Tottenham vs Manchester United
International- Champions Cup
Date: Thursday, 25 July 2019
Kick-off at 12:30 UK / 13:30 CET
Venue: Hongkou Stadium (Shanghai).
Tottenham were impressive in their opening game against Juventus and snatched a last gasp winner in the dying minutes of stoppage time.
Lamela broke the deadlock in the first half, only for Higuain and Ronaldo to fire their side back into the lead after the restart. A goal from Lucas Moura, followed by a long-range screamer from Harry Kane was enough to deprive Sarri of a win in his first game in charge of the side from Turin.
Spurs enjoyed more time on the ball in that game, while the Italian outfit were far more offensive with more attempts at goal.
The Red Devils, on the other hand, edged it past Inter Milan in their opening clash with Mason Greenwood scoring the winning goal for his side. There was certainly no shortage of goal scoring opportunities for United in that match and they threatened to extend their lead with a total of eight shots on target.
A win on Thursday for Solskjaer’s men is doubtful, with Tottenham likely to come out on top with back to back wins.

Tottenham vs Manchester United Prediction
Pochettino’s side are likely to take all three points when they face off against Manchester United this week in Shanghai.
The squad made a terrific comeback in their previous game, which saw them coordinate nineteen attacks in total, seven more than their foes.
United should have won the clash against Inter Milan with a lot more goals in the bag, and only have themselves to blame for the slender one-goal advantage.
The two teams certainly have a lot of firepower under their hood, so expect a high scoring clash to unfold, with Spurs tasting success by not more than a narrow margin.
