Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur face off on Sunday in an English Premier League showdown at Old Trafford.
There are always high expectations surrounding Manchester United but it looks like this could be another down year for them. Manchester United started off the season against Crystal Palace a game that most expected them to win, but their defense struggled and that led to a 3-1 loss.In the last game against Brighton, their defense struggled again giving up two goals, but the offense made up for it scoring three goals. In that game Manchester United scored a goal ten minutes into stoppage time and that led to a victory. Manchester United is currently really playing with fire, and it’s not going to get any easier in this game. United did play a midweek EFL Cup game and in that one they won 3-0.
On the other side of this matchup is Tottenham Hotspur who has had a busy week. On Sunday Tottenham played to a 1-1 draw against Newcastle in Premier League action. On Tuesday in EFL Cup action, Tottenham beat Chelsea on penalty kicks. On Thursday, it was a Europa League playoff game against Maccabi Haifa, and it was Tottenham who came away with a 7-2 victory. There is no doubt that Tottenham wants to win this game, but there are going to be some tired legs, and it wouldn’t be shocking to see some players sit out of this game. In the last game they were led by Harry Kane who put three goals in the back of the net.
In terms of talent, Tottenham Hotspur has the advantage, but they are going to be tired heading into this game and that will let them down in this game. Look for Manchester United’s offense to find success and come away with a victory.
