Spurs’ Under 23 side will play their first competitive game of 2022, when they face Manchester United at Leigh Sports Village, on Monday evening (the game starts at 19:00pm). Wayne Burnett’s side are currently in third place in the league standings, while Manchester United are in seventh place in Division One. When these two teams met in the league back in October, Wayne Burnett’s side won the match 1-0, but it was a very close and competitive game. Manchester United are a team of very talented players, such as Shola Shoretire, Charlie McNeill and Alvaro Fernandez. This will be another tough game, but Spurs are in great form at this level and if they play like they have recently then they have a good chance of getting a good result. I would like to wish Spurs all the very best of luck for the game.
My predicted lineup: Lo-Tutala, Lavinier, Fagan-Walcott, Omole, Cesay, Lyons-Foster, White (c), Markanday, John, Devine, Clarke.
Subs from: Oluwayemi, Paskotši, Matthew Craig, Michael Craig, Santiago.
Previous meeting: Spurs 1-0.
My score prediction: Spurs 2-1.
My one to watch: Shola Shoretire. The Manchester United forward really impressed in the reverse fixture in October, and his skill on the ball was very good. Shoretire has scored four goals and provided two assists from ten Premier League 2 appearance this season.
