Tottenham welcome Manchester United to White Hart Lane Sunday afternoon, as they look to confirm their second place standing in the Premier League. Pochettino’s side will hope to bounce back from their ‘unexpected’ loss to West Ham United last Friday at London Stadium.
Sunday’s match brings together the two teams which have lost the fewest games in the Premier League this season
Spurs come into this match, needing just one win to confirm their second place finish in the Premier League. Both Manchester United and Tottenham have lost only four matches all season, but they find themselves in 5th and 2nd respectively. If Spurs avoid defeat against United, they could go unbeaten at home for the first time in a league season since 1964/65
Tottenham with the home advantage are favourites in this tie, with their current position giving them lesser odds. A win for Spurs in this tie is available on SportyBet at odds of (1.71), to seal their second place spot in the current campaign. In Manchester United, they face a team who just qualified to the Europa League final, but were also defeated by Arsenal in their last league tie.
Spurs will be playing their last ever game at White Hart Lane, where they’ve been sensational this season – winning 16 of 18 unbeaten matches, including the last 13 in a row where conceded only six goals and have also scored twice or more in 13 of their 18 home league games. Over 1.5 goals for the hosts is priced at (1.88) with SportyBet.

Manchester United come into the match on the back of a 1-1 draw at home against Celta Vigo, a result that got them Europa League final qualification. The Red Devils’ 25 game unbeaten run in the Premier League is now over, and are now in sixth place in the Premier League – 19 points behind leaders Chelsea.
Mourinho will be looking to grab for his first win in four games, with Burnley the last time Manchester United won. United come into this match as underdogs and will be looking to get their 82nd win over Tottenham out of 155 matches between the two sides. A win for Manchester United to recover from last weekend’s defeat at Arsenal is available at odds of (1.71) on SportyBet.

Four of their seven away matches against top six teams since then have ended 0-0. A 0-0 correct score at SportyBet is a (11.02) punt. Marcus Rashford is (3.55) for odds of anytime goalscorer for United as they look to try and battle Arsenal for fifth place.

Win to nil for Tottenham in this tie is available at odds of (2.57), while a correct score of 2-0 win for them against United – as it happened against Man City, Chelsea and Arsenal is available at (7.70) on SportyBet.
