Team News: Tuanzebe starts; Mitchell and McTominay on the bench

Manchester United have travelled to North London for the second week running in the Premier League, this time facing Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane, the last match to be played at the North London stadium, a sad day for Spurs. Chelsea have already secured the Premier League title with a 1-0 victory over West Bromwich Albion on Friday evening, so Spurs have nothing to win this season but will need to ensure their challengers for second place in the league do not get an edge over them. United have nothing other than pride to play for in the league, sitting in sixth place and needing a top four finish to earn UEFA Champions League football next season, but the fact they will face Ajax in the UEFA Europa League final still gives them a chance of Champions League football by winning the only major trophy the club have failed to win in their history. Here is today’s team news for both teams…

Manchester United:

De Gea;

Bailly, Jones, Smalling

Tuanzebe, Carrick, Rooney, Blind;

Mata, Martial, Lingard


Romero; Darmian, Mitchell; Herrera, Mkhitaryan, McTominay; Rashford

Tottenham Hotspur:


Trippier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Davies;

Wanyama, Dier;

Eriksen, Alli, Son;



Vorm; Walker, Wimmer; Nkoudou, Sissoko, Dembele; Janssen

Spurs and United have an 185 match history with United winning 88 times, drawing 48 times and Spurs winning 49 times. Today could mark their 50th victory over United at White Hart Lane, which would be a fitting send-off for the team who will be playing all home matches on the hallowed turf of Wembley next season, which did not hold much luck for them in the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Europa League this season. One thing is for sure, Jose Mourinho will be looking to win in London, losing against Chelsea and Arsenal and only beating both Crystal Palace and West Ham United in the capital. United could make it three victories in London this season, or three defeats – or maybe even two wins, two losses and one draw. Either way, United will need to be strong to get the better of Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs side.
