club. But after four years, many people say we haven't won anything. That is history, we are trying to set the basis to win, we are breaking records about good results but of course it is not enough.

"Sometimes we are a victim of our success, but it would be perfect to win again and settle after 10 years to win the first three games. The objective is to win."

Spurs are bidding to win their opening three Premier League games for the first time since 2009-10.
