“It was a good night for everyone. On Saturday it will be a really tough game and we have to show we’re becoming stronger.”
Tottenham, in seventh, are now just two points behind United with two games in hand, so there will be more pressure on the hosts to deliver a result on Saturday.
The manner of Spurs’ triumph over Everton has edged them above the Red Devils’ goal difference, too, giving them all the momentum heading into the meeting in M16.
Recording a third straight Premier League win against United this weekend would all but end Ralf Rangnick’s side’s top-four hopes but potentially act as a platform for Conte to guide Spurs back amongst Europe’s elite.
