What Trueform says for Tottenham vs Man Utd
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer faces by far the stiffest test of his short Manchester United reign when taking on Tottenham at Wembley on Sunday.
Spurs beat the Red Devils 3-0 at Old Trafford earlier this season and are still very much in the hunt for a first title triumph since 1961.
We fear this will be a reality check for the visitors and 11/10 for a home win is a confident Tottenham vs Man Utd prediction.
A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds
Tottenham made it seven wins from their last eight matches in all competitions when beating Chelsea 1-0 here in the opening leg of their EFL Cup semi-final clash.
Harry Kane put Spurs in the driving seat to reach the decider after claiming a controversial penalty, with the England striker ruled not to have been offside in the build-up by VAR.
That followed a 7-0 FA Cup success at Tranmere and a 3-0 Premier League triumph over Cardiff in Wales, so Mauricio Pochettino’s side are very much back on track after ending 2018 with a surprise loss to Wolves.
Pochettino is actually favourite to become the next permanent United manager but only signed a new five-year contract in May and is clearly content with his current post.
“I hope, or I wish, to be here 20 years, and decide to leave or to finish my career here,” said the Argentine. “I am so focused here and want to help the club to achieve what the club want to be in history.”
Spurs play with the pace and tempo which United strive to emulate, but may not be quite ready to cope with just yet.
Looking at the Tottenham vs Man Utd odds, we reckon 12/5 for the hosts to lead at half-time and full-time is fair value.
Last Tottenham EPL line-up: Lloris, Trippier, Rose, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Winks, Sissoko, Alli, Eriksen, Son, Kane.
Tottenham will assess Lucas Moura due to a knee injury. Eric Dier (appendicitis) and Victor Wanyama (knee) miss out, while Jan Vertonghen and Mousa Dembele are back in training but not match-fit.
A Look At Manchester United’s Betting Odds
Solskjaer enjoyed a fifth straight success as United’s interim boss when Juan Mata’s penalty and a Romelu Lukaku strike helped them to a workmanlike 2-0 win over Reading in the FA Cup.
However, the Red Devils’ four previous Premier League victories came against teams in the bottom half of the table and this represents a huge step up in class.
Defender Phil Jones commented: “We are in good form and have some momentum going. We have steadied the ship a bit.
“Possibly Spurs will be an indicator for us and how far we can go, but it is a game we need to win.”
United will take heart from last year’s 2-1 FA Cup semi-final win over Tottenham at this venue and do at least look lively going forward again now, netting 16 times in their run of victories.
Solskjaer is stretched at the back, though, with Eric Bailly suspended and Chris Smalling and Marcos Rojo injured, so 12/5 for a home win and both teams to score is added to our Tottenham vs Man Utd betting tips.
Last Man Utd EPL line-up: De Gea, Lindelof, Jones, Shaw, Valencia, Pogba, Mata, Herrera, Matic, Rashford, Martial.
United are set to welcome back Paul Pogba after a knock forced him to sit out the FA Cup success.
