Teddy Sheringham gives prediction on Tottenham’s clash with Man Utd with both his former clubs in desperate need of win

POKER-LOVING Teddy Sheringham cannot call Manchester United’s trip to Tottenham — because both sides could do with a royal flush out right now.

Sheringham dabbled in Texas hold’em after his career holding off defenders to score 372 goals.

But asked for a straight answer on how Saturday’s clash will play out between two of his former sides, he folded.

The 51-cap England striker, 55, told SunSport: “Notoriously United do very well coming down to Tottenham. That was the feeling among the fans on Sunday . . . ‘It’s OK, we always beat Spurs’.

“Tottenham are having a tough time as well. I wouldn’t know where to lay my hat on that one — and I’m a gambling man! I wouldn’t put my faith in either.”

United are still reeling from Sunday’s embarrassing 5-0 Old Trafford hammering by Liverpool and boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be desperate for a reaction.

But with the attacking talent at his disposal, one of his biggest struggles is getting them all in.

Sheringham, speaking on behalf of 888sport, said: “When you’ve got so many very good players, it’s hard to keep them all happy.

“There are big egos in there, big egos not playing. It just needs one of them to start slagging the manager behind the scenes and that filters through to others.

“Sometimes you can have too many top players at a club.”

Spurs have lost four of their last six in the league but talk surrounding Nuno Espirito Santo’s job is on hold while Solskjaer comes under the microscope.

Sheringham, Tottenham’s tenth-highest scorer (124), is concerned with the form of skipper Harry Kane, 28, who has just one league goal since his summer switch to Manchester City collapsed.

He added: “Kane needs to get his head down.

“His demeanour has changed. He needs to get his head around the fact he’s a Tottenham player and focus on what he does best — leading the team by example.”
