Date: Sunday 11th December 2.15pm
Live: Sky Sports 1
Referee: Robert Madley
Head2Heads: 3-0 Spurs, 1-0 Man United, 3-0 Man united, 0-0, Spurs 2-1.
This afternoons sees Spurs face Manchester United at Old Trafford in what will be an intriguing match for us Spurs fans. Mauricio Pochettino’s side ended their Wembley curse in midweek, beating CSKA Moscow 3-1 in Spurs’s last champions league match of the campaign. A victory in today’s match would see Spurs move up to fourth in the table, but we all know a victory will be hard to come by with Jose Mourinho’s classy side unbeaten in their last ten home matches. I’m hoping the lads can keep the momentum up and a victory today would leave us in a great position ahead of a string of matches in the festive period. COYS
My predicted lineup: Lloris, Walker, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Rose, Dier, Dembele, Eriksen, Alli, Son, Kane.
My score prediction: 2-1 to Spurs courtesy of goals from Harry Kane and Dele Alli.
One to watch: Paul Pogba, Manchester United’s world class central midfielder who was signed by united for a world record transfer fee in the summer of 2016.
