Manchester United host Tottenham in the Premier League’s early kick off on Saturday and it may be worth backing the visitors in this standout clash in the latest round of fixtures.
United remain without key midfield pair Paul Pogba and Marouane Fellaini, while Eric Bailly is unlikely to feature after four games on the sidelines with a knock.
Jose Mourinho’s men slumped to a defeat at Huddersfield in their last Premier League outing and the manager will be demanding a response but Spurs have been in fine form of late – barring a midweek cup blip.
The north Londoners impressed in a 4-1 victory at Liverpool in their last league match but then blew a 2-0 lead in the Carabao Cup at home to West Ham.
Like his United counterpart, Mauricio Pochettino will be desperate to see his side bounce back and their away form this season suggests they can claim a win at Old Trafford.
Spurs have six wins from seven away games in all competitions this season and the only team who have denied them a victory is Real Madrid as the two sides played out a 2-2 draw in the Champions League.
United’s home form is equally as impressive as they have won all six of their matches at Old Trafford and have conceded just once but Spurs are by far and away the toughest opposition they will have faced on home soil so far.
A victory for Spurs at 12/5 is my top bet in this Premier League clash, while Dele Alli appeals at 9/4 to score at anytime as he has a goal in each of his last two appearances and tends to step up in the big games.
