Football Focus - 13/12/2008
Manish Bhasin, Mark Lawrenson and Lee Dixon look ahead to the weekend's football action, which includes a mouth-watering Barclays Premier League clash between Tottenham and Manchester United. Spurs were rejuvenated under new manager Harry Redknapp, who has enjoyed some stand-out results against United in the course of his long career, most famously his FA Cup giant-killing success with Bournemouth back in 1984. Hull's away record has been most impressive in their debut season in the top flight but today they face an awesome task at Anfield, where they meet Liverpool. Meanwhile, there are a couple of north-west derbies, with Everton travelling to Manchester City and Wigan hosting Blackburn.
In the SPL, Celtic host Hearts, having beaten them 2-0 at Tynecastle earlier this season, while Rangers are at Dundee United, who came within a minute of a shock win at Ibrox when the sides met in November.
There is also a look back at the midweek Champions League games as well as a look ahead to Uefa Cup fixtures.
