A much-needed break
Tottenham have had a poor season so far as they find themselves languishing in 8th. They sacked former manager Mauricio Pochettino earlier in the season, and things haven’t improved much under Jose Mourinho. He is back at his old club today, and he will desperately want a win; you can back a Tottenham triumph at 2/1. The break in the season should benefit Tottenham as they were on a rotten run of form and now have their star player Harry Kane back from injury.
A promising duo?
Manchester United have not been much better this season. However, the break came at a bad time as they were on a good run of form beforehand with the highlight being their 2-0 win over Man City. Paul Pogba will be back from injury, and a lot of people are excited to see the partnership in the middle of the park between him and Bruno Fernandes — a player that has been a revelation since signing in January. The Red Devils are at 27/20 to defeat Spurs.
Man Utd have won the previous two matches against Spurs with Marcus Rashford scoring three goals combined in both games, and he’s currently at 7/5 to score against Tottenham on Friday evening. Both sides have a similar quality of players and playing style so expect a close match here. Tottenham are the slight favourites due to being at home, but judging by the Bundesliga return — home advantage isn’t as crucial with no fans in the stadium. Mourinho has not fared well against his former clubs this season; already losing to Man Utd earlier in the season as well as two defeats to Chelsea. He’ll be hoping to turn the tide when it comes to facing his old teams.
Injuries and suspensions
Tottenham Hotspur: Dele Alli and Giovani Lo Celso.
Manchester United: n/a
There’s a good chance both teams will cancel each other out, and our betting tip is a draw at odds of 23/10.
