Manchester United vs Tottenham Hotspur
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 4 October 2020
Kick-off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Old Trafford.
These are two titans from the PL, and either team has ambitious objectives for this new season. And there’s also a rich history between the two clubs. The most prominent factor fueling the rivalry would be the fact that Jose Mourinho’s previous gig was with the Red Devils, before being sacked.
Meanwhile, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men are determined to put an end to the domination of their two arch-rivals. They could not go another campaign without a title.
However, competition is at its very peak, and even one dropped point could cost them at the end.
Likely, we can count on the Devils to come out with guns blazing this weekend. Moreover, a win against a major team like the Spurs would also be a confidence-booster going forward.
In the meantime, after an appearance in the Champions League final in 2018-19, Mourinho’s men had underachieved a bit the last season. They are now in the Europa League, and had to settle for only a sixth-place finish in the PL.
This seems to have motivated them to have a vastly different campaign this time around. They are now in much better form, and have built up quite some momentum.
They are expected to give Solskjaer’s men a great fight.
All arrows point towards a high-scoring thriller at the Old Trafford.
Manchester United vs Tottenham Head-to-head (h2h)
- The latest encounter had ended in a 1-1 draw. The game had taken place just two months back.

- Not once have the hosts kept a clean sheet at this stadium since 2017.
- The last time these two locked horns at this ground, the home team recorded a 2-1 win.
Manchester United vs Tottenham Prediction
Solskjaer’s men recorded a 2-3 win on the road the last match-day, against Brighton. In the meantime, the Spurs were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Newcastle.
However, they made up for the draw with some great performances in their next two games. They defeated Chelsea in the very next game (EFL Cup), and registered a massive 7-2 win in their crucial Europa League playoffs.
They had also won six of their former seven overall fixtures, and remained unbeaten in 17 of their preceding 18 match-ups.
On the other hand, their counterparts are on a three-game winning run (where they scored three or more goals in each fixture), and remained unbeaten in 27 of their former 30 overall matches.
And at home, they were invincible in 21 of their last 25 appearances.
Suffice it to say that both squads are performing very well lately, and are determined to secure at the very least a top-three finish.
Going on, h2h encounters between the two teams have also had goals in plenty, and considering all these factors, expect another one of these high-scoring games this weekend.
