Manchester United will carry on their difficult run of games against Tottenham this weekend before playing Atletico Madrid on the 15th of March.
There is some good news for United in that their clash against Liverpool has been postponed, which was originally meant to be played after the Atleti game, due to FA Cup fixture pile-up.
This will give the Red Devils a chance to recuperate and maybe get a few wins under the belt before they go to Anfield for one of the hardest games of their season.
Tottenham have now put nine goals past their last two opponents without reply, a 5-0 win over struggling Everton and a 4-0 result over what was Marcelo Bielsa’s last game at Leeds.
This will be a huge confidence booster for the Spurs players because they had lost four of their previous five before their game against Leeds.
The Lilywhites will need to carry on this good run of form if they want to get a decent result here, and this will be such a crucial game for both teams’ pushes for Champions League football.
Man United To Win And -2.5 Team Goals
Tottenham are currently two points behind the Red Devils, but do have two games in hand, which would put them at a slight advantage. However, it doesn’t change the fact that both teams need to win this game in order to challenge Arsenal, who look like front-runners for the fourth spot.Man Utd And -2.5 Man Utd Team Goals
Spurs do not have a good time when they play against teams who finish in the top six; their record is W4-D3-L14 (P21) since the 17/18 season, whereas Man Utd’s record is W9-D6-L5 (P20) versus the same opponents.
It must be said that two of Tottenham's three wins against these opponents were Man Utd (3-0 and 6-1), both at Old Trafford. Ralf Rangnick has only played two teams inside the current top 6 during his tenure, which were a win over West Ham (1-0) and a 4-1 loss in their latest game against Manchester City.
Of the 20 aforementioned games, Manchester United have only scored over 2.5 goals once, in a 4-0 win over Chelsea.
Taking this and the Red Devil’s record against the top 6 teams into account, we think the best bet is Man Utd to win and -2.5 Man Utd goals.
