Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp admits he's ready to face FA Cup opponents Manchester United with "the weakest team" he can field.

After scraping into the Carling Cup final against Burnley last night, Redknapp said: "That group I've got tonight is the only group I've got to go to Old Trafford with. I can't risk players because we have got Stoke on Tuesday.

"So I'll go to play United with the weakest team I can possibly find. That's how it's going to be I'm afraid.

"I've got no one else and I've got to rest people. I can't afford it, we're in a relegation battle.

"We need to get some squad players in who will come in and give me everything and be proud to play for Tottenham."
