Man Utd vs Tottenham: Predictions
Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur go head-to-head on Sunday in what is surely the game of the week in the Premier League.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men head into the tie following back to back wins over Brighton – the first, a fortunate 3-2 win in the Premier League while the second was a resounding 3-0 victory in the EFL Cup on Wednesday.
Spurs, meanwhile, played out a disappointing 1-1 draw with Newcastle United in their last Premier League match, although they did knock Chelsea out of the EFL Cup with a 5-4 penalty shootout win and made light work of their midweek Europa League encounter.
Even at this early stage, both sides will be looking to close the gap on the top four in what is sure to be a close battle for the Champions League places.

Man Utd vs Tottenham: Team Stats
Although they haven’t made blistering starts to the season, both these sides have plenty of potency going forward, with the likes of Harry Kane, Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford getting among the goals.
The latter has a favourable record against Spurs, scoring three times across his career so far, and could sting his former manager, Jose Mourinho, again in this one. Either way, it has all the ingredients to be a high-scoring affair, especially given that United are on a league-high 15-game scoring streak.
For all Tottenham’s growth over recent years, this fixture is still largely dominated by Man Utd, with the Lilywhites beating the Red Devils just once in their last five meetings across all competitions.
Mourinho is now winless in six away league matches against teams he has previously managed, so his team will need to pull an impressive performance out of the hat to change that.
