Manchester United have rattled off three straight pre-season wins but face a stiff test against Tottenham in the International Champions Cup.
Spurs looked pretty sharp when edging out Juventus 3-2 in this tournament and have a more settled set-up than the Red Devils under Mauricio Pochettino.
We think 8/5 for the London outfit to prevail in Shanghai is the way to go with our opening Tottenham vs Man Utd prediction.
A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds
Tottenham were on the ball from the outset when facing Juve in Singapore and Erik Lamela opened the scoring on the half-hour mark after Gianluigi Buffon parried 17-year-old Troy Parrott’s effort.
The Italian giants responded strongly after the break and equalised through former Chelsea striker Gonzalo Higuain, before star man Cristiano Ronaldo fired his side ahead.
However, Lucas Moura levelled things up again and then Harry Kane settled the issue with an outrageous stoppage-time strike from the halfway line.
Club-record signing Tanguy Ndombele quickly made an impression and head coach Mauricio Pochettino was pleased with the outing.
He said: “We are happy with the performance, but the most important thing is that all the players finished in a good condition to train and build step by step our fitness.”
A Look At Manchester United’s Betting Odds
United followed up a 2-0 win over Perth Glory and a 4-0 drubbing of Leeds in Australia by shading Inter Milan 1-0 in Singapore.
Exciting youngster Mason Greenwood continued his good run of form by netting against the Nerazzurri with a composed finish.
The Red Devils also hit the woodwork twice, while new capture Aaron Wan-Bissaka was named man of the match after an athletic display.
Fellow summer signing Daniel James is another to have created a good impression and David De Gea appears ready to pledge his future to the club, so lots of things are going right for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
However, we just feel Spurs remain far more like the finished article after finishing five points clear of United in the Premier League table and reaching the Champions League final.
