It’s an English Premier League match with several subplots as Manchester United host Tottenham at Old Trafford. Jose Mourinho returns to Manchester in charge of Spurs and the stage is set for the Special One to outclass his rookie colleague Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and take all three points back to London.

Manchester United Form

Manchester United have failed to win in three matches with the pressure still on manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. A 3-3 draw at Sheffield United saw the Red Devils concede a late equaliser after coming back from 2-0 thanks to goals from Brandon Williams, Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford.

Solskjaer changed his entire squad in a 2-1 defeat at Astana in the Europa League despite Jesse Lingard’s early goal. The Red Devils drew 2-2 against Aston Villa at Old Trafford on Sunday, Victor Lindelöf scoring the go ahead goal before Man United threw away another lead. 

Manchester United News

Defenders Diogo Dalot, Timothy Fosu-Mensah and Eric Bailly are all injured alongside midfielders Nemanja Matic and Paul Pogba. Luke Shaw is close to full fitness but looks to have lost his left back spot to 19-year-old Brandon Williams. 

Juan Mata started against Aston Villa but could find himself benched for Jesse Lingard. Goalkeeper David de Gea is out of form, one of the reasons why Manchester United have seen over 3.5 goals in their last three English Premier League games.

Tottenham Form

Tottenham have won their last 3 matches under new manager Jose Mourinho which started with a 3-2 win at West Ham in the Premier League. All the attackers were in on the action with Son Heung-Min, Lucas Moura and Harry Kane among the goals.

Spurs then came back from 2-0 down against Olympiakos in the UEFA Champions League to win 4-2. Goals to Dele Alli, Harry Kane (2) and Serge Aurier completed the come back which was followed by a 3-2 EPL home win against Bournemouth.

Dele Alli continued his resurgence under Mourinho with the first two goals. Moussa Sissoko made it 3-0 before Spurs allowed the Cherries back into the game.

Goalkeepers Hugo Lloris and Michel Vorm are injured so Paulo Gazzaniga will continue in goal. Left back Ben Davies and winger Erik Lamela are also injured but Mourinho’s squad is deep and talented enough to covmpensate.
