Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester United Preview

Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester United

Competition – Barclays Premier League

Stadium – Wembley

Date: 31st January 2018

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

Despite naming a very strong side in their FA Cup match against lowly Newport County, Spurs were only able to get a draw in Wales and that extra fixture has now been added to their already crowded fixture list.

They also failed to win their Premier League game against Southampton prior to that match against Newport.

Their reliance on a few stars means they need an injection of fresh players to their team before the end of this month.

Tottenham won 4:1 over Liverpool last year but their record against the top six is dismal as they have lost to Manchester United, Manchester City, Arsenal, and Chelsea and they will look to avenge their loss to United in this game.

Manchester United won their last game 4-0 against Yeovil in the FA Cup but more importantly, they were able to give their new signing Alexis Sanchez some time on the pitch.

That win was their 5th on the bounce and they remain second in the league table with a 3 points advantage over Chelsea who are third and a 12 points deficit on runaway league leaders, Manchester City.

They have found new form in front of goal which has led them to score in their last six away games, scoring at least 2 goals in 5 of those matches.

The Red Devils have won four of their last seven meetings with Spurs, losing only twice.
