Man United welcome Tottenham to Old Trafford on Sunday in the Premier League. Both have had a stuttered season so far, though they recorded wins in their respective European matches during the week, their Premier League campaign has been more of struggling
Tottenham started the season in an impressive fashion but have had to endured a run of poor results. Man United are six points behind their visitors and anything short of victory for Jose Mourinho’s men will see them lose more ground in the race to finish on the top four.
Though too early, the top four finish looks more achievable for the clubs than the Premier League.
Both have struggled in front of goals with Spurs scoring 19 goals and United managing 20 goals and each have drawn six of their league games so far.
However, Tottenham have the edge over United when the two meet on Sunday. United defence has been from impressing and the attacking trio of Harry Kane, Eriksen and Son may be too too for them to curtail.
Tottenham had been unbeaten in the league until the 1-2 loss to Chelsea and with the resilient shown in that match and their last two games, United is indeed in for a serious battle.
United have dominated matches but have failed to get the results, their failure to find the net means they have had to share the points in those matches. And the White Hart Lane will take advantage of their struggling defence and their inability to find the back of the net.
Old Trafford is no more formidable for Spurs as they have picked 2 wins from their last 5 visits and the pressure will be more on Mourinho and United.
