15:52 May and, possibly, warmer weather may seem a long way off at the moment but United have confirmed an entry in the Blue Stars FIFA Youth Cup. The tournament takes place on 8 and 9 May and this year marks the 75th anniversary of the respected event in Zurich. It's for players born 1993 or later and a maximum of five players can be born after 1995. (AM)
14:22 Mark and I have just been to a press conference to announce the launch of a deal with United's new official paint partner, Kansai. Shinji Kagawa, Phil Jones and Danny Welbeck were in attendance and answered a few questions afterwards - look out for quotes on ManUtd.com. (JT)
12:45 Here below are Sir Alex's main points from the first half of the press conference - the part that isn't embargoed.
Team news: "We've got a strong squad. Jonny Evans still isn't available. He's not 100 per cent. Other than that, we're not too bad. We gave a lot of players a game on Wednesday and I thought they did well."
Tottenham match: "We now have a hard game on Sunday and Spurs are in good form. We have a fantastic record at White Hart Lane. There's always a good atmosphere and we enjoy playing there. But we can't take anything for granted. We have to perform."
Gareth Bale vs Ryan Giggs comparison: "I think Bale's a good player, yes. Giggs at 23... I don't think there was anyone better. It's difficult to say. They're different types of players, even though they're both left-footed and both play on the left."
