Tottenham Hotspur Betting Preview
Tottenham Hotspur comes into this game sitting sitting in 6th place in the standings having picked up 53 points. It has been a disappointing season for Tottenham, and they have lost two games in a row. In the last game against Newcastle, the defense gave up six goals and that led to the defeat. Harry Kane scored in the 49th minute but it was the defense that really let them down. Hugo Lloris is dealing with a hip injury and it doesn’t look like he’s going to be able to go in this game. Rodrigo Bentancur, Emerson Royal, Ryan Sessegnon, and Yves Bissouma are also all dealing with injuries and they aren’t going to be able to go in this game. In this game the defense is going to need to be good.
Manchester United Betting Preview
On the other side of this matchup is Manchester United who sits in 4th place in the standings having picked up 59 points. On Sunday Manchester United faced off against Brighton in the FA Cup and they were able to advance on penalty kicks. Manchester United had only 39 percent of the possession and six shots on target. Fernandes is still dealing with fitness concerns and it doesn’t look like he’s going to be able to go in this game. Harry McGuire is back from suspension and that is going to be a big boost for the team. Scott McTominay was hurt in the last game and it doesn’t look like it’s going to be able to go in this game.
Shane’s Free Pick
I have some major concerns about the Tottenham Hotspur defense, and even with the injuries for Manchester United, they are going to find success here. Tottenham Hotspur is going to give up two or three goals, and that is going to be the difference here. Back Manchester United on the money line to cash here.
