Manchester United vs Tottenham Prediction & Match Preview

Manchester United host Tottenham Hotspur in a blockbuster Premier League Matchday 21 showdown on Sunday afternoon at Old Trafford, promising a spectacle no football fan should miss.

United, fresh off a 2-0 League Cup win over Wigan, showed attacking intent despite the scoreline. Manager Erik ten Hag will be pleased with the improvement, especially after the thrilling 3-2 victory over Aston Villa in their last home league game.

Against Spurs, known for their open style under Ange Postecoglou, expect plenty of space and goalscoring opportunities. Indeed, three or more goals have graced all but one of Tottenham’s past eleven Premier League outings.

They come into this match riding a wave of momentum, winning five of their last six games, including an FA Cup victory over Burnley. This has propelled them to fifth in the table, eight points ahead of their eighth-placed rivals.

Historically, though, Tottenham don’t enjoy visiting Old Trafford. They have only won 13 of 87 matches there, with 62 losses and 12 draws. Moreover, five of the last seven head-to-head encounters have been high-scoring affairs.

Can Tottenham repeat their 2-0 victory over United from earlier this season? Or will ten Hag’s men secure a crucial home win and close the gap in the table? Tune in on Sunday to find out!
