Manchester United vs. Tottenham: Premier League – Match Preview

Two sides with numerous absentees meet on Sunday as Manchester United entertain Tottenham.

Manchester United suffered a 2-1 loss in their last Premier League match, going down with a limp display at Nottingham Forest.

They did ease through in the FA Cup though, recording a comfortable 2-0 win away to Wigan Athletic.

Tottenham also progressed as they edged past fellow Premier League side Burnley, thanks to a superb Pedro Porro winner.

Son Heung-Min was among the scorers in their last league match as they beat Bournemouth 3-1 in an entertaining affair.

Team news
Lisandro Martinez is edging towards a return for Manchester United, but it appears Sunday will come too soon.

Casemiro remains out and they have numerous doubts, including Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw, Christian Eriksen and Antony.

Micky van de Ven and Cristian Romero could both return to the heart of Spurs defence here having missed decent periods due to injury.

Son, Sarr and Yves Bissouma are all on international duty; however new signings Timo Werner and Radu Dragusin should make the squad.

Expected starting XI’s
Manchester United (4-2-3-1): Onana; Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Evans, Dalot; Mainoo, McTominay; Garnacho, Fernandes, Rashford; Hojlund
Tottenham (4-2-3-1): Vicario; Porro, Romero, Van de Ven, Udogie; Skipp, Bentancur; Johnson, Kulusevski, Werner; Richarlison


Result: Tottenham
United are in horrible form and even missing a few key players, Spurs could have too much

Correct Score: 1-2
Pretty confident there will be goals at Old Trafford on Sunday

Anytime Goalscorer: Pedro Porro
The full-back has threatened all season long and ended his drought in the FA Cup
