Manchester United vs Tottenham prediction: How will Premier League fixture play out?

Jose Mourinho's Tottenham Hotspur visit Old Trafford to take on Manchester United on Wednesday evening.

The Portuguese has led Spurs to three successive victories since taking charge of the club, with a rejuvenated Dele Alli leading the charge for a top four spot. 

For United, however, fortunes under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer have been bleak this season with pressure now mounting on the manager after their 2-2 draw with Aston Villa on the weekend.

United insist Solskjaer has their full support, but a humbling by their former manager could spell the beginning of the end.

Here is everything you need to know:

Team news

Scott McTominay is expected to make his return from an ankle injury, while Jesse Lingard could start after Juan Mata’s disappointing performance against Villa. The game comes too soon for Paul Pogba, though, who Solskjaer confirmed is not yet ready to return.

Harry Winks could replace Tanguy Ndombele in midfield, while Danny Rose could return to counteract United’s pace down the flanks.

Predicted line-ups

Manchester United: Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Williams; McTominay, Fred; James, Lingard, Rashford; Martial

Tottenham: Gazzaniga; Aurier, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Rose; Dier, Winks; Sissoko, Alli, Son; Kane

When is it?

The match is on Wednesday 4 December.

When does it kick-off?

The match gets underway at 7:30pm.

How can I watch the match?

The match will be available to watch and stream on Amazon Prime

What are the odds?

Manchester United to win: 13/8

Draw: 12/5

Tottenham to win: 8/5

Prediction

The match will be frenetic with Mourinho’s former players desperate to stick it to him, while the manager himself will urgently want to get one over United at Old Trafford.

However, the two sides are on such dramatic different planes of momentum at the moment that, although United could start with a renewed vigour and desire, Spurs’ quality and form should ultimately shine through in a hot-blooded encounter.

Manchester United 1-3 Tottenham
