Featured Game | Manchester United vs. Tottenham Hotspur
Why you should back Manchester United
The Red Devils have lost just once in the past six meetings with Spurs (4-1-1), outscoring them 6-1 in winning the past two. Cristiano Ronaldo could be a game-time decision, and United would miss his nine goals, but it has talent in reserve. Bruno Fernandes (nine goals, six assists) wasn’t impressive against City, but it has the best defense in the Premier League. He should get help from Marcus Rashford (four goals) and Jadon Sancho, who scored his third in Sunday’s loss. Fernandes, who leads the EPL in key passes with 77, has the skills to set them up for success.
United is third in the Premier League in total shots with 397, which is 70 more than Spurs, and it has 133 on target, also third in the league. It has scored at least once in 11 of the past 12 games overall. The Red Devils are expected to get Raphael Varane and Luke Shaw back to bolster the defense, and goalkeeper David de Gea has been a steady presence in net.
Why you should back Tottenham
Spurs don’t fire as many shots as Manchester United, but they are far more efficient. They lead the Premier League in putting 39 percent on target, more than two percent better than any other team. United is tied for third-most attempts on target allowed, with the keeper forced to make a save on 137 of 382 (36 percent). That means there should be plenty of shooting lanes for Harry Kane and Son Heung-min, who have combined for 21 league goals.
Tottenham won the last meeting at Old Trafford 6-1, with Kane and Son each scoring twice. It also could catch Man U looking ahead to its Tuesday Champions League matchup with Atletico Madrid. Kane scored twice and Son once against Everton, and Sergio Reguilon also got on the board. The wing back leads the EPL in crosses into the penalty area with 22.
