Man Utd v Spurs

Man Utd v Spurs

Sparks are set to fly at the Theatre of dreams when Manchester United lock horns with Tottenham Hotspurs in the English Premier League.

The match, which will be a Monday night spectacle albeit as part of this weekends’ round of fixtures will see the Red devils back in action at Old Trafford after a disappointing outing on the road last weekend.

United’s title credibility was heavily dented after Jose Mourinho’s charges suffered a shocking 3-2 defeat away to Brighton and Hove Albion last Sunday. The Red devils went to Brighton hoping to make it two wins out of two, but that was not to be as the Seagulls had other ideas of their own.

The Old Trafford side started the game on the front foot as they looked to make their presence felt but Brighton soon took control of proceedings, as they heavily exposed United’s defensive frailties. The hosts made the first stab through Glen Murray who latched onto a Solomon March cross for the opener in the 25th minute.

Matters however moved from bad to worse for United as they fell behind to a second goal just two minutes later through Shane Duffy. Romelu Lukaku pulled one back to reduce the deficit to one goal, but what could have been a potential comeback went south as Brighton scored a penalty through Pascal Gross to restore the savory two-goal cushion right before the break.

Chris Hughton’s side held on for the better part of the second half, with United’s lack of creativity and adventure upfront working to his advantage. Paul Pogba scored from the spot at the very tail end of the match but the goal proved to be a little too late, as Brighton clinched a well-deserved win against the 20-time champions.

The loss added to Mourinho’s woes at the club as recent off field scuffles have taken center stage at the Manchester club. Rumors of a rift between Jose and Pogba have refused to go away while the lack of the much needed additions during the English summer transfer window has led many pundits to believe the club’s hierarchy is not fully behind the Portuguese.

Spurs on the other hand head into the match on the back end of a convincing 3-1 win against newly promoted Fulham, with goals by Lucas Moura, Kieran Trippier and Harry Kane proving enough to secure three vital points at Wembley – the highlight of the game however being when Harry Kane finally broke his August goal drought.

Spurs have made a strong start to the season, even with renewed talks of a possible title clinching season, although Mauricio Pochettino will face a stern test from both Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola in the race.

Manchester United have a few injury doubts in the build up to the match. Alexis Sanchez could be out for a second consecutive game after picking a “small” knock right after the first week of EPL action while Nemanja Matic, Luke Shaw and Antonio Valencia are also doubts for the match.

Spurs in stark contrast seem to have a clean bill of health with all of the first team available for selection.

Manchester United vs. Tottenham betting predictions

The match unequivocally promises to be an interesting one with an in-form spurs taking on a struggling Manchester United.

History however seems to be on United’s side, as Spurs have only won twice at old Trafford in the Premier League era, with the last victory coming in 2014.
