Manchester United v Tottenham Hotspur Preview, Premiership, Sunday 15th March 2015

Manchester United were eliminated from the FA Cup midweek when losing against Arsenal 2-1 at Old Trafford and that now leaves the club with no hope of securing any silverwear this season despite spending over £140 Million Pounds in the transfer windows and this will definitely be seen as another poor season from their fans.

The only chance left for Louis Van Gaal’s side to save face is for them to secure a top four finish in the league table which will bring Champions League football next season, but with a number of clubs including their visitors Tottenham Hotspur all in with realistic chances of making a top four finish, Manchester United really can’t afford to lose this game on Sunday afternoon as it could be disastrous.

Tottenham Hotspur will obviously be hoping to add more misery to United with a victory and with the way that Pochettino has his side playing this season they obviously have a chance and with the way Arsenal opened up the United defence midweek, players like Harry Kane and Eriksen will no doubt be licking their lips in anticipation and we look set for a very exciting game indeed and one that could go a long way to deciding which of these two clubs will be playing Champions League football next season.

Manchester United Team News:

The hosts will definitely be without Angel Di Maria and Jonny Evans as both players serve suspensions. Robin Van Persie is also unavailable as he continues to receive treatment for an ankle problem and Ashley Young will under take a late fitness test after picking up a knock in the 2-1 defeat against Arsenal midweek.

Tottenham Hotspur Team News:

The visitors have a fully fit squad for this game and so expect manager Pochettino to name his strongest lineup which is likely to see Harry Kane lead the attack up front with support in behind being provided by Eriksen, Lamela and Chadli.

223 of those Goals have came in the 77 previous matches played at Old Traford and this generates us an average goal scoring statistic of 2.89.

Based on both sets of data shown above, it does seem to indicate that this game should see a minimum of at least two goals scored with the possibility of three also being quite high.

Manchester United v Tottenham Hotspur Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

A must win game for both clubs really if they are to stay in contention of securing a top 4 finish and secure a place in the Champions League next season.

I was not too impressed at the way United played on Monday in the FA Cup against Arsenal and another performance like that could definitely see them punished again by a different North London club.

However, I doubt we will see a similar performance from the men in red and I do actually expect them to bounce back to winning ways on Sunday afternoon with Wayne Rooney being amongst the goalscorers.

Tottenham Hotspur obviously have a chance of causing an upset, but for me until their defensive problems are addressed they will always look vulnerable like they have all season as players like Kyle Walker, Danny Rose, Fazio and Chiriches are just not upto Premiership standard in my opinion and I fully expect them to concede at least a couple during this game.

Onto some predictions then and my Banker is going to be for Wayne Rooney to Score & Manchester United to Win as for me he is by far the most likely player for United that will score the goals in this game.

My Saver is going to be a correct score of 2-2, just in case a certain Harry Kane decides to put in another world class performance in front of the England manager who will be watching on from the stands.
