Spurs were relentless in pursuit of the league, closing a ten-point gap to just four with nine straight victories before losing to West Ham on Friday night. Mauricio Pochettino’s men have also remained unbeaten at White Hart Lane all season and if they play to their ability, they can definitely keep that record by avoiding defeat.
Spurs will move across to Wembley next season, playing all of their home games at the national stadium while their new ground is getting built. This is the last ever football match to be played at White Hart Lane.
Jose Mourinho’s side are in a similar situation to Spurs, having seen a near 30 game unbeaten run at Arsenal last weekend. Mourinho has conceded the race for the top four is over and the Red Devils’ main priority is now winning the Europa League, which could tip the balance in Spurs’ favour even further.
The Red Devils have become something of draw specialists this season, with 13 to their name. With the second best away defence facing the best home defence, a draw at 19/5 on Betfair is most definitely a good value bet, though Spurs have won all but two on their own patch this season.
Marcus Rashford is at 13/5 with Betfair to score any time, and with goals against both Chelsea and Celta Vigo in recent weeks and Zlatan Ibrahimovic a long term injury absentee, he may well have just become United’s main threat, offering real value there. Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who scored at Old Trafford against Spurs is 7/2.
Spurs could be good value at 19/10 with a Betfair free bet to win with a -1 handicap, but it depends on how quickly they start. A tight game is forecast with both teams looking solid at the back, but our Premier League betting tip is a home win.
