Manchester United welcomes Tottenham Hotspur
Manchester United welcomes Tottenham Hotspur at the Etihad in a derby game from the 15th round of the Premier League. In our English Premier League predictions we will discuss this intriguing fixture with you.
Being 9th in the Premier League standings at the moment, Manchester United can’t be really proud with their performance so far. The Red Devils have won just four of their 14 matches since the start of the campaign, which is surely not good enough for this club. With a record of 4 wins, 6 draws and 4 losses, United’s manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer can’t feel safe about his job neither.
In the previous round Manchester United made another serious mistake. They hosted Aston Villa at the Old Trafford and it was a great opportunity to win, but instead of this they have won just a point after a 2-2 draw. Aston Villa’s Tom Heaton scored himself an own goal and Victor Lindelof scored for the hosts, but it was not enough. It’s not clear how much patience Manchester United’s board will show towards Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with results like this.
This game on Wednesday will be interesting because Jose Mourinho returns at the Old Trafford. The Red Devils’ former manager is now coaching Tottenham Hotspur, enjoying three wins in his first three matches at the Spurs.
During the weekend Tottenham Hotspur won again under Mourinho. The Londoners hosted AFC Bournemouth and it was not easy, but they managed to win with 3-2. Dele Alli scored a brace, while Moussa Sissoko also put the ball in the Cherries’ net.
Against Manchester United Jose Mourinho still can’t use his captain Hugo Lloris, while Ben Davies and Erik Lamela are also unavaliable.
We can’t wait to watch this clash between Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday. In our English Premier League predictions we can say that Spurs are feeling reborn since the arrival of Jose Mourinho, while the Red Devils are in a very suspicious form at the moment.
