Our prediction for this Premier League match:
All eyes will be on Tottenham Hotspur Stadium when Tottenham and Manchester United go head to head in the Premier League derby. Spurs experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a heavy 6-1 loss to Newcastle, with the team moving away from the Champions League berth. Pape Matar Sarr should drop to the bench following his under-par performance in Sunday’s defeat, with Davinson Sanchez likely to step up.
The Red Devils, on the other hand, are eyeing their fourth consecutive league win. Manchester United are eager to stay in top four, and we predict that they will take advantage of Tottenham’s shaky defence. All Heaton, Martinez, Varane, McTominay, Garnacho, and Van de Beek miss out with injuries, while Fred is pushing for a start after coming as a substitute in the FA Cup triumph over Brighton at the weekend. Anthony Martial is widely expected to lead the line for the visitors.
Highlighted Player (Harry Kane):
Widely regarded as one of England’s best strikers at the moment, Harry Kane enjoyed a meteoric rise at Tottenham Hotspur, scoring 21 Premier League goals during the 2014/2015 campaign to be voted PFA Young Player of the Year.
The highly rated striker went on to surpass that achievement the following season as he helped Tottenham Hotspur mount a serious title challenge for the first time in club’s recent history and he made seamless transition to international football. Kane scored four goals in his first ten appearances for England to prove he was here to stay and at the same time established himself as a first choice striker in Roy Hodgson’s squad ahead of the Euro 2016 finals.
Kane is a modern striker, who is extremely dangerous in the opposition box, but it was some outstanding goals from distance as well as link-up play with teammates that earned him an excellent reputation in world football. Kane is expected to lead both Tottenham and England in years to come, that is if he can resist the lure of top European clubs that continue to cast admiring glances his way.
Highlighted Team (Manchester United):
Over the years Manchester United have established themselves as one of the greatest clubs in world football. The Red Devils have won three European Cup (Champions League) trophies and they have clinched no less than 20 Premier League titles.
A number of top-class players were part of Manchester United in the past, but, no doubt, the club’s biggest legend is coach Sir Alex Ferguson, who was in charge of the team for 26 years. During Alex Ferguson’s spell at Old Trafford the club won a number of trophies, but the Red Devils have been struggling in all competitions ever since he retired. Louis van Gaal helped Manchester United win the FA Cup trophy in the 2015/2016 season, with Jese Lingard scoring the winner in the 2-1 triumph over Crystal Palace at Wembley Stadium.
The likes of Bobby Charlton, Paul Scholes, Roy Keane, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo, George Best and Eric Cantona are the football stars that graced Old Trafford for Manchester United.
