Tottenham vs. Manchester United: Premier League – Match Preview

Two sides in desperate need of a result meet in Saturday’s evening game as Tottenham entertain Manchester United.

Spurs were edged out by West Ham United last weekend, losing 1-0 thanks to a Michail Antonio winner.

Lucas Moura scored the only goal midweek as they advanced into the Quarter-Finals of the Carabao Cup, beating Burnley at Turf Moor.

Manchester United were embarrassed by rivals Liverpool in the previous game week, losing 5-0 in front of their home supporters.

Mohamed Salah’s ridiculous start to the season continued with a hat-trick, with Naby Keita and Diogo Jota also among the goals.

Team news
Bryan Gil went off injured in the midweek cup tie; however he was unlikely to start on Saturday regardless.

Despite the loss at West Ham, Spurs could name an unchanged XI.

Raphael Varane has returned to training and may well be risked given the pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Paul Pogba is banned following his red card against Liverpool and we could see some changes following the 5-0 loss.

Expected starting XI’s
Tottenham (4-2-3-1): Lloris; Emerson, Romero, Dier, Reguilon; Skipp, Hjojberg; Lucas, Ndombele, Son; Kane

Manchester United (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Maguire, Telles; Matic, Fred; Greenwood, Fernandes, Rashford; Ronaldo


Result: Draw
Two bad teams here, a draw looks best bet with neither good enough to score a winner

Correct Score: 1-1
The last four matches between the two sides have seen both teams score

Anytime Goalscorer: Heung Min Son
Son scored three goals in the two meetings last term and is probably the most in form player on the pitch
