Two stuttering Barclays Premier League giants lock horns on BT Sport this Sunday (December 1st), as Tottenham Hotspur welcome Manchester United to White Hart Lane.

Spurs come into the game having been on the receiving end of their worst defeat in 17 years - a 6-0 drubbing away to the Red Devils' local rivals Manchester City - at the weekend.

Meanwhile, David Moyes' uninspiring start to life as Manchester United boss continued with a 2-2 draw away at Cardiff City, which saw his side concede a last-minute equaliser.

Both clubs find themselves in unfamiliar territory after 12 games of the 2013-14 season - outside the all-important European places.

Shot-shy Spurs are among the division's lowest scorers, having registered just nine goals in the Barclays Premier League this season.

And with no goals in their last three league outings, manager André Villas-Boas could be tempted to recall the out-of-favour Jermaine Defoe to his starting line-up.

David Moyes faces a more complex problem - attempting to build a new United side in his own image, against a backdrop of huge expectations and underperforming players.

Both sides will be gunning for all three points at the weekend, as they aim to kick-start their respective seasons.

Spurs' defender Jan Vertonghen believes his side can return to form with a win on Sunday, heaping more misery on the ex-Everton manager in the process.

"We can solve the problem. We will talk and bounce back on Sunday against Manchester United," he stated.

"It is a good thing we play United next at home. I know we have the support of our crowd and we can win that game."

BT Sport viewers can watch Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester United at 12pm on Sunday December 1st, live on BT Sport 1.

There is plenty of other football action for viewers to look forward to at the weekend, starting with Wolfsburg v Hamburg from the Bundesliga at 7:30pm on Friday November 29th.

The weekend's other game from Germany is Schalke 04 v VFB Stuttgart, which airs at 5:30pm on Saturday November 30th, live on BT Sport 1.

Genoa v Torino gets the weekend's Italian football coverage underway at 7:45pm on BT Sport 2, ahead of a Sunday Serie A triple-header featuring Catania v AC Milan (11:30pm), Inter Milan v Sampdoria (2pm) and Juventus v Udinese (7:45pm).

There are also two games to look forward to from France's Ligue 1 on Sunday - with Bastia taking on Evian TG at 4pm, before top side PSG play host to Lyon at 8pm.

Both games will be aired live on BT Sport 2.
