Tottenham vs Manchester United Preview: Team News, Injury Updates, Match Facts And Prediction

Tottenham Hotspur are in a negative spiral (remember who said this?) at the moment. The North London side host the defending champions, Manchester United on Sunday. Spurs come into this game after two back to back defeats in the premier league.

Manchester United on other hand are in decent form as they remain unbeaten in last 6 games. But after a disappointing draw with Cardiff City, Moyes would want his team to get maximum points against spurs.

Betting Tips & Prediction

Even though Tottenham was thrashed by Manchester City last week, playing at home will be a key factor in the game. So a safe bet is to go for a draw with some goals in the game as both teams have enough attacking talents in the squad.
