Tottenham vs Manchester United betting preview

One of the biggest games this weekend in the Premier League will see Manchester United take on Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

The Red Devils have been in imperious form of late and they’ll be looking to consolidate second place on the league table. Meanwhile, Tottenham are also aiming to secure a place in the top four after improving in recent weeks.

More than just three points at stake, are two managers who are silently building up a rivalry. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Jose Mourinho have no love lost and have never shied away from aiming jabs at each other.

In October when Manchester United and Spurs met at Old Trafford, the latter emerged victorious after smashing Solskjaer’s side 6-1. That humiliating defeat is yet to be forgotten and the Reds will be looking for revenge.

After a 2-0 win over Granada in the Europa League quarter-final first leg in midweek, Manchester United are in good spirits ahead of this clash.

For Tottenham, though, it’s been a bumpy season thus far but they’ve lost just once in their last six Premier League matches. Spurs will also have the complement of a full squad, with the exception of Son Heung-Min, who has been ruled out due to an injury he suffered some weeks ago.

Solskjaer is also expected to have a full squad to pick from, with the likes of Paul Pogba, Bruno Fernandes and Edinson Cavani all fit to play. However, the Reds boss will have to decide whether or not to play Marcus Rashford, who is nursing an injury but started against Granada in the Europa League.

The only Manchester United player not available for selection is Eric Bailly who tested positive for COVID-19 while on international duty with the Ivory Coast.

Betika tips Manchester United as slight favourites with a winning odd of 2.50, while Tottenham is priced at 2.90 to win the game. Meanwhile, a draw between the two sides is priced at 3.50.
