Manchester United vs Tottenham Preview
Manchester United host Tottenham in the Premier League this weekend and the Red Devils will be hoping to put together a winning run now.
Mourinho’s men bounced back from the loss against Huddersfield with a win over Swansea.
Defensively they have been excellent at home but facing an in-form Harry Kane will be tricky for the Manchester United back four.
Spurs slipped to a shock 3-2 defeat at home to West Ham on Wednesday and they will be desperate to bounce back with a win. A win over United would be massive for their confidence and Pochettino will fancy his chances here.
Both Pochettino and Mourinho are very good managers and it should be a fascinating tactical contest.
