Manchester United go into today's evening kickoff with the disappointing news that Michael Owen will be out for a further three weeks after suffering a hamstring injury picked up in training as he was trying to get himself back in shape after a groin injury. However Javier Hernandez is currently flying in red hot form as he scored both goals in the 2-1 win at Stoke last week and the winner against Wolves in the league cup on Tuesday and will give Sir Alex Ferguson a welcome morale boost after a shaky display by the team in some matches this campaign.

Hernandez's fine form is also crucial as Rooney is now expectected to be out for longer with his ankle injury. Owen Hargreaves and Giggs are also ruled out with injuries whilst Antonio Valencia is on the long term layoff list with a dislocated ankle he picked up in the champions league match with Rangers a month ago.

Whilst United have been shakey and let in goals to see them drop points against much lesser opposition this season, they still have not lost any of the 15 matches they've played in all competitions this year. They also have not lost to Tottenham in their last 18 meetings, with it last happening in May 2001. Tottenham have also failed to win at Old Trafford for almost 21 years, with Gary Linekar's solitary goal in a 1-0 win in December 1989 being the last occasion. Harry Redknapp has also never managed a side that has won at the Theatre Of Dreams so as you can see a win for Tottenham tomorrow would be legendary and would break many ducks which have been formed.
