Manchester United VS Tottenham Hotspur | Premier League

A turbulent Manchester United look to redeem themselves against a resilient Tottenham who will be looking to capitalize on United’s Vulnerable state. United are coming off of a bad week, losing to Brighton, Mino Raiola ranting, Mourinho looking unstable and the fans claim to have a special message “flone” out for Ed Woodward. Jose Mourinho will be looking to redeem himself while Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs are enjoying a 100% win percentage so far and the Spurs boss will be hoping his side can come out victorious against a wounded United team.

Key Players

Manchester United- Paul Pogba

Pogba has been in the news for all the wrong reasons but the World Champion will and should step up against Tottenham because he is undoubtedly Manchester United’s best player.

Tottenham Hotspur- Harry Kane

Harry Kane has finally scored in August! Tottenham’s star Striker is known to score a bucketful of goals and Kane will be looking to do exactly that against Manchester United.

Prediction- Manchester United 1-1 Tottenham

I’m going with a 1-1 Draw, I expect Jose Mourinho to set-up a tight defence, but you can’t keep out an efficient Spurs attack. United shouldn’t have a problem scoring considering the team have a point to prove.
