Manchester United vs Tottenham
English Premier League
Date: 12 March 2022, Saturday
Kick-off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Old Trafford.
A place in the UEFA Champions League next season could be at stake on Saturday afternoon when Manchester United host Tottenham in the derby of Matchday No 29 in Premier League.
The two outfits will enter the tie in completely opposite moods. The Red Devils have not been pulling up any trees of late.
They continued a horrendous spell of form with a demolishing 4-1 loss to bitter city rivals Manchester City last Sunday at Etihad Stadium.
Manchester United are now winless in three straight Premier League games, a streak that dropped them out of the top-four in the standings.
Ralf Rangnick’s troops are now fifth with a one-point deficit to fourth-placed Arsenal who have three matches in hand.
The clash against Tottenham Hotspur is one of the last trains to catch for Rangnick and his troops if they want to stay in contention for the Champions League football next season.
Spurs are two points behind the Red Devils in the league standings but they also have two matches in hand on them.
Antonio Conte’s troops will travel to Old Trafford encouraged after a demolishing 5-0 victory over Everton in the last game of the previous Matchday.
Harry Kane confirmed his extraordinary form with a brace on Monday evening in London. The English talisman should have plenty of room to keep it going and find the back of the net past the leaky United back line here.
Manchester United vs Tottenham Head-to-head
- These two teams have offered some goals fests in their recent head to head encounters.
- Manchester United have been more successful lately with five wins, one draw, and one defeat in the last seven meetings with Spurs.
- We have seen at least three goals in each of the last three H2H affairs, including United’s 0-3 victory in London back in late-October last year.
Manchester United vs Tottenham Prediction
Manchester United will likely be without their main star Cristiano Ronaldo who mysteriously missed the city derby last weekend. The situation in their dressing room is far from ideal, especially after a catastrophe against the Citizens.
We thus see huge value in backing Tottenham to win at the odds of 3.30. You can also back Harry Kane to score anytime for the visitors at the 2.10 odds.
