When Manchester United beat Tottenham 1-0 at Old Trafford back in October, it felt like a watershed moment for Jose Mourinho. Many expected Spurs to win that day, despite their poor record in games against the other big sides in the Premier League, but United ground out a result in the way Mourinho had made his name. But they slipped up in games they were expected to coast through over Christmas and that opened up a 12-point gap, which was 15, to neighbours and league leaders Manchester City.

Spurs have found consistency tough to come by too, and as a result were unable to put together a real title challenge themselves this season. Playing at Wembley was deemed to be their biggest issue, but recently they have been playing well there. With Harry Kane on form, they will be confident of another win in this one, even though an old nemesis Alexis Sanchez is set to make his debut.
Although Everton have been in poor shape recently, the way Spurs dismantled them a fortnight ago was very impressive. Kane netted a brace and they showed that, in reality, they should not have any issues reaching the top four. Yet, last week’s draw at Southampton has brought back the doubts.
GRAB THIS OFFER FROM CORAL
After that poor spell over Christmas, United have bounced back with recent wins in the Premier League over Stoke and Burnley once again putting them in the driving seat for second place.
Hugo Lloris and Toby Alderweireld remain doubts for this clash for Spurs, while United don’t have any fresh injury concerns and are likely to give Sanchez a debut after his move from Arsenal earlier this month.
