Spurs under 23’s versus Manchester United: (match preview)
Just one day after Pochettino’s side said farewell to White Hart Lane with a memorable 2-1 victory over Manchester United, a day a later our under 23’s face the Red Devil’s in their final game of the PL2 season (which is live on MUTV, kick off: 7pm.) This evenings game which is being held at Old Trafford is in many ways a meaningless game in what has been a terribly sad time for our clubs academy. Safe from the threat of relegation I’m expecting Spurs to field a very youthful side for this evenings game, with many under 18’s in contention to start against Man United, I’m hoping to see the inform Jack Roles make his debut. It will be a tough game, but the young Lillywhites will be eager to sign off with a victory over United. The players to watch out for are the already featured Scott McTominay, winger Callum Gribbin and the well known defender Cameron Borthwick-Jackson. COYS
Absentees: Tom Glover (suspended).
My predicted lineup: (3-4-2-1) Whiteman, Maghoma, Tanganga, Lesniak, Ogilvie, Amos, Goddard, Brown, Edwards, Tracey, Sterling.
My predicted score: 3-2 to Spurs.
previous meetings: 1-1.
One to watch: Manchester United’s rising star Scott McTominay, the midfielder has made the bench for Mourinho’s senior side over the past couple of matches, and also made his debut against Arsenal in a 2-0 defeat at the Emirates stadium.
