Tottenham vs Man Utd: Line-ups
Spurs Will Be Fired Up to Win
Tottenham’s shock elimination from the Europa League in the middle of March has placed enormous pressure on head coach Jose Mourinho to deliver a top-four finish in this season’s Premier League, with the Portuguese potentially losing his job if he is unable to deliver Champions League football for next term.
Spurs will be eyeing a huge three points against Man United on Sunday, but they have only won half of their 14 home Premier League games this term, suffering four defeats in the process, including losses to Liverpool and Chelsea in the early stages of 2021. Mourinho’s side have won each of their last three league fixtures at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, though, scoring 10 times in the process, and their home form could be key to their chances of finishing in the top four.
Man United, like Spurs, have certainly had their problems this season, but the Red Devils will be in a confident mood heading into Sunday’s clash at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium courtesy of a run of four wins from their last five matches in all competitions.
Man United’s last away league game brought a 2-0 success over Man City towards the start of March, while they have won their last two league fixtures at Old Trafford against West Ham United and Brighton & Hove Albion to make it 10 unbeaten in England’s top flight. Not since January 2020 have Man United lost an away Premier League match, and the English giants have won nine of their 15 league fixtures on their travels this term, although four of their last five away from Old Trafford have ended in draws.
This is a bigger match for Tottenham as Man United are relatively secure in the top four; Mourinho’s side have also had much longer to prepare for this encounter and will be fired up, but the Red Devils are so difficult to beat on their travels, and an entertaining draw can be expected here.
