Manchester United are on three consecutive wins after beating, Luton Town, and Brighton twice. Tottenham Hotspur drew the last Premier League match against Newcastle but had an emphatic 7-2 win against Maccabi Haifa. On Sunday night, United meet Spurs.
Spurs who are currently sitting in 10th place will be looking to climb the ladder. Spurs boss, Jose Mourinho will be looking to exact revenge at his former employers as they face at Old Trafford.
Player Battles to watch out for:
Harry Kane v Harry Maguire
The England captain will be looking to increase his tally, while United captain Maguire, will be out there as a wall. Maguire can play hard and can stand up star strikers like Harry Kane. It will be interesting to see how they match up
Eric Dier v Bruno Fernandes
Bruno Fernandes who is often at the heart of the United attack would be an obvious target for Mourinho to mark. Bruno had a fantastic debut season and even started off this campaign in sublime form. Dier will be the man to get the tackles in and stop him from scoring.
Heung-Min Son v Aaron Wan-Bissaka
While Wan-Bissaka’s attacking is often questioned, his defensive work rate and skills are on-point. He is known to make last man tackles and is also nicknamed ‘the spider’ cause of quick and long legs. Against him, will Son who has already got himself a hattrick this early on in the season. He scored 4 past Southampton and is not nearly fit to start the game.
Manchester United: De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Baily, Maguire (C), Shaw, van de Beek, Pogba, Fernandes, Greenwood, Rashford and Martial.
Tottenham Hotspur: Lloris (C), Doherty, Sanchez, Dier, Reguilon, Hojbjerg, Winks, Moura, Lo Celso, Son and Kane.
When and where to watch
The match kicks off at 9 pm IST. The match can be watched on Star Sports Select 2 and Star Sports Select HD 2 and on Disney+ Hotstar.
With spurs being in superb but, tired form, a 2-1 victory over the Red Devils can be predicted. If Mourinho decides to rest Son, the match could very well go in United’s favour.
