Man Utd boss Ferguson backs Tottenham to crack top four

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson says Tottenham can break into the top four.

He told manutd.com: "I watched a couple of videos yesterday and they'll be a handful for us," Sir Alex said. "But that's the nature of the Premier League. Hopefully I can pick the right team and get a good result.

"I think Tottenham can break into the top four. Harry's brought in a few of his own types of players, players he's familiar with like Peter Crouch and Jermain Defoe.

"He's now got Nico Kranjcar as well from Portsmouth and Wilson Palacios from Wigan, who was a good signing and brought some steel into the midfield.

"They've really started well this season there's a good degree of experience there. I think Tottenham definitely have a realistic chance of breaking into the top four. Them and City are ahead of the rest, I think... then it's Everton and Aston Villa."
