Tottenham vs Man Utd Prediction: PL | 11.04.2021
Jose Mourinho is putting his team under fire from Tottenham for taking on former Manchester United employers in London on Sunday from 4.30pm GMT. This game will be televised live to a global audience, and as the locals fight to save their season and finish in the top four, 90 minutes of drama await.
The Spurs and Red Devils served up a seven-goal thriller at Old Trafford earlier in the season, with the Spurs rioting. Londoners won 6-1 that day, but would take a win of any description here. A late 1-0 winner would suit fans as well as they know that points are now more important than performance.
Tottenham fighting for the fourth
Tottenham are embroiled in a battle to finish fourth and secure Champions League football for next season. The home side started the week in fifth place with 49 points on the board, two short of city rivals Chelsea, fourth and 11 short of their opponents for this game. The hosts have 14 wins and seven draws against nine losses, scoring 51 goals and conceding 32.
Spurs have struggled to stay consistent in recent weeks and their last three games have been a draw-win-draw. They followed an impressive 2-0 win over Aston Villa on the road with a disappointing 2-2 draw at St James Park last week. Harry Kane scored a double quickfire in that game to put the Spurs ahead, but the Magpies fought back, scoring an equalizer with 85 minutes on the clock. It was a big blow for the team, and a Mourinho did not take well.
United the best of the rest
Man United started the year with a strong chance to challenge Man City for the Premier League title, but they will end up like the best of the rest behind Cityzens. The visitors continue to improve under manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. A silver medal with as small a gap as possible between the first and second would be considered a great effort. They are going in the right direction. This cannot be questioned.
United come to London undefeated in their last five games with nine points collected from the previous nine. They beat Brighton 2-1 at Old Trafford last week with the goals scored by Rashford and Greenwood. Man Utd got the result they wanted but had to fight for a goal to get it.
Prediction Tottenham vs Man Utd
How Tottenham beat Man Utd at Old Trafford earlier in the season will give home fans reason to be confident. However, the hosts have struggled in recent weeks and need to be at their best to defeat an opponent who is determined and happy to do things the wrong way.
Man Utd have responded well after following last weekend against the Seagulls but need to defend themselves better if they are to face a host under pressure and desperate to return to victory.
