Sports Mole previews Sunday's match between Tottenham and Manchester United as Spurs look to complete a historic double over the Red Devils.

Tottenham Hotspur could claim a rare double over league leaders Manchester United when they face the Red Devils at White Hart Lane on Sunday.

Spurs beat United 3-2 at Old Trafford earlier this season, the only points that Sir Alex Ferguson's men have dropped at home.

Tottenham go into the match in good form having lost just one of their last 13 matches in all competitions, leaving them fourth in the Premier League table with the potential of moving third with a win.

United are also in imperious form having picked up 28 points from a possible 30 in their last 10 league games, giving them a seven-point lead at the top of the table.

Spurs, who haven't beaten United at White Hart Lane since 2001, will be without Sandro, Emmanuel Adebayor and Younes Kaboul, while William Gallas is also a doubt.

United will be missing Darren Fletcher, but Jonny Evans, Nemanja Vidic and Ashley Young could play some part after shaking off their respective injuries.
