Tottenham vs Manchester United betting preview and match odds
Another week, another disappointment for Tottenham’s fans as their team only managed a 1-1 draw at Burnley at the weekend, in a game in which they delivered just two shots on target. This was Tottenham’s 5th game in a row without a victory, although it was their first point in the Premier League in three consecutive matches.
Spurs now sit only 8th in the league table, four points behind their Sunday’s opponents Manchester United. Mourinho’s men are now back on home soil where they have suffered defeats in each of their last three competitive games. Their recent home form has seen them lose against RB Leipzig in the Champions League, against Wolves in the Premier League and finally at the hands of Norwich after a penalty shootout in the FA Cup.
It seems that Tottenham’s biggest problems at the moment are in the final third, as they only managed to score five goals in their last five games across all competitions. This is understandable anyway as Mourinho still needs to handle all the games without the likes of his most prolific players in front of goal in the likes of Son Heung-Min and Harry Kane, who are both out through injury. Before facing Manchester United in this extremely important clash for a spot in Europe next season, Tottenham will travel to Germany to face RB Leipzig for the second leg of their Champions League round of 16 ties.
On the other hand, Manchester United makes the trip to London in high spirits following an amazing 2-0 home victory over city rivals, Manchester City. Ole’s men are now unbeaten in ten games across all competitions, having won seven in the process. This match against Spurs lines up perfectly for Manchester United as their defense has been on point of late, while the hosts are struggling to score.
The Red Devils have kept a clean sheet in eight of their last ten competitive outings, including their match against Manchester City at the weekend. It has been kind of a surprise to see the Citizens not being able to score at Old Trafford, as Pep’s men are the league’s topscorers with 68 goals in 28 games. Man Utd can count on their away form ahead of this trip as they are undefeated in six competitive games while conceding just twice in the process.
In addition, they have secured a narrow 1-0 victory in their most recent away game at Tottenham. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men have a difficult trip to Austria in midweek as they will face LASK Linz in the Europa League, which is one of the biggest surprises in this year’s competition.
