Ashley Young is wary ahead of Manchester United's clash with Tottenham as he believes Harry Redknapp's side will be looking to bounce back from their 5-2 defeat against Arsenal last weekend.Despite defeat against Arsene Wenger's charges at the Emirates, Spurs have a four-point cushion over their north London rivals ahead of their match against United at White Hart Lane.
“I think you expect a reaction from any team that has been beaten like that.” Young told reporters.
“They are going to be at home and they will want to turn around that defeat. We know they are going to be up for the game. Everybody has setbacks but the way you respond is important. We responded magnificently after the defeat to City.”
Young also praised the efforts of Spurs boss Redknapp and stated that he understands why the former Portsmouth manager is being tipped for the vacant England role.
“Tottenham have done magnificently. When Harry took over, they were near the ­bottom and he has taken them right up the league, he is a great manager, that’s obviously why he is being tipped for the England job," he said.
"They have been pushing us top two Manchester clubs all the way. But if we show the confidence we have shown, I am sure we can get the result. On the road this season we have done fantastically but we know it is not going to be easy.”
