Hoping to lay down a far more convincing marker on Sunday afternoon, Manchester United will be hoping to pick up their first victory at Old Trafford when they host Tottenham from behind closed doors.

Eventually managing to pick up back-to-back victories away at Brighton over the past week, including that dramatic 3-2 win at the Amex last weekend, the former Premier League champions are desperate to put their 3-1 defeat against Crystal Palace last month fully behind them.

On the flip side, managing to extend on their Europa League adventure thanks to an eventful 7-2 win against Israeli outfit Maccabi Haifa on Thursday night, Spurs find themselves in the midst of a six-match unbeaten run since opening the New Year with a 1-0 defeat against Everton on the opening weekend.

While the two sides might have played out a 1-1 draw when they faced off back in June when returning from the break, Manchester United do hold an eye-catching record against the Lilywhites on home soil.

Collecting 10 points over their last four meetings against Spurs and remarkably winning seven of their last eight matchups against Sunday’s guests at Old Trafford, a similar home victory this weekend can be found priced at 10/11 with Unibet.

United’s defensive issues

While Manchester United’s heavily altered squad might have managed to land a 3-0 win away at Brighton on EFL Cup duties earlier in the week, the Reds have struggled to lay down much of an early marker.

Opening the 2020/2021 campaign with what was a shock 3-1 defeat at home against Crystal Palace a fortnight ago, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men have plenty of question marks surrounding some worrying issues at the back.

Extremely lucky to have managed to leave the Amex with all three points amidst even more VAR drama, United saw Brighton hit the woodwork five times, a Premier League record for a single contest.

With many in their camp still disappointed by what has been a summer transfer window that has seen them fail to make any real alterations, United are a side desperately seeking a more polished display.

Also now shipping at least a pair of strikes in three of their last four Premier League contests at Old Trafford continuing on from last season, you might be interested to know that United are priced at 2/1 with Bet365 to once again ship over 1.5 goals this weekend.

Spurs march on

While Jose Mourinho might have been more than vocal about his side’s stacked schedule since opening the 2020/2021 campaign, Spurs managed to extend on their European adventure on Thursday night.

Landing a 7-2 win against Israeli outfit Maccabi Haifa earlier in the week and also coming past Chelsea thanks to penalties victory on EFL Cup duties, the former United boss will be desperate to put last weekend’s VAR controversy behind them.

Despite completely outplaying Newcastle in North London and fully deserving of maximum points, Eric Dier’s questionable injury-time handball saw the Magpies head back to St. James’ with an underserved point.

Now in the midst of a six-match unbeaten run across all competitions, Mourinho would have also been glad to see attacking talisman Harry Kane extend on his early-season purple patch in midweek.

Bagging a hat-trick in the Europa League on Thursday night, the England skipper has now bagged six goals in as many appearances and you might be interested to know that Kane can be found priced at 6/4 with 888sport to find the net at Old Trafford on Sunday.
