Tottenham vs Manchester United Preview
Before the season was halted by coVid19, Manchester United had put together an impressive 11 match unbeaten run in all competitions, during which time they kept nine clean sheets. They defeated Manchester city twice during this period and also defeated Chelsea. 8 wins out of 11 matches is something any coach will be proud of. Solskjaer will hope that momentum is sustained as they face The Special one Spurs.
Spurs, for their part, were on an incredibly negative run, sliding down the Premier League table and being knocked out of the Champions League by RasenBallsport Leipzig, yet the return of Kane and Son should improve their fortunes. They have taken just 1 point in their last 6 matches in all competitions. The restart and return of Kane and Son should change that.
United have been weaker on the road than at Old Trafford. They have scored 15 goals in their 14 away league matches. This is considerably lower when you consider the goal scored of top 4 teams like Liverpool, Chelsea, Mancity, and Leicester.
Tottenham vs Manchester United Tips And Predictions
Only Chelsea has succeeded to beat Tottenham with 2 clear goals in the league this season ever since Jose Mourinho took over. I expect a low scoring affair as Mourinho will put defense first in this game.
