Manchester United vs Tottenham Match Preview
The second place in the English Premier League is up for grabs when Manchester United host Tottenham Hotspur this weekend. This Manchester United vs Tottenham Hotspur clash would be played at Old Trafford at noon on Saturday, October 28.
United currently have 20 points from nine matches and are second only by goal difference from Spurs. The early season optimism is now replaced by a sense of worry at Old Trafford after the last two performances. A 0-0 stalemate against Liverpool was followed by a 2-1 loss at Huddersfield Town. Though, they followed it up with a 2-0 win over Swansea City in the Carabao Cup, there are worrying signs over Jose Mourinho’s side. They no longer look a title chasing side, as their performance over Liverpool proved Jose’s attitude against higher quality opposition. Will that be the same against Tottenham? Old Trafford faithful want an answer and there is no better way than to put Tottenham to the sword.
It won’t be easy for the Red Devils, though, as Spurs are in some cracking form. Even the mythical ‘Wembley Curse’ couldn’t stop their run last weekend as they demolished Liverpool 4-1. This was the same Reds’ side that was held to a 0-0 draw by United. Mauricio Pochettino rotated his squad heavily in the midweek and lost 3-2 in the Carabao Cup clash against West Ham. The loss is a setback but Pochettino would be more worried about the injury to Harry Kane that kept him out of that game. Their away form is awe-inspiring as they won on all four trips this season. It is not an exaggeration to say that the visitors start as slight favourites for this Manchester United vs Tottenham Hotspur encounter.

Manchester United vs Tottenham Predictions
Manchester United’s game plan against quality opposition combined with Tottenham’s frugality makes this match a probably candidate for another low-scoring encounter. Back under 2.5 goals in the match could be the best betting tip. Lukaku is under pressure after missing out against Liverpool as critics question his performances against top teams. He would love to get back into the reckoning by netting against Tottenham.
