Premier League: Tottenham vs Manchester United preview


Manchester United are looking to secure their sixth consecutive victory in all competitions when they face Tottenham at Wembley Stadium on Wednesday evening. The Red Devils have defeated the Spurs 1-0 in the reverse fixture, Anthony Martial scored the winning goal at Old Trafford with just nine minutes left in the match. Tottenham have won their last two home matches against Manchester United and have not lost at home against the Red Devils since 2012. However, Manchester United have won four of the last six direct meetings overall.

Tottenham are unbeaten in their last eight matches in all competitions but they have recorded a few draws they really wanted to avoid: at home against West Ham and away at Southampton in the Premier League, plus the 1-1 at Newport in the FA Cup last weekend. The Spurs are currently fifth in the Premier League table, just two points behind fourth-placed Liverpool but eight points behind second-placed Manchester United. Danny Rose, Toby Alderweireld, Christian Eriksen and Hugo Lloris have all returned to first-team training and could feature here, while Harry Winks remains injured.

Manchester United have won their last five matches in all competitions and have not lost a game since the shocking 2-1 League Cup defeat at Bristol City five days before Christmas. Moreover, they have not conceded a single goal in their last six competitive matches and have consolidated their place behind Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table. Last weekend they Red Devils recorded an easy 4-0 victory at Yeovil in the FA CupEric Bailly, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Daley Blind are injured and won't be able to play on Wednesday.

Probable line-ups:

Tottenham: Lloris - Trippier, D. Sanchez, Vertonghen, Davies - Dier, Dembele - Son Heung-Min, Eriksen, Alli - Keane

Man United: De Gea - Jones, Smalling, Rojo - Valencia, Matic, Pogba, Young - Lingard - A. Sanchez, Lukaku

My prediction: 1-1 draw.

Here are the odds for the match at Bet365:

Tottenham win - 2.35
Draw - 3.29
Man United win - 3.39

    Spurs outplayed United hugely in that one and 2-0 was the smallest margin they could of won the game.
    De Gea again was fantastic for United but for me it's too worrying sign when your keeper is the best player game after game,... year after year.
    Last united scoring chance in this one came in about 4th or 5th minute of the game so..that just tells the whole story really.
