Romelu Lukaku v Jan Vertonghen
This Monday night fixture will see two countrymen go head-to-head at Old Trafford as Romelu Lukaku takes on Jan Vertonghen. The duo will be familiar with each other’s games style inside out but Vertonghen is favourites to come out on top as Lukaku’s record against Spurs so far is poor. In 10 appearances across all competition against Tottenham, the Belgian has only scored one goals.
In fact, the Belgian has managed to net just one goal against the league’s traditional ‘big six’ in the Premier League since he joined the Red Devils last summer and now would be a timely boost for Lukaku to finally deliver in a big game for the beleaguered Mourinho.
