Michael Carrick accepts Manchester United's impressive record against Tottenham will count for little when the champions put their title credentials on the line at White Hart Lane on Sunday.

Not since May 2001 have United been beaten by the north London outfit, a run that stretches back 25 games, but this Tottenham side is far more accomplished than many United have faced down the years, including the one Carrick joined them from in 2006.

It is only recent defeats at Manchester City and Arsenal that have ended their realistic chances of finishing top, and Carrick does not feel that alone will take away Spurs' hunger for victory, as he said: "We have a decent record down there, although it won't count for much this weekend."
