What Trueform says for Man Utd vs Tottenham
Tottenham have a poor record at Old Trafford but will fancy their chances of getting something out of Monday’s clash with Manchester United.
Spurs have kicked off the new Premier League campaign with a couple of decent wins, whereas the Red Devils are reeling from a disappointing loss at Brighton.
Home advantage has to be considered, though, so we reckon 21/10 for a draw is the way to go for our main Man Utd vs Tottenham prediction.
A Look At Manchester United’s Betting Odds
United did just enough to see off Leicester at this venue but were then well below par for large parts of a 3-2 defeat at Amex Stadium.
Romelu Lukaku’s header and a late Paul Pogba penalty made the scoreline look respectable, but the overall impression was of a team with plenty of troubles, especially at the back.
Jose Mourinho’s side struggled for urgency and fluency on the south coast, although Pogba insisted it was not for the want of trying.
The World Cup winner said: “We definitely don’t want to lose two games in a row, so we’re going to have to get ready and play much, much better.
“We’re not here just to play games and be in the Premier League, we are here to win, we are Manchester United, and that’s what we do. We want to win trophies.
“There’s lots of games still and we have to stay positive, and by staying positive is how we will fight for a good result against Tottenham.”
The Red Devils were only beaten twice at home last season and Spurs have lost on their last four visits, so we think United can avoid another defeat.
A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds
Tottenham haven’t been totally convincing in beating Newcastle 2-1 and Fulham 3-1 but they do have a settled side which plays with energy and enthusiasm.
Lucas Moura broke the deadlock against the Cottagers, Kieran Trippier fired in an excellent free-kick and Harry Kane ended his August hoodoo to wrap up victory.
Trippier said of his strike: “I am happy it went in. I think it was a crucial time to get a goal, no matter who scored it, because they were getting on top of the game.
“They had scored and gained a lot of momentum, but I think my goal threw them a bit. It was a massive goal in terms of the game.”
Admitting that Fulham were on the front foot entering the final quarter of an hour does suggest Spurs have yet to fully hit peak form following a World Cup summer, though.
Let’s round off our Man Utd vs Tottenham betting tips by taking 11/2 for a 1-1 stalemate.
Brighton 3-2 MAN UTD – Romelu Lukaku, Paul Pogba (pen)
