The Line: -- Over/Under:
In the English Premier League, Manchester United will play their next Premier League fixture at home at Old Trafford. Manchester United are set to play against Tottenham.
This is a big match for Jose Mourinho as it will be a chance for him to get revenge against the club that fired him. Since the arrival of Mourinho, Tottenham have had a great run of results. Over the weekend, Tottenham defeated Bournemouth 3-2 at home. It was a good performance by Tottenham as the team controlled the majority of the possession and completed 515 passes. Dele Alli was in outstanding touch as he scored two goals for the team. Moussa Sissoko also contributed with a goal. It was a sloppy end to the match Tottenham as they conceded 2 goals late in the match. It has been a positive few weeks for Tottenham and the team will be hoping to get a win at Old Trafford.
On the other side of the coin, Manchester United are struggling. The Red Devils have failed to win their last 3 games which have all been against weak opposition. In their previous outing, Manchester United only managed a 2-2 draw at home against Aston Villa. It was an unprofessional effort with the Red Devils lacking desire and fight. The pressure is building on the Manchester United manager and if the team fails to win, it could be a big issue.
Manchester United and Tottenham played each other twice last season. The match in Manchester was won 3-0 by Tottenham while the Red Devils won 1-0 in North London.
Looking at this match, Manchester United will be desperate to get a result but the team lacks organization and I see them struggling. Tottenham have improved significantly since the arrival of Jose Mourinho and the team seems to be showing the quality that got them to the final of the Champions League. I see Tottenham having enough to win this match away from home.
