Sir Alex Ferguson laughed off comments made by one ‘journalist’ ahead of our Premiership victory over Tottenham Hotspur, which claimed this was our worst team in years.

Mark YSB Lawrenson claimed that the story of our season would be other teams bringing the game to us in his article for The Mirror.

Ferguson claimed Lawrenson’s comments were a ‘beauty’ and mocked them by claiming he could be right – we might only win the league title this year!

Tottenham entertaining Manchester United is one of those real glamour games that you look forward to each season. But rarely will United go there with so many doubts about their potential this season. This is surely one of the weakest United squads for some years.

Tottenham are in great form, Harry Redknapp has once again unlocked potential in promising attacking players and they are terrific to watch. It will be a cracking game but United will not have it all their own. And that will probably be the story of their season.
