Tottenham have a major decision to make about Christian Eriksen says Simon Stone

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has admitted he celebrated Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's late goal which brought Manchester United Champions League glory in 1999.

Heung-Min Son, Christian Eriksen and Harry Kane are in fine form for Tottenham, with England worldwide Kane being the joint top scorer in the Premier League with 14 goals.

The Reds have won all five of their games under the Norwegian's charge so far, although this weekends game against Spurs is quite comfortably the most hard that they will have faced.

"I think to be involved again, I think for him and for Manchester sure it's a massive important thing".

Furthermore, he does not consider a move to Manchester to be his decision alone to make, and will consult his family and coaching staff - who would all have to move with him.

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.

"Now on Sunday we are going to meet at Wembley when 20 years ago I was shouting a goal that he scored for Manchester United and now we are going to play them at Wembley".

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has backed Marcus Rashford to emulate Harry Kane and become one of the most feared strikers in the world.

"I can only judge the team today, and they are in very good form. He is an encyclopaedia of football". "We were in a very bad place and started to walk, we crossed and jumped, up, up and up, and we arrived at the President's (box) and found two seats".

"I was there when he scored", said Pochettino. "But the atmosphere was fantastic". For me, if there was one person that was easy to do business with it was Daniel, personally.

"For different reasons, because after almost five years, always you need to refresh the project, to find a different way".

With Tottenham third in the league 10 points clear of sixth-placed United and in the title race, the days when Ferguson coule tell his players "It's only Spurs" when the sides met are over. They were mid-table, and mid-table for facilities.
