Tottenham vs Man Utd: Solskjaer to receive vital boost

Kick-off: 1730, 30/10/2021

Stadium: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

TV: Sky Sports

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has had a knack of pulling out crucial wins when the pressure is on and Manchester United can help him out again at Tottenham.

The Red Devils have struggled against high-pressing teams of late but may find the pace more to their liking when facing Spurs.

Punters can get 13/10 for an away win here and that is our first Tottenham vs Man Utd prediction.

A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds

Tottenham boss Nuno Espirito Santo has also spent much of the season under scrutiny and was back in the bad books following a 1-0 loss at West Ham.

Spurs, who had already lost to Crystal Palace, Chelsea and Arsenal, went down in another capital city derby to Michail Antonio’s goal at the London Stadium.

That 72nd-minute strike came during a disappointing second-half performance where they failed to have a shot on goal.

“There is no big difference between the teams fighting for the European places but consistency is the key,” said captain Hugo Lloris.

“When you face a direct opponent, you have to take the points or, at least, not lose. It is painful and we need to move on.

“We cannot give up – there are many games ahead of us and we are going to try to improve individually and collectively.”

Spurs have yet to be involved in a Premier League draw this term but six of their nine top-flight fixtures have been decided by the narrowest of margins.

That stat makes Tottenham vs Man Utd odds.

Last Spurs EPL line-up: Lloris, Reguilon, Romero, Emerson, Dier, Hojbjerg, Ndombele, Skipp, Son, Kane, Moura.

Tottenham are assessing Bryan Gil, who is a doubt after picking up a hamstring injury in the EFL Cup win at Burnley. Ryan Sessegnon (hamstring) is the only confirmed absentee.

A Look At Manchester United’s Betting Odds

United had no answer to the pace and movement of Leicester in a 4-2 away defeat and put in a shambolic display when humiliated by Liverpool on home turf.

Dreadful defending allowed Naby Keita and Diogo Jota to score early on and Mohamed Salah’s hat-trick completed a 5-0 rout.

Things could have been even worse after Paul Pogba was sent off but David De Gea saved well from Trent Alexander-Arnold and then the visitors eased off.

That shocking performance left United with just one point from four top-flight fixtures, with Solskjaer reflecting on his “darkest day” at the helm as his position became more precarious than ever.

“We have to sort the frame of minds out and make sure we go into the next training session and the next game in the right frame of mind,” Solskjaer declared.

“Manchester United have had tough times, difficult times before and they have always bounced back and taken on challenges. Last season we were second and this season we have started badly.

“You have to get through that one and then start building performances, start building results and see where that take us at the end of the season.”

The key factor here could be that Nuno does not usually look to press opposing teams too much and a slower pace of play should suit United.

Come-from-behind Champions League wins over Villarreal and Atalanta may have helped to save Solskjaer while they also rallied to prevail at West Ham last month.

Odds of 21/4 for either team to win from behind here are tempting, especially as that bet would have paid out in both meetings last term.

We’ll also add 3/1 for an away victory and both teams to score to our Tottenham vs Man Utd betting tips.

Last United EPL line-up: De Gea, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw, Wan-Bissaka, Fred, Fernandes, McTominay, Ronaldo, Rashford, Greenwood.

United will be without Pogba as he begins a three-match domestic suspension. Raphael Varane and Anthony Martial, who have missed the last three matches due to injury, could each make a return to action.
