Manchester United vs Tottenham Match Details
Manchester United vs Tottenham kicks-off at Old Trafford at 19.30 on Wednesday 4 December.
Manchester United Form
After just 14 games, Manchester United find themselves an amazing 22 points behind Liverpool and eight points outside of a much sought-after top-4 spot.
It’s hard to know what to expect of the current Red Devils side, who were good enough to beat Chelsea 4-0 on the opening day of the season but have generally failed to shine since. They followed a 1-2 defeat by Crystal Palace by beating high-flying Leicester 1-0 and then drew 1-1 with both Arsenal and Liverpool. A 3-1 defeat of Brighton followed those results but a 2-2 draw against Aston Villa again showed that United fans can take nothing for granted.
Tottenham finished last season’s Premier League campaign poorly, especially on their travels, and that continued into this season despite drawing their first two away games 2-2 with Manchester City and Arsenal. That promise was soon eclipsed with defeats at Leicester and Brighton, whilst a draw against Everton followed.
But the arrival of Jose Mourinho has sparked a mini-revival which started with Tottenham’s first away win of the season at West Ham. A home win over Bournemouth followed, but it’s interesting that Tottenham took a 3-0 lead in both those games before conceding twice.
