Vertonghen convinced Tottenham can snap Man Utd hoodoo

Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen insists they can break their Manchester United hoodoo this weekend.

Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen insists they can break their Manchester United hoodoo this weekend.

They haven’t won a league game at United since 1989 and have drawn just four times since then.

Vertonghen, who helped Spurs to a first home win against QPR on Sunday, said: “I’m really looking forward to my first game there with Tottenham.

“I think we’re strong enough to do nice things there. A lot of players are injured and when everyone is back I think we’ll have one of the strongest teams in the league.

“We’ve played well away from home and we’ve got a lot of confidence, especially after our first home win.”
