Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has his mind on revenge ahead of his side’s clash against Tottenham Hotspur at the weekend.

The Red Devils were humbled when Andre Villas-Boas brought his side to Old Trafford earlier in the season, with an own goal from Jonny Evans and one apiece for Gareth Bale and Clint Dempsey proving too much for United to overhaul.

Ferdinand certainly hasn’t forgotten that result, and insisted this morning that despite the horrendous weather, Manchester United’s players would be training hard ahead of the big game.

“Training in this weather is going to be crazy, but we’re getting ourselves ready for the game at the weekend against Tottenham Hotspur,” he said on social media sight Bubbly.

“A massive game, a hard game but one we’re looking forward to. They beat us at our place earlier this season, and we kind of owe them one.”

The 34-year-old will hope to be back in the side after missing the midweek FA Cup replay against West Ham United, with Ferdinand watching-on from the bench as Wayne Rooney’s goal sealed a 1-0 win.

As well as reaching the fourth round, Sir Alex Ferguson’s side sit seven-points clear at the top of the Premier League table ahead of the trip to White Hart Lane, although that lead could be cut to four if Manchester City can win at Fulham on Saturday.
