Tottenham Hosspur

Tottenham have been highly inconsistent in the Premier League this season, registering 5 wins and 4 defeats in 9 games. They also suffered a defeat against West Ham in their last league fixture.

However, they look to build on the victory against Burnley in the EFL Cup when they host Man Utd on Sunday.

The spotlight will be on Heung-min Son, who has been impressive for Nuno Santo’s side this season while the club’s talismanic figure Harry Kane has suffered a great dip.

The midfield duo of Tanguy Ndombele and Oliver Skipp are expected to play a huge role against the Red Devils.

Possible line-ups

Hugo Lloris; Emerson, Cristian Romero, Eric Dier, Sergio Reguilon; Oliver Skipp, Pierre Emile Hojbjerg; Lucas Moura, Tanguy Ndombele, Son Heung-min; Harry Kane

Manchester United

All eyes will be Ole Gunnar Solskjaer when the Red Devils take on Nuno Santo’s Spurs this weekend.

The Red Devils have clearly slumped of late and the heavy defeat against Liverpool has cast doubts on Solskjaer’s future.

The Norwegian manager knows the importance of Saturday’s fixture given that his job is at stake.

United could well be feeling low in confidence due to their late struggles and they would be hoping to restore a bit of momentum against the North Londoners.

Paul Pogba’s absence due to red card suspension would be a huge blow for Man Utd, while Cristiano Ronaldo, who has failed to score in the last four league games, has to rise to the occasion. Marcus Rashford has made an instant impact since his return from injury.

Possible line-ups

David de Gea; Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Raphael Varane, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw; Nemanja Matic, Fred; Jadon Sancho, Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford; Cristiano Ronaldo
