Giggs Expects Open Game

Ryan Giggs believes Saturday's match at White Hart Lane will live up to the fine traditions of Tottenham-United fixtures.

Football purists have often purred in the past about meetings between the glamour clubs of Greater Manchester and North London, pointing to the many creative sparks on both sides. Giggs himself is one such player and he can see several other exponents of the beautiful game in the current Spurs squad.

"They’ve got a lot of players who are on song like Aaron Lennon, and Jermain Defoe’s scoring the goals for them," Ryan told Red View.

"Spurs are also good defensively and this season they've started really well."

Giggs scored one of his greatest goals at Tottenham in the early years of his remarkable career and he's enjoyed many other entertaining contests there.

"Over the years there have been some great games," he added. "It’s a fixture that’s famous for two teams who like to play football the right way.

"White Hart Lane is a great place to go but it's always a tough game. We know we'll have to be at our best because we’re playing against a very good side."
