Man Utd boss Jose Mourinho

Tottenham vs Man Utd: Spurs to catch Red Devils napping

Kick-off: 1630, 11/04/2021

Stadium: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

TV: Sky Sports

Tottenham are rated a value bet to enhance their Premier League top-four hopes by seeing off Manchester United in London on Sunday.

The Red Devils have given themselves a bit of breathing space with regards achieving the same target and may be distracted by their Europa League duties here.

We reckon 19/10 for a home win is tempting enough to be our first Tottenham vs Man Utd prediction.

A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds

Spurs will have been frustrated by dropping a couple of points when drawing 2-2 against Newcastle at St James’ Park.

Harry Kane’s double turned things around following Joelinton’s opener but Arsenal loanee Joe Willock levelled the scores again late on.

“It was a bad result,” moaned Jose Mourinho. “I’m not being disrespectful to Newcastle but I think that is a match to win, so the result is not a good one.

“If I analyse the performance, separate it from so many mistakes that lead to instability and instability leads to hope in the opposition, if I want to analyse it separate from that, I think we were good, I would say very good in some moments.

“But I cannot do it. The game belongs to every moment and I cannot separate the game from these moments of instability and that’s the reason why we didn’t win the game.”

Tottenham were hampered by having defenders Serge Aurier and Toby Alderweireld unavailable due to reporting back from international duty too late to undergo pre-training Covid tests.

However, a full week to prepare for this contest should help Mourinho to iron out his team’s “instability” and a sharper performance is expected.

Looking at the Tottenham vs Man Utd odds, we like 17/5 for Spurs to prevail and over 2.5 goals, especially when remembering their 6-1 romp at Old Trafford in October.

Last Tottenham line-up: Lloris, Reguilon, Sanchez, Rodon, Tanganga, Hojbjerg, Lo Celso, Ndombele, Kane, Moura, Vinicius.

A Look At Manchester United’s Betting Odds

United are 11 points above Tottenham in second place after coming from behind to beat Brighton 2-1 at Old Trafford.

Danny Welbeck returned to haunt his old club early on but Marcus Rashford equalised just after the hour mark and Mason Greenwood struck an 83rd-minute decider.

Reflecting on the second-half rally, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: “We’ve done that a few times this season, haven’t we? We’re getting used to it.

“You don’t really want to be in those positions, 1-0 down. It was a sloppy mistake in midfield, we don’t stop the cross, we don’t defend the cross, so we gave ourselves work to do.

“But I think we’ve done that so many times this season that the team doesn’t panic.

“We know we have to build momentum, the ball has to move quicker, we have to move more in tandem with each other.

“The two goals we scored were good goals and we deserved to win the game in the end, I felt.”

Whether the Red Devils were worthy winners is open to debate, though, as Brighton had chances to be further ahead at the break and looked unlucky not to be awarded a late penalty.

United have won eight Premier League matches in which they conceded first but falling behind versus better-class opposition is not to be recommended.

With the visitors coming off Thursday’s tricky trip to Granada, 18/5 for Spurs to lead at half-time and full-time is added to our Tottenham vs Man Utd betting tips.

Last Man Utd EPL line-up: Henderson, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw, Wan-Bissaka, Pogba, Fred, Fernandes, Cavani, Rashford, Greenwood.
