Title chasing Tottenham host Champions League chasing Manchester United in Sunday’s Premier League afternoon kick-off.
Tottenham v Manchester United
Live on Sky Sports 1 / Sky Sports 1 HD
Tottenham heads into this difficult clash desperate for a win in their challenge to win the Premier League title. Spurs could be as many as ten points behind league leaders Leicester, if the Foxes win at Sunderland in the early kick-off, so Spurs desperately need a win.
Spurs have not been in the greatest of form recently, but on the up side Mauricio Pochettino’s team have lost just one of their last 11 Premier League outings. Their home form is good though, as the side from north London have won four out of their last five Top-flight home games.
Spurs have won just three of the 23 meetings in the Premier League against United at White Hart Lane, but are odds of 19/20 at Bet365.
Harry Kane is leading the Premier League scoring charts this season and the England international could be a good bet to open the scoring at odds of 15/4 with Bet365.
Manchester United heads to north London in decent form following consecutive 1-0 victories in the top-flight against Manchester City and Everton. The Red Devils are also in desperate need of picking up points in this clash in their pursuit of a top four spot this season.
Fourth-place Manchester City are just a point above their rivals, but could extend that lead with a win against West Brom in the late kick-off on Saturday. Louis van Gaal’s team are odds of 7/2 to win the clash and help their did for a Champions League spot this season.
For me these two teams are probably well-matched and this game is likely to be a tight one and finish in a draw, which is odds of 13/5 with Totesport.
