Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester United Preview

Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester United

Competition – Barclays Premier League

Stadium – Wembley

Date: 13th January 2019

Kick-off time – 16:30 GMT

Manchester United visit Wembley to take on Tottenham as they continue to chase a place in the Premier League top four.

The Red Devils look rejuvenated after they fired Jose Mourinho and made Ole Gunnar Solskjaer their interim manager.

They come into this game having won their last 5 games under the Norwegian, but this is arguably the biggest game they have faced since he was named their manager.

A win here would show everyone that the Red Devils are back to their brilliant best, but that would be easier said than done.

Paul Pogba has recovered from his injury and will be a major boost for them in this game as well.

Mauricio Pochettino moved one step closer to clinching his first major trophy as a manager when he beat Chelsea 1-0 in the Carabao Cup semifinal first leg.

That win was Spurs’ 7th in their last 8 games in all competitions so they host the Red Devils in good form.

They are 6 points behind Liverpool at the moment and scored 10 goals in games against Cardiff and Tranmere before facing Chelsea.

On paper, it’s the home side that looks like they have a better chance of winning this game however they face a Manchester United side that is full of confidence and that makes for an interesting game.

Bookmakers have priced Tottenham up as steady favourites to get the job done here while goal markets suggest this will be a lively game as over 2.5 goals is currently trading odds-on.

Harry Kane is clear favourite with bookies to score the opening goal of the game.
