Spurs versus Manchester United: (match preview)
How will Spurs cope without Harry Kane for the visit of Old Trafford on Saturday lunchtime? Well Mauricio Pochettino’s side are going to have to, with Spurs announcing on Friday morning that their top scorer will be unavailable for selection against Man United due to a slight hamstring tear. This comes as a massive blow for our side, after the huge disappointments of midweek, where we managed to mess up a two goal lead over West Ham in the Carabao cup, with the final result ending in a surprise 3-2 defeat. The sheer disappointment of that defeat will resonate across the whole of the Spurs fan base, but in saying that it would swiftly be forgotten about if we could pull off a good result against United tomorrow. Mourinho’s excellent side who sit in second position above of us only on goal difference in the table, had started the season brilliantly well until an unexpected slip up away to Huddersfield last Saturday. However, that is likely to be a rare blip, and he will be desperate for his side to get all three points on Saturday when these two teams meet. COYS
