Manchester United are playing on Wembley Stadium in search of a fifth consecutive win in the Premier League. There will be Tottenham, who have won their last three home games against The Red Devils. Spurs, just like their opponent, are in great form and began the year with three wins in a row, two of which were for the cups. In the standings, Tottenham are leading of Manchester United with a comfortable margin, and an eventual win will ensure the participation in the Champions League for Spurs.
Ole Gunnar Solskjær made an impressive start as head coach of Manchester United, and precisely that’s what made the fans of the club believe that their team could fight with Arsenal and Chelsea for the fourth place in the Premier League. Is too early for such expectations, but it’s a fact that United took victory in four consecutive games, even though they came versus teams from the lower half of the table. Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford took responsibility, and for the moment they are the leading players of the team. The young Englishman took part in nine goals in the previous eight games, while Pogba in seven.
The game on Sunday with Tottenham will give answers to many questions related to Manchester United and will provide a real evolution of the work of Ole Gunnar Solskjær. The Red Devils are performing well in attack, but we should not forget that the balance in this team is missing. The class of the defenders of Manchester United doesn’t match the level of the attackers, and The Red Devils are suffering against elite opposition. Since the start of the season, Manchester United don’t have a win against a team from Top 6 in recent years play hard against Tottenham.
Spurs warmed up for the game on Sunday with a third consecutive win against Chelsea, although the match was for Carabo Cup. The high confidence and the good mood in the team are visible in every game of Tottenham, while the excellent form of Harry Kane and Son Heung-min helped Spurs to score 15 goals in the last four games in the Premier League. We will avoid of predicting an eventual winner of this game because of the many questions surrounding United, but we are convinced that Tottenham are capable of scoring at least twice.
