Manchester United are set to take on crisis club Tottenham Hotspur in a midweek Premier League clash – can United maintain their position in the top four?
United are set to be without Lisandro Martinez, Donny Van De Beek, Raphael Varane, Tom Heaton, Phil Jones and Alejandro Garnacho for their game against Spurs. Additionally, both Bruno Fernandes and Scott McTominay are major doubts – they’re very likely to miss out, too.
In their last league game, United picked up a solid 2-0 win away at Nottingham Forest. The home side put up a sturdy resistance, but could not find a way to score – the Red Devils’ goals were netted by Antony and Diogo Dalot.
Meanwhile, Spurs were handed a thorough beating at the hands of Newcastle United in their last Premier League game. They were 5-0 down before even the 30-minute mark – it was an embarrassing result that cost interim head coach Cristian Stellini his job. Tottenham’s only goal of the afternoon was scored by Harry Kane, but it was nothing more than a consolation.
When the two teams last met, Manchester United won by a score of 2-0. In that game, their goals were scored by Bruno Fernandes and Fred – how will things pan out in the reverse fixture at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium?
