Man United vs Spurs EPL betting tips

All eyes will be on Old Trafford on Wednesday night as Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur take on Manchester United in a midweek English Premier League clash. It will be Mourinho’s first official visit to his former club since he left his managerial post last year.

Man United’s lacklustre performance over the weekend doesn’t even begin to tell the story of what has been a shocking season for the Red Devils. United’s recent string of disappointing results was extended with a 2-2 draw against newly promoted Aston Villa on home soil.

It is such outcomes that have seen United peter out over the course of the campaign. They now sit a staggering 22 points behind leaders Liverpool and eight points shy of fourth-placed Chelsea.

Tottenham, on the other hand, have received a new lease on life since bringing Mourinho on board about a fortnight ago. Way below Manchester United on the table at the time of his appointment, Spurs have maintained a 100 percent record under the stewardship of the Portuguese manager, winning three matches – including two EPL games – in all competitions.

Their most recent outing saw Tottenham claim a 3-2 win over a stubborn Bournemouth side to climb all the way to fifth on the table on 20 points, two points ahead of 10th-placed Manchester United.

While it will play a pivotal part in Tottenham’s quest to secure UEFA Champions League football next season, Wednesday’s trip to Manchester will, more than anything else, serve as Mourinho’s chance to do one over his former employers.

Manchester United team news

Paul Pogba has been ruled out of the match against Spurs, as the French midfielder has not yet fully recovered from an ankle injury sustained at the tail end of September, while Eric Bailly looks set to prolong his lengthy spell on the sidelines due to a knee injury. In better news, midfielders Scott McTominay and Nemanja Matic could be in contention for Wednesday’s spicy brawl.

Tottenham Hotspur team news

Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is still recovering from a nasty elbow injury, while Erik Lamela has not yet fully recovered from a thigh injury and could be held back for this weekend’s game against Burnley. Reserve keeper Michel Vorm is out with a calf strain and full-back Ben Davis won’t have a part to play against Manchester United due to an ankle problem.

Dele Alli goalscorer odds and tips

• Alli anytime goalscorer – +270 at Bovada
• Alli to score/Spurs to win – +450

Harry Kane may be Tottenham Hotspur’s leading scorer with 13 goals in all competitions, but there is little doubt that his teammate Dele Alli is the man of the moment. The 23-year-old has lifted his output markedly in the past two weeks, scoring three goals and providing an assist in his first three games under Jose Mourinho. Beaming with confidence, Alli could very well stretch his purple patch against the Red Devils.

Man United vs Spurs betting predictions

Manchester United may have gone eight home games without a defeat in all competitions, but there is no getting around the fact this is their worst-ever start to a Premier League season. Mourinho, meanwhile, seems to have restored the feel-good factor in the Tottenham dressing room, something that has been amiss since their Champions League final loss to Liverpool in June. Jose is looking to become the first Spurs manager to win his first three EPL matches in charge, but Man United, for all their problems, tend to rise to the occasion against tougher opposition.

Prediction: Both halves drawn – +400 at Bovada
