Manchester United will be without long-term absentee Eric Bailly, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic also remains out. Here’s how Manchester United could line up against Tottenham…
Manchester City are the only side to take more points away from home than Man United this season. The division’s next centurion should benefit from the return of Christian Eriksen. “I wanted to change the structure and after a couple of minutes he was injured”, he said.
“We made a bad mistake in the first goal, a mistake by the whole team, they watch videos and they analyse the Spurs kick-off”, he told BT Sport.
Far from looking like he was on his way out once again following the Portuguese’s appointment as manager in 2016, Mata has now signed a contract extension that will keep him at United until 2019. They can reach that level. These are the best players of the last decade.
A big game deserves a bold prediction, and a draw certainly constitutes just that.
Two in-form teams. A top four six-pointer.
“The story has gone round that he is on one of the top salaries in the Premier League so he is going to get a little bit of attention wherever he goes”, the United manager said.
They would be looking to maintain that winning run against a club who are now struggling for momentum – the last two games for Spurs have resulted in 1-1 draws. Alexis Sanchez secured his move to United after a long-running transfer conundrum surrounding him.
Alexis is most likely to make his Premier League debut for United and could find himself starting on the right wing, a position he has done well in the past during his days with Udinese and Barcelona.
The Chilean could score against the same side in the same Premier League season for TWO different clubs.
Jermaine Jenas described Manchester United’s performance at Wembley as “embarrassing” after Tottenham Hotspur eased to a comfortable 2-0 win. He’s expected to play in this match and his inclusion will influence some of Pochettino’s defensive selections.
Harry Kane has scored 99 goals in 139 Premier League appearances; only Alan Shearer (124) and Sergio Aguero (147) have reached a century of goals in fewer than 150 matches in the division.
Meanwhile, United now find themselves second in the league table with 53 points from 24 matches. “We’re talking about Jose Mourinho”.
David De Gea is perhaps the first name of the teamsheet.
