The highly anticipated Premier League clash between Tottenham and Manchester United will take place at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London on Friday April 28th.
Tottenham Hotspur, in their previous league game, were handed a very heavy 6-1 defeat by Newcastle at St. James’ Park.
The Spurs currently sit fifth on the Premier League table with 53 points. After a poor performance against the Magpies, they will be desperately searching for a win in their upcoming league clash against the Red Devils. In their last five Premier League appearances, the Spurs have managed to secure only one win against Brighton. Two matches have resulted in draws against Southampton and Everton, and the remaining two have been defeats against Bournemouth and Newcastle.
On the other hand, after being ruled out by Sevilla in the UEFA Europa League, Manchester United will look to keep hold of their third position in the Premier League. The Red Devils lost 5-2 on aggregate against Sevilla after a 3-0 thrashing in the second leg at Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium in Sevilla.
United have managed to qualify for the FA Cup finals after winning on penalties against Brigthon following a 0-0 draw in the first 120 minutes. In their last three Premier League appearances, the Red Devils have won three points from this encounter. The top bookmakers in India have fantastic Premier League odds with them.
Problems seem to pile up for the very recently appointed Spurs head coach, Christian Stellini as he will want to get things right in order to secure the top four position in the league, which honestly looks very unlikely.
His idea of changing their formation went drastically wrong against Newcastle. Despite the goalkeeper, Hugo Lloris, Tottenham appear to be a defensively weak unit, having conceded 14 goals in their last five fixtures. When it comes to attack, they’ve scored nine goals in their last five matches.
The Spurs will most likely switch back to their old 3-5-2 formation.
Predicted Lineup: Lloris, Romero, Dier, Lenglet, Porro, Hojberg, Skipp, Perisic, Kulusevski, Son, Kane.
After securing a spot in the FA Cup final, Manchester United will now be looking to keep their UCL spot alive for the next season by securing third place in the league. They are 6 points clear of Tottenham, having played two fewer games than the former.
They would come strongly against a comparatively wounded opponent and try to extract three points from this encounter.
The Red Devils will most likely stick to their winning combination against Everton in early April, except for Martinez out due to injury.
Predicted Lineup: De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Lindelof, Dalot, Shaw, Casemiro, Eriksen, Antony, Fernandes, Rashford, Martial
Manchester United may be the better extractors in this encounter, considering Tottenham’s recent form, which has been poor. Both teams have sloppy defenses, and as a result, we anticipate a high-scoring affair. Based on our analysis, we predict a win for Manchester United in this huge encounter.
However, football is a highly unpredictable game; anything can happen, and we look forward to a competitive and exciting match at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
