Having once against dropped points at the death against Newcastle, Joe Mourinho will want a reaction from his players to maintain Tottenham’s chances of finishing in the top four, with the club now three points behind West Ham, who occupy the final Champions League qualification place.
Man Utd have all but confirmed their ticket in Europe’s premier tournament next season, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side currently ensconsed in second and some nine points ahead of Chelsea in fifth, though the Norwegian will be relishing this matchup, looking to avenge the 6-1 reversal back in autumn.
Mourinho returned to his old stomping ground bright-eyed and bushy-tailed in October’s meeting at Old Trafford, with his side running riot in a seven-goal thriller, and the Portuguese will now be looking to become the first former Man Utd manager to do the double of the club since Dave Sexton in 1981/82 with Coventry City.
Solskjaer will want to avoid that predicament and continue consolidating his side’s current runners-up position in the table. But, his men have a truncated period of time in which to prepare for this showdown ,as the club recently set out their stool in the Europa League, netting two away goals in their quarter-final clash with Granada on Thursday.
Tottenham vs Manchester United: Match Stats
Seeing games out, once the modus operandi of Mourinho’s tactical blueprint, has been difficult for Spurs to achieve this season. Indeed the club have failed to win a league-high six Premier League matches this season in which they were leading at half-time, going on to draw all six of those games.
The nadir of that concerning statistic came after the club squandered a three-goal lead to West Ham in just eight minutes, and it came to a head last time out as Newcastle snatched a point from the jaws of defeat. So, should they go a goal down, Man Utd will fancy their chances of a comeback.
Harry Kane meanwhile will be looking to become only the fourth player in the competition’s history to net 20+ goals in a Premier League season for the fifth different campaign, so expect him to tuck home, but don’t expect Spurs to hold firm should they strike first.

That seven-goal spectacle in the North West remains a single-fixture zenith for Mourinho during his spell in the Tottenham dugout. That win, executed with such audacity and dominance, would have felt extra sweet for the former Man Utd boss, with Kane and Son Heung-min combining to net two goals apiece and batter the host’s defence from pillar to post. However, the club have not completed league double over the Red Devils since the 1989/90 season under Terry Venables.
