Manchester United welcome Tottenham Hotspur to Old Trafford this evening, along with former manager Jose Mourinho, who has a 100% record in his first three matches at the club, including coming back from 2-0 down against Olympiakos in the UEFA Champions League last week, winning 4-2. The former United manager will be happy to face United in their current form.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s United are not anything like the teams they have been at various times during the history of the club. Gone is that success, that determination, that winning mentality and it needs to all be rekindled once again, however that is possible. United will also face Manchester City this week, who are a team fallen from their last two seasons of dominance – a good time to face them?

United currently sit in ninth place in the Premier League, which will change as there are two matches which will be played in Tuesday evening, four more kicking off at the same time, one more 45 minutes later, two more on the following day. All these fixtures will be live on Amazon Prime in the United Kingdom, the first time Premier League football has been streamed on the platform.

Manchester United:

De Gea;

Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Young;

McTominay, Fred;

James, Lingard, Rashford;

Substitutes:

United and Tottenham Hotspur have played 191 times in the history of both clubs. United have won 91, drawn 48 and lost 52 times. The first match between the two clubs was played in 1899. United met Spurs at Wembley in January, winning 1-0. In the last ten matches, United have won six of them, losing four times. In the last nine matches, there has been a pattern; United WLWLWLWLW.

If that pattern continues, United are destined to lose at Old Trafford on Wednesday but they can break that pattern themselves, if they desire to. In the last match at Old Trafford, Spurs beat United 3-0 with a goal from Harry Kane and a brace from Lucas Moura. United last beat Spurs at Old Trafford in October 2017, a 1-0 victory with Anthony Martial scoring the winning goal in the 81st minute.
