Fergie: change afoot at Spurs

" We saw last Sunday there is a wind of change at Tottenham, no question.

"The cup tie was terrifically open and for the first time in a few years at our ground there were some goals in the game.

"The games at Old Trafford have generally been one-goal affairs with more goals being reserved for White Hart Lane.

"Hopefully we can get the result we want but I'm expecting a very tough but open game."

Tottenham 1-2 Man Utd

Like Fergie said, it'll definitely be an open game, but don't expect to see there be too many goals. Berbatov proved at Old Trafford he can be a threat, and if Spurs bring their game to White Hart Lane, they will stand a chance. But Man Utd here look unstoppable with the impressive Ronaldo at the moment.

Goalscorer: Carlos Tevez
