Tottenham v Man Utd betting tips: Low may be way to go as Ole feels the heat
Tottenham v Man Utd betting tips and odds
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is in the spotlight once again as Manchester United travel to Tottenham for Saturday’s televised match.
The Red Devils were humiliated 5-0 by arch rivals Liverpool last weekend which led to speculation the Norwegian would be sacked but he remains in the dug-out for the trip to north London.
Despite their heavy defeat at Old Trafford, United are favourites to win this weekend, so let’s look at some of the options in our Tottenham v Man Utd betting tips.
United are 27/20 to beat a Tottenham team that progressed to the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup on Wednesday when they edged a low-quality encounter with Burnley.
Spurs once again struggled to create chances and it took a second-half header from Lucas Moura to settle the matter at Turf Moor where Dele Alli and Harry Winks did not even make the bench.
Tottenham are 19/10 to win this fixture for the first time in four years having lost 3-1 last season despite winning 6-1 at Old Trafford just over 12 months ago.

Both teams have scored in the last four meetings which is 4/7 but with Spurs struggling as a cohesive unit going forward, at least one team not to find the net looks a possibility at 13/10.
That’s been the case in three of Spurs’ four home games this season and, having failed to generate a shot in the second half of the 1-0 defeat at West Ham, under 2.5 goals at 21/10 is an interesting option.
Under 1.5 goals in the first half, two or fewer after the break and either team to win is priced at 5/4 as one of our Tottenham v Man Utd betting tips while Draw HT/Draw FT can be backed at 9/2.
Nuno Espirito Santo named a strong team for Wednesday’s win in which Harry Kane was captain.
Davinson Sanchez and Cristian Romero played in a back four behind Oliver Skipp and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg operating as holding midfielders in a 4-2-3-1 system.
Moura came on in the 25th minute for winger Bryan Gil, who limped off with what appeared to be a hamstring injury which will be assessed.

Son Heung-min and Tanguy Ndombele were on the bench but came on for the last quarter and are likely starters this weekend.
Solskjaer has to get his selections right on Saturday having kept faith with the same team that came back from two goals down to beat Atalanta in the Champions League for the clash with Liverpool.
However, they have had a free week to work on either a pressing game which let them down so badly against the Reds if that’s the way Solskjaer decides to go.
Paul Pogba starts a three-match ban for his dismissal against Liverpool but Raphael Varane and Anthony Martial are closing on returns.
Cristiano Ronaldo and Kane are the joint 7/2 favourites to get the ball rolling this weekend, although the latter has scored just once in the Premier League this season.
For Spurs, Son is 5/1 to bag the game’s opening goal, as he did in last season’s fixture, or 15/8 to score his fifth goal of the campaign having netted home and away against United in the 2020/21 campaign.
