Mauricio Pochettino calls for bravery against Manchester United

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino urges his side "to be brave" when they welcome in-form Manchester United in the Premier League.

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has said that his team need "to be brave" if they are to overcome Manchester United in the Premier League on Sunday.

Spurs have won their last three matches in the league, but welcome a United side that has taken 22 points from their last eight matches.

"We need this mentality to go into this game, to be brave, to try to fight in every action and try to play better than them," Pochettino told the club's official website.

"Manchester United are in a very good moment like us and we have a tough game ahead. We need to be clever and first to rest after a big effort at Leicester.

"It will be a great atmosphere, a day for all the families to enjoy and in front of us, another very good team, but we will try to get the three points. We have showed character in every game and it's important to keep this feeling."

The corresponding match last season ended in a 2-2 draw, but Spurs won 2-1 at Old Trafford later in the campaign.
