Free ESPN Premier League Picks Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester United

It’s a showdown at Wembley this Sunday as Spurs host Manchester United in what promises to be an enthralling contest. The Lily Whites have had the better of the Red Devils in recent fixtures between the two sides. Pochettino’s side would be looking to make it three in a row against Manchester United for the first time since September 1960. The Spurs boss has been heavily speculated to be the next Manchester United manager. United have improved in their recent outings, but they are nowhere near to what Tottenham have accomplished at the same time. A win here for Spurs would take them to 2nd spot in the table that is only until Manchester City host Wolves. Manchester United are 10 points behind Spurs on 6th position in the table.

Tottenham Hotspur

Mauricio Pochettino being linked to United is been trending more than his sides recent victories – This proves how good he has been for Tottenham, he has transformed them from being a top-six side to a title contender for the past two Premier League seasons. What Spurs and Pochettino lack is a Trophy and this season they surely are capable of at least winning one. So when you win the expectations of the fans increase as well and Tottenham are in good form recently they would want to keep winning and closing the gap between them and the leaders. Spurs are well and truly in the Premier League title race this season. We know what happened to City when they were at the top – anything can happen in this league. Before their defeat at Wembley against an impressive Wolves side, they scored 11 goals in aggregate against Everton and Bournemouth. In 2019 they haven’t conceded a goal yet and have scored 11 goals during the same time. Apart from Harry Kane, Son Heung-Min is been in tremendous form this season scoring 8 goals and 5 Assist in 16 Premier League outings so far. Defensively Tottenham have been better after the Arsenal at Emirates. Jan Vertonghen could be available for the fixture after recovering from an injury, although Victor Wanyama and Eric Drier remain unavailable.

Manchester United

The Red Devils were defeated by a scoreline of 3-0 when both the sides played at Old Trafford earlier this season in 2018. Since the appointment of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as Manchester United interim Manager, they have played freely without any pressure. The Instructions from their manager would be to go out there and express themselves – which they’ve been doing well lately. Another positive for Solskjaer is Paul Pogba’s form and involvement in the game which is huge for United on nights like these – The Frenchman can prove to be the difference between the two sides. Manchester United are undefeated in their previous 4 Premier League games. The defensive unit needs to bring in their ‘A+’ game, which hasn’t looked solid at all throughout the season but have shown a glimpse of improvement. Harry Kane, Son, and Eriksen are all match winner – one defensive error and Spurs would feel more confident moving forward as the game goes on. From United’s point of view, Lakaku seems to be getting back into rhythm – scoring against Bournemouth and Newcastle. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is the verge of a huge milestone is he wins this fixture on Sunday – he will equal Sir Matt Busby’s record of a Manchester United manager winning their first five league games in charge of the club.

On paper and current form, no one would bet against Spurs. The reason why Tottenham haven’t won a trophy in 11 years is that they haven’t finished off this sort of games when they were in the title race. United have improved a lot since Mourinho’s departure, if they can hold Tottenham till the first, then we have a match on our hands.- to do that they will have to play out of their skins. Expect a better clash than what we had seen in the reverse fixture this season.

Match Prediction: Tottenham 2 – 2 Manchester United
