Tottenham and Manchester United look to be heading in different directions as they prepare to do battle in Sunday’s crucial Premier League clash.
Spurs have gone six games without a win in all competitions, whereas the Red Devils are pushing for a top-four finish following last weekend’s derby triumph.
With the hosts robbed of their main attacking threats through injury, 83/100 for the visitors to score first is our initial Tottenham vs Man Utd prediction.
A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds
Tottenham slipped down to eighth, four points below United, after following Premier League defeats to Chelsea and Wolves with a 1-1 draw at Burnley.
In a miserable run of results, Spurs have also been knocked out of the FA Cup on penalties by Norwich and lost 4-0 on aggregate to RB Leipzig in the Champions League.
Harry Kane, Son Heung-min, Steven Bergwijn and Moussa Sissoko were missing for Tuesday’s toothless 3-0 drubbing in Germany, with Davinson Sanchez also picking up an injury before the match.
“I think every team in the world would struggle with five or six of their most important players missing, it is as simple as that,” moaned Jose Mourinho.
“We have our problems and they don’t end with injuries, but no team in the world can cope with injuries for such a long time.
“You can cope for one or two matches. You cannot cope for four months. It’s too much.”
With Spurs lacking firepower up front and the visitors having a patchy overall record on the road, 19/20 for ‘no’ in the market on whether both teams will score appeals from the Tottenham vs Man Utd odds.
Last Tottenham line-up: Lloris, Alderweireld, Aurier, Tanganga, Winks, Lamela, Dier, Lo Celso, Sessegnon, Alli, Lucas Moura.
A Look At Manchester United’s Betting Odds
United’s top-four hopes appeared in ruins after suffering back-to-back league defeats in January, but picking up 11 points out of 15 has put them back in contention.
Confidence should be sky high following last Sunday’s 2-0 triumph over neighbours City, with Old Trafford erupting after Scott McTominay’s last-gasp clincher.
January’s capture of Bruno Fernandes from Sporting Lisbon has been the catalyst for a dramatic upturn in fortunes, with the Portugal midfielder putting in a series of high-class performances.
Asked how Fernandes had lifted the team, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer beamed: “It’s the whole club, because he has everything. He works hard and he is humble enough.
“He has the desire and commitment, but he has also got the X-factor, he is a risk-taker.
“He has the courage, he is brave enough to make mistakes and if you make enough mistakes it’ll be corrected into fantastic assists or goals.”
One player to benefit from the arrival of Fernandes has been Anthony Martial, who finished off a delightful free-kick pass from United’s new cult figure to break the deadlock versus City.
That made it 16 goals in all competitions for Martial this term and he is backed to continue a recent habit of scoring first in matches to complete our Tottenham vs Man Utd betting tips.
Those looking for a big-priced return can get 20/1 for Martial to open the scoring in a 1-0 away win.
Last Man Utd EPL line-up: De Gea, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw, Wan-Bissaka, Williams, Fred, Fernandes, James, Matic, Martial.
