Harry: United is not invincible

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp does not think that Manchester United are good enough to remain unbeaten for the entire season.

United are eight points clear of fourth-placed Tottenham, with a game in hand, after avoiding defeat so far this season to threaten Arsenal's 2003/04 unbeaten record.

But Redknapp thinks that there are chinks in the armour of Sir Alex Ferguson's team and he hopes that Spurs can be the side who expose the weaknesses.

The Tottenham boss said in his column in The Sun: "As good as they are I do not think they are good enough to go through the whole season unbeaten.

"Even if they win the Premier League title this season, Arsenal are the original Invincibles and their record is going to stay intact.

"Of course, I'd love it if it will be my Tottenham team that ends United's unbeaten run on Sunday and we have a chance of doing it.

"We can bring them down to earth and for the sake of the title race I bet everyone who doesn't support Man Utd will be hoping we do."


But as Redknapp plots United's downfall he will not be picking the brains of former Old Trafford star David Beckham, who has been training with Spurs this week.

He said: "We have had David Beckham training with us this week and he grew up at Old Trafford.

"But I wouldn't dream of asking him if he knows any secrets about his old club that could help us. It wouldn't be right."
