Competition: Premier League
Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 8/11 @ 888sport
In what is a heavyweight showdown in the capital this weekend, Manchester United will make the trip to an inconsistent Tottenham on Sunday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, throwing away the lead away at relegation scrappers Newcastle when returning from the international break, Tottenham find themselves in the midst of a public struggle. With it appearing that the pressure is once again firmly on Jose Mourinho’s shoulders, Spurs are in a real uphill battle to secure any kind of European finish this season. Crashing out of the Europa League after that infamous 3-0 drumming away at Croatian outfit Dinamo Zagreb last month, the former Manchester United boss has seen his squad record just a single win from their last four matchups across all formats. Desperate to find a much-needed boost this weekend, there is no doubt that Tottenham fans will be calling on Harry Kane to spearhead their charge on home soil. Bagging a brace away at St. James’ Park last weekend in Spurs’ 2-2 draw, the England skipper has recorded 31 goals for club and country this season.
As for the visitors, while Manchester United might have seen Leicester end their FA Cup adventure thanks to a 3-1 defeat last month, the former Premier League champions have bounced back. Knowing they have the chance to cut City’s buffer at the top of the table on Sunday afternoon, The Reds were last seen in midweek when picking up an early Europa League advantage. Landing what was a deserved 2-0 win away at Spanish outfit Granada, United have now lost just one of their previous 17 matchups across all formats, a run that stems back to the end of January. Looking to get some revenge for that stunning 6-1 drumming when they welcomed Tottenham to Old Trafford in the reverse fixture, don’t be surprised to see a lively meeting in North London. With each of the last four meetings between United and Tottenham finishing with both teams finding the net, we’re backing a similar outcome this weekend.
