There will be no holding back from plucky Villarreal as they get ready to 'suffer' for three Champions League points against Manchester United.

That's the defiant message from ex- Tottenham defender, Juan Foyth, who completed his £13.5million switch to the La Liga side during this summer window.

Foyth spent last season on loan with the Yellow Submarine and has featured 39 times for them all-told.

Indeed, the 13-cap Argentina international played against United in THAT heart-breaking Europa League showpiece defeat in Gdansk - as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer fell agonisingly short in his quest to win a first trophy for the Old Trafford giants.

Villarreal, meanwhile, managed to hold table-topping Real Madrid to a draw in their most recent fixture.

Amid a bizarre start to the campaign, the side managed by former Arsenal coach Unai Emery are unbeaten over six games - but have only picked up eight points.

So does Foyth think they have what it takes to upset United, once again, at their famous Old Trafford home?

Speaking to Spanish publication AS, the former Tottenham player said: "Obviously these teams like Madrid, United, Chelsea or Atletico are very competitive, very complete and one of the best in the world, we all know that.

"But the idea is to continue working with the same humility, understanding the games, knowing how to suffer when it is necessary to suffer.

"And we are going to go with the desire to take the three points and position ourselves in the Champions League."
