Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester United Preview

Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester United

Competition – International Champions Cup

Stadium – Hongkou Stadium

Date: 25th July 2019

Kick-off time – 12:30 BST 

Two English title challengers continue their pre-season when they take on each other in this ICC match.   These sides also started last season hoping to challenge for the league title, but it was Spurs who had a more successful season as they finished inside the top four and also reached the final of the Champions League.

Mauricio Pochettino has shown a knack for bringing up young local talents and looks set to bring more through this season.  The Lilywhites have seen the departure of Kieran Trippier and Fernando Llorente with Danny Rose also expected to leave.

Spurs fans can trust the judgment of Pochettino who has secured the signature of Tanguy Ndombele and is set to bring in more exciting signings.  Spurs beat Juventus 3-2 in their last ICC game and their fans will be hoping for another win here.

Manchester United are undergoing a serious rebuilding campaign this season and they look to be on the right track.  They may still keep hold of Paul Pogba which would be a major coup for them.

Daniel James looks like an exciting signing and this game offers him the opportunity to show their fans more of what he has to offer.  The Red Devils will be looking to keep another clean sheet and build on their recent win over Inter Milan.

Bookmakers have priced Tottenham up as very slight favourites to come out on top in this game however the odds are extremely tight and a splash of cash would see Manchester United start the game as favourites.

Goal markets point to a lively game as over 2.5 goals is currently trading odds-on prior to kick-off.

This game gets underway at 12:30 BST.
