The Premier League pair’s showdown could be set to be a classic.The two sides will be determined to finalise their plans in another major pre-season test as they continue to look towards the start of the 2019-20 campaign in just a few weeks’ time.United have been heavily linked with moves for Sporting midfielder Bruno Fernandes and Leicester defender Harry Maguire among others but their manager is adamant that his squad would still thrive even without any further recruits.“I believe in these players,” Solskjaer stated . “I’m sure we could do well [without]. We’ve played well and had some good results in pre-season but it’s also about finding the way we want to play and get the team gelling.“We’ve got to be patient. It’s very important we get the right ones [new players]. I’ve not had a frustrating feeling at all.”Tottenham striker Harry Kane meanwhile feels that the addition of Frenchman Tanguy Ndombele could prove to be a massive boost for the London outfit this season as they look to push for silverware once again after coming within 90 minutes of a European crown in June.”He’s been great. He intercepted that ball very well and put it through to Lucas,” the England international told the media following his side’s win over Juventus , when Ndombele assisted Lucas Moura’s goal. “That’s a strength of his, playing that through ball, that forward pass.”That’s something we’ve missed over the last year or so, that really decisive pass in the final third. He looks like he can do that. With any player who comes in, he’s still learning how we play and the way the manager wants him to play. But he’s working hard. That’s all we can ask for.”last_img read more
