Manchester United travel to London this weekend to face Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur side as the Red Devils look to avenge the 6-1 humbling at Old Trafford earlier in the campaign. 

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men know that a win on Sunday would help to close the gap on league leaders Manchester City, who slipped up at the hands of Leeds United on Saturday, while Tottenham are looking to secure a crucial three points in their pursuit of Champions League football. 

United will be full of confidence going into the match following back-to-back wins against Brighton and Grenada respectively, while Spurs will be looking to bounce back from a disappointing draw away to strugglers Newcastle United last weekend. 

Team News 

Manchester United will be hoping that both Luke Shaw and Paul Pogba pass a late fitness test after the pair were taken off midweek.  

Luke Shaw has been one of United’s stand out performers this year and is well in with a shout for the club’s player of the year award, but was removed just 45 minutes into the action on Thursday. 

United’s confirmed absentees include Anthony Martial, Eric Bailly and Phil Jones, for a combination of injuries and illnesses. 

The return of David De Gea midweek will spark an interesting dilemma for Solskjaer as he looks to settle on a preferred number one following an impressive spell of form from Dean Henderson

Spurs will be without Matt Doherty or Ben Davies for the game but boast a good bill of health otherwise. 

Both Toby Alderweireld and Serge Aurier are likely to be ready for action on Sunday having missed the draw in Newcastle. 

Heung-Min Son featured from the bench last week and is likely to start this week alongside his partner in crime, Harry Kane, despite the recent speculation surrounding the talisman. 

Predicted Lineups 

Tottenham Hotspur XI: Lloris, Aurier, Roden, Sanchez, Reguilon, Hojbjerg, Ndombele, Lucas Moura, Lo Celso, Son, Kane 

Manchester United XI: Henderson, Wan Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw, Fred, Pogba, James, Fernandes, Rashford, Greenwood

Tottenham Hotspur: Harry Kane 

Leading the way for both goals and assists in the Premier League this season, Harry Kane is quietly going about reestablishing himself among Europe’s elite this season, despite a poor season by the team’s standards. 

Kane’s deadly finishing paired with an evolved creative instinct makes Kane one of the most unique strikers in the world, as well as one of the deadliest.  

While speculation around his future looking unlikely to cease, Kane continues to do what he has done for so many years, putting the ball in the back of the net.
