Sunday will be the in-form Son Heung-min's final match for Spurs before jetting off to the Asian Games and his performances over the past month or so make him a sure-fire pick, while Christian Eriksen on the opposite flank remains one of the best playmakers in the entire division.

Manchester United have a great squad with great players with a lot of quality.

Former United and Norway striker Solskjaer has won all five of his matches in charge and Pochettino said the Ferguson effect can not be dismissed ahead of Sunday's Premier League clash.

"Daniel is not an easy person to do business with", Pochettino said.

"I have good memories of him", said Pochettino of Solskjaer.

"To play now in our new stadium, of course always you need to adapt and find different ways to operate". It's hard because I'm the manager and he can not upset me.

"I have good memories because I remember when he scored after 90 minutes at the Camp Nou, I was with Tony Jimenez, my goalkeeping coach - we were there at the Camp Nou in 1999", Pochettino said.

"Today the Premier League is so competitive and for Tottenham to go to, I don't know, Southampton and sign a player like they used to do, like with Gareth Bale, today it's so hard", he said. It's the same situation that happens with big clubs.

"Today it's so hard to do business in between the English clubs because in the end the market has changed a lot".

The English Premier League is back this weekend and on Sunday, Mauricio Pochettino men host Manchester United in what will be a thrilling encounter between the two fierce rivals.

"But what I do expect is to see chances and goals at both ends in what promises to be a cracking game and a true barometer of where this new United are in relation to the other elite Premier League sides".

Gone are the days when the Red Devils used to enjoy playing Tottenham away from home under Sir Alex Ferguson.

He is a fantastic goalscorer and one of the best in the world but I have got a couple that I am happy to work with.

"For him it's a massive motivation or challenge to manage Manchester United, like for me it's a massive challenge to be in front for this football club, Tottenham".
