Harry Redknapp insists Manchester United will not complete their Premier League campaign without suffering a defeat.
United have successfully negotiated the first 20 games of the season without losing a single game, and there has been talk that Sir Alex Ferguson’s men could replicate the “Invincibles” of Arsenal from the 2003/04 campaign.
But Redknapp does not believe the Old Trafford outfit will end the season with a zero in the losses column, and he is hoping his Tottenham side will hand them their first defeat on Sunday.
The Spurs boss wrote in The Sun: “Alex Ferguson knows his wines, but this won't be a vintage season for Manchester United on the pitch.
“As good as they are I do not think they are good enough to go through the whole season unbeaten.
“No one's invincible this season in my opinion. Results already have shown that.
“United have done well to get past the halfway mark without losing a single match - but it's just a matter of time before they do.”
And looking ahead to this weekend’s encounter, Redknapp has insisted he will not turn to David Beckham, who is currently training with Tottenham, for any tips on how to shoot down his former side.
Redknapp added: “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.
“The club has a place in his heart so it's not fair to put anyone in that position.”
