James Mason is predicting a win for the visitors in his tips for Sunday's Premier League clash at Old Trafford.
Manchester United host Tottenham at Old Trafford on Sunday in what is the big-ticket contest in the Premier League this weekend.
United have slipped to eighth in the top-flight table and Erik ten Hag’s men sit nine points off the top-four positions going into this weekend’s fixtures.
Tottenham are just a point off north London rivals Arsenal, who occupy fourth spot and only six points behind Premier League leaders Liverpool.
Casemiro, Lisandro Martinez, Mason Mount and Anthony Martial are set to miss the visit of Spurs, but Luke Shaw, Christian Eriksen and Harry Maguire could return for the Red Devils.
Tottenham are set to be without Cristian Romero, Ben Davies, Manor Solomon, James Maddison, Yves Bissouma, Pape Sarr and Heung-Min Son through a combination of injuries and international call-up, but they will welcome Micky van de Ven back from injury.
Man Utd are 23/20 to pick up a much-needed victory at Old Trafford, while Spurs are 2/1 and the draw is available at 11/4.
Spurs have little to fear from the Red Devils
Tottenham have won five of their last six matches across all competitions and Ange Postecoglou is getting a real tune out of his squad.
The Aussie gaffer has quickly implemented a clear style and approach in north London and Spurs have won five Premier League away games this season, collecting excellent points at Arsenal and Man City.
Tottenham are 2/1 to win at Old Trafford and that looks a good price. The negative for Postecoglou’s men is the lengthy list of players missing on Sunday, with potentially seven first-team players set to miss the trip to Manchester.
However, injuries are nothing new to Spurs, who have been dealt a pretty rough ride this term, but Postecoglou’s approach doesn’t alter according to personnel and there is little reason to think United can stop an in-form Tottenham side.
The Red Devils have won only three of their last 10 matches across all competitions and one of those victories came against League One side Wigan in the FA Cup.
Ten Hag’s men have looked a team in disarray for the bulk of the campaign and Brighton, Palace, Newcastle, Bournemouth and Man City have all left Old Trafford with three points this season.
Take Tottenham to shut out United
United have failed to score in four of their last seven home matches and the Red Devils have hit only eight goals in their last nine games.
It’s hard to have any confidence in Ten Hag’s mis-firing strikeforce of Antony, Marcus Rashford and Rasmus Hojlund, who have scored only four Premier League goals between them this season.
