Poker fan Teddy Sheringham can’t connect to Manchester United’s trip to Tottenham – because both sides can do so with a royal take out now.
Sheringham featured in Texas Hold’em after his run slamming into defenders to score 372 goals.
But asking for a straight answer on how Saturday’s game between two former teams would be played, he pulled out.
The 51-caps England striker, 55, told SunSport: “United is known to be doing very well after their move to Tottenham. That was the feeling among the fans on Sunday…” It’s okay, we We always beat Tottenham.”
“Spurs are going through a tough time too. I don’t know where to put my hat on that – and I’m a gambler! I wouldn’t put my faith in either of them.”
United are still suffering from the embarrassing 5-0 blow at Old Trafford on Sunday by Liverpool, and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be in desperate need of a reaction.
But with the offensive talent at his disposal, one of his biggest struggles is getting them all involved.
Sheringham, speaking on behalf of 888sportHe said, “When you have so many good players, it’s hard to make them all happy.

“There’s a big ego out there, and a big ego that doesn’t play. It just takes one of them to start taking the manager off the scenes and pass that on to the others.”
“Sometimes you can have a lot of great players in a club.”
Tottenham have lost four of their last six league matches but talk of Nuno Espirito Santo’s job is on hold while Solskjaer is being monitored.
Sheringham, Tottenham’s tenth leading scorer (124), is concerned about the shape of captain Harry Kane, 28, who has scored just one league goal since the collapse of his summer transfer to Manchester City.
He added: “Kane needs to lower his head.
“His behavior has changed. He needs to get around the fact that he’s a Tottenham player and focus on what he does best – leading the team by example.”
