Improving Manchester United and Spurs do battle on New Year’s Day looking to keep their recent good form going.

Both sides ended 2013 in strong form with United currently on a 6 game winning run and Spurs unbeaten since the appointment of Tim Sherwood in both a caretaker and full time capacity.

Spurs have suffered a blow ahead of the game however with Brazilian midfielder Paulinho set to be miss the next four weeks. The International star was forced off against Stoke following a challenge from Charlie Adam and a statement from Spurs confirmed that the player has suffered ligament damage and faces a month out.

Paulinho joins Sandro (calf), Andros Townsend (hamstring), Jan Vertonghen (ankle) and Younes Kaboul (ankle) on the sidelines although Kyle Walker will return following suspension.

Sherwood has deployed a 4-4-2 formation since his appointment and has been rewarded by a more potent attacking display from his charges. Seven goals in three goals, two of which have come from the recalled Emmanuel Adebayor has lifted the gloom that hung over the club prior to the departure of Andre Villas-Boas.

Adebayor and Roberto Soldado are one against set to lead the lines with Christian Eriksen and Aaron Lennon hoping to get the nod on the flanks ahead of Nacer Chadli and Erik Lamela.

United meanwhile could have Robin Van Persie on the bench. The Dutch International has returned to training following a thigh injury that saw him miss 5 games. The club are also hopeful that in-form Wayne Rooney will be able to shake off the groin injury that saw him miss the win over Norwich.

Definitely out are Marouane Fellaini (wrist), Nani (hamstring), Phil Jones (knee) and Rafael all remain however Antonio Valencia is available again after missing the clash with the Canaries through suspension.

The two clubs drew 2-2 when they met at the start of December when Wayne Rooney scored a brace.

Spurs claimed a famous 3-2 win at Old Trafford last season and with United winning just four of their 9 home games so far this season Sherwood will be hopeful of maintaining his unbeaten start.
