Manchester United vs Tottenham Preview & Betting Tips

Manchester United will be looking to bounce back from their defeat at Brighton when they welcome Tottenham to Old Trafford on Monday night.

Manchester United will be looking to bounce back from their defeat at Brighton when they welcome Tottenham to Old Trafford on Monday night.

Jose Mourinho finds himself under increasing pressure following the shock 3-2 loss at the Amex Stadium amid speculation of a rift with executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and star man Paul Pogba.

United need to put that all to one side and get back to winning ways on Monday as they could find themselves six points adrift of Manchester City come kick off while Spurs will also open-up a six-point advantage if they come out victorious from Old Trafford.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men have taken maximum points from their opening two games having beaten Newcastle and Fulham but they should face a much stiffer test at United this weekend.

Recent record

Tottenham have a poor recent record at the Theater of Dreams as they’ve not taken a single point of scored a single goal in any of their last four trips to United so they need to put that right if they’re to announce themselves as genuine title contenders this season.

Despite United’s dominance in this fixture, this is arguably Tottenham’s best chance of getting a result at Old Trafford in recent years so Pochettino will be quietly confident of taking home all three points.

Betting tips

A quick look at the Premier League betting odds shows us that Man Utd are the 8/5 favourites with the bookmakers to win the game with Tottenham available at 37/20 and the draw on offer at 23/10.  Mourinho is usually cautious in these big games but he’s under pressure to get a win and the home crowd will be praying for some attacking football to ease the mood around the club so I’m hoping for an entertaining game.

In the last eight meetings both teams have only scored on one occasion, however, both teams have scored in all matches involving United and Spurs so far this season so we like the look of ‘both teams to score’ at odds of 10/13.  United should always be confident of scoring on home soil but they look vulnerable at the back so the likes of Harry Kane will fancy their chances, making BTTS a solid bet.

United are the team who needs to win this game more but Spurs are a very solid outfit these days and I think they’ll take a point. The draw at 23/10 is a decent bet but if you want more value then I’d go for 1-1 at 21/4.  For those wanting even more value, then stick Kane as an anytime scorer in a 1-1 draw for odds of 15/1.
