Spurs flood the pitch in combined XI with misfiring Man Utd
Manchester United used to lick their lips whenever Tottenham came to town, but things have changed quite a bit at Old Trafford since the days of dominance under Sir Alex Ferguson.
Having failed to record a single win at Old Trafford in the Premier League era, Spurs have now left the Theatre of Dreams as owners of six points from their last two visits.
For this reason alone the Lilywhites’ make tempting 3/1 chances for a third successive victory in the north west when the teams collide in Mothering Sunday’s late kick-off.
Three points is all that separate these sides in the table, meaning a positive result for either would be hugely significant in the hunt for Champions League football.
Naturally, Louis van Gaal and his 5/6-rated charges will have other ideas.
For all their perceived problems United could still point to impressive home form only bettered by Chelsea this season, as a reason to be cheerful.
Although, a successful FA Cup raid by Arsenal last time out will give Spurs an extra lift as will their own form.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side arrive fresh from successive Premier League wins and judging by our lopsided mix and match XI, a 9/10 dabble on the Tottenham in the double chance market looks to be worth it.
