Manchester United vs Tottenham Hotspur Preview

Manchester United vs Tottenham Hotspur

Competition – FA Cup

Stadium – Wembley

Date: 21st April 2018

Kick-off time – 17:15 GMT

This game is the most important game remaining for the fans of these two teams as they have all but secured a top four finish and they have also exited the Champions League.

The FA Cup should be the minimum each side would want to get for their fans.

Manchester United have had contrasting fortunes this month.

They impressively came from two goals down to beat Manchester City 3-2 in their first game of the month, only for them to lose their very next match to bottom-of-the-table West Brom, before a heavily rotated side beat Bournemouth on Wednesday.

Tottenham haven’t had the best of months either – they defeated Chelsea 3-1 away in their first game of the month before losing their next game at home to Manchester City by the same score line.

They followed that up with another disappointing draw against Brighton in midweek.

Unlike Manchester United, their team against Brighton was a full strength side.

Spurs will be playing at home technically as they have played at Wembley all season and they tend to do well in terms of seeing off teams at this stadium, with Manchester United losing 2-0 on their last visit.

Spurs have kept only one clean sheet in their last seven games while Manchester United have conceded in six of their last 9 games.
