Villas-Boas: we're ready for Old Trafford
Andre Villas-Boas accepts his side will face a "different kind of challenge altogether" when domestic action resumes at Manchester United on Sunday after a 2-0 Champions League win over Bayer Leverkusen last night. With one eye on sunday's encounter, captain John Terry was rested completely and Frank Lampard on the bench. While Villas-Boas may have been happy enough with the final result, he knows things are about to go to a whole new level this weekend. "We face United perhaps in their most tremendous moment of motivation and flair and style," said the manager. "Motivation will be the key factor in the game, and the capacity of people to transcend themselves and take the game through and come back from Old Trafford with a win. We will go there to try to win it. Let's see how it happens. It's going to be a very, very good early-season game for the Premier League."
