Manchester United captain Harry Maguire is relishing the prospect of going up against England teammate Harry Kane when United travel to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium tomorrow afternoon.
Harry Maguire said “It’s a great game to be involved in. We have more than enough to go there and get the three points. It’s two squads that you expect to be fighting at the top end of the table. We’ve got ourselves into a good position and they’re wanting to bridge that gap. I want to play in the biggest games possible against the best players; that’s why I joined this club. Harry [Kane] is one of those. I know him from England really well. He’s a top striker, one of the best in the world and he does it season after season, scores goals after goals. He’ll be ready for battle and I’ll be ready for battle. May the best man win. It’s not just individuals; it’s a team effort. As a defensive unit we’ve got to be strong, go there and get a clean sheet and give the team the best opportunity to win the game.”
In 14 career appearances against United, Kane has scored just four goals, but all of them have come in victories against the Old Trafford club.
