Man Utd vs Tottenham 28/10/2017
Tottenham are looking for their first consecutive league wins over United for the first time since April 1990. That’s more than a quarter of a century! To do just that, they will have to score at Old Trafford, which they haven’t done so in their last three league visits.
Overall, the Red Devils have won 20 of the 25 EPL meetings here, which also translates into Spurs’ worst away record against any club in the division. Still, the London side will be encouraged that they have gathered four wins in the last 10 meetings between the sides, the most recent a 2-1 victory at White Hart Lane’s farewell game.
Jose Mourinho simply loves pitting his managerial skills against Mauricio Pochettino, having won all five of his home matches by an aggregate score of 15-1.
Mourinho will be boosted by the return to fitness of defenders Eric Bailly and Phil Jones, but Paul Pogba and Marouane Fellaini remain out with injuries. Tottenham ace striker Harry Kane should be fit despite suffering a hamstring pull in the emphatic 4-1 win over Liverpool last weekend. Mousa Dembele and Danny Rose are also back in full training.
