Manchester United vs. Tottenham: Premier League – Match Preview

Two of the top three meet in the Premier League’s early kick-off on Saturday as Tottenham travel to face Manchester United.

Manchester United were beaten for the first time this season last time out, as they were surprisingly defeated away at Huddersfield Town.

They progressed into the last eight of the EFL Cup on Tuesday night, with Jesse Lingard scoring twice away at Swansea City.

Spurs were stunned by West Ham at Wembley, blowing a 2-0 lead at the break as their London rivals recovered to progress 3-2.

In the league though they moved level with United in second as they thrashed Liverpool 4-1 last weekend, with Harry Kane scoring twice.

Match history

Spurs were too strong in the reverse fixture, easing to a 2-1 win, with the scoreline a lot closer than it should have been.

Team news
Manchester United hope to have both Eric Bailly and Phil Jones fit for the visit of Spurs on Saturday.

Their left side has been the main issue this year and neither left-back of left sided attacker are certain starters.

Tottenham will be without key man Kane here due to a minor muscle problem, with Heung Min Son likely to lead the line.

Danny Rose and Mousa Dembele returned from injury against the Hammers, although expect both to be on the bench here.

Expected starting XI’s
Manchester United (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Valencia, Bailly, Jones, Young; Matic, Herrera; Mata, Mkhitaryan, Rashford; Lukaku
Tottenham (3-5-1-1): Lloris; Alderweireld, Sanchez, Vertonghen; Trippier, Winks, Dier, Alli, Aurier; Eriksen; Son
