Jose Mourinho will be taking his side Tottenham Hotspur to his former employers Manchester United at Old Trafford. This will be the second visit for the Special One since he was sacked as the Red Devils boss ahead of Sunday’s Premier League encounter.
Manchester United vs Tottenham preview
Since Mou was axed, he has faced United twice in the Premier League as the Spurs boss, with the first encounter at Trafford ending in a 2-1 defeat. He is yet to beat United as the return leg at home ended in a 1-1 draw.
Spurs have had a busy schedule, playing Europa League qualifiers, Carabao Cup and now the Premier League this weekend. Well, for the north London club, they managed to deal with the pressure as they booked a place in the quarter finals of the EFL Cup while securing a spot in the Europa League group stages.
On the other hand, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men have not been promising when playing at home. Their recent clash against Brighton saw them pick an easy win following an away 3-0 victory.
- Manchester United have registered six wins in their last home matches against Tottenham Hotspur in all competitions.
- Manchester United have gone for 15 matches without a loss in the last 16 Premier League games.
- More than two goals have been produced in the last 3 home matches between Manchester United and Spurs in all competitions.
- The Red Devils have at least netted two goals in eight of their last ten Premier League matches.
Head to head
The last four meetings, Tottenham have failed to beat Manchester United, with Spurs managing to secure a 1-1 draw in June. Last season, the Reds Devils beat Spurs 2-1 in the first leg with the return leg saw the pair share points.
The last time the north London club beat Manchester United was back in 2018, where the Red Devils were hammered 3-0 at home.
This will be a tricky encounter for the two sides bearing in mind that the pair registered heavy wins in their midweek clashes. United beat Brighton 3-0 away at American Express Community Stadium while Spurs thrashed Maccabi Haifa 7-2 to book a place in the group stages of the Europa League.
The hosts are somehow favourites on paper heading to the tie but they’ve not had a good start to the current campaign and this could open the door for Mourinho to dent his former side.
Our topbets pundits believe the clash will end in a draw and betway is backing the pair to share spoils at 3.76 while Odibets have 3.75 for the same outcome.
Both teams to score
Well, they say history repeats itself and we can clearly see that both teams have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last three encounters. We expect the same result to continue this Sunday and betway has 1.79 odds for GG market while Odibets has 1.70.
Anytime goalscorer: Harry Kane
Kane was in fine form last season and this campaign seems like he will be challenging for the top scorer award. The midweek clash saw the England international grab a hattrick against Maccabi and we are expecting the forward to continue with his fine form in front of the goal.
Betway is backing Kane to score a goal any time at an odd of 2.75 while Chezacash has the same odds.
