With the Premier League entering a mini winter break, Manchester United and Tottenham’s meeting on Sunday is one of just four fixtures in the top flight this weekend. While there may be fewer games for fans to enjoy, if recent history is anything to go by this match up at Old Trafford should produce plenty of entertainment.
The last five league meetings between these two teams in Manchester have delivered 20 goals, with United winning on three occasions and Spurs triumphing twice. One of those two away wins came in spectacular fashion, with the North Londoners hitting Manchester United for six. United will have fonder memories of their 3-2 victory in March of 2022, when a certain Cristiano Ronaldo bagged a hat-trick.
Erik ten Hag’s side could do with a goalscorer of Ronaldo’s class this season, with nobody in the current squad having registered more than six goals in all competitions so far this campaign. Bruno Fernandes and Scott McTominany lead the way with half a dozen each and are 5/2 and 7/2 respectively with Sportsbook CopyBet, to find the net anytime in this one.
Spurs are without their leading scorer, Son Heung-min, due to Asian Cup duties. So responsibility will fall on the likes of Richarlison and Dejan Kulusevski to produce the goals. Kulusevski has enjoyed his trips to Manchester, scoring in each of his last three appearances at City’s Etihad Stadium and the Swede is 7/2 to get on the scoresheet at Old Trafford.
Tottenham’s last five games at United have witnessed four penalties and with all the VAR fun and games right now, punters may well fancy a bet on another spot kick this time around. CopyBet are offering 11/2 that the first goal on Sunday is scored through a penalty, while it’s 17/10 that the referee points to the spot at any point during the match.
