Tottenham vs Manchester United Match Preview
Manchester United may have won five Premier League (PL) matches on the trot, but their credentials will be put to a stern test by Tottenham Hotspur this midweek. This Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester United PL encounter will be played at Wembley on Wednesday night, January 31, so check out our Tottenham vs Manchester United prediction and betting tips.
Tottenham have a lot riding on them ahead of this encounter. Not just they are under pressure to improve their performances, they are also looking to crawl their way back into the top four. Over 24 games, the hosts find themselves fifth in the PL table (45 pts, W13, D6, L5). That’s just two points behind fourth-placed Liverpool and to keep pressure on the Reds, Tottenham need to win this Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester United fixture. Things didn’t go well for them over the weekend as they needed a late equalizer to earn an FA Cup replay against the lowly Newport County. With fixtures already piling up in the crowded period, that is something manager Mauricio Pochettino could have done without.
After a lull in their campaign during the Christmas period, Manchester United picked up steam by notching five wins on a trot, including a 4-0 win at Yeovil in the FA Cup last weekend. They are currently second after 24 games (53 pts, W16, D5, L3). With a 12-point gap dwindling their hopes of a title, United’s aim right now is to keep the chasing pack led by Chelsea (50 pts) at bay! With the club having pipped rivals Manchester City to the signing of Alexis Sanchez, there is an air of excitement among the fans to see how manager Jose Mourinho will line up his forward line. This Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester United fixture will give an idea to his thinking for the rest of the season.
