Ole Gunnar Solskjaer faces his first real test as Manchester United boss as the Red Devils play championship contenders Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday. The Norwegian is expecting a difficult game and has singled out Harry Kane as the Spurs’s biggest threat.
“He is not bad is he? He is a fantastic goalscorer – one of the best in the world at playing up there. Then again I have got a couple that I am happy to work with. But he is also a top, top professional. I am sure whoever plays with him and trains with him can talk more about him but from the outside, [he is] a fantastic finisher.”
After five consecutive wins against lower placed teams, Tottenham will prove to be a different challenge for Solskjaer. “You get tested every single game in the Premier League – no doubt about it – but of course this is against a top, top side,” Solskjaer said. “If we want to get closer to them and go past them we need a good performance and a good result.”
