Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, London, England
Key Stat: Manchester United are unbeaten in their last 23 Premier League away games
Expert Verdict: Tottenham Hotspur are becoming an increasingly hard team to predict with them becoming consistently more inconsistent as the season progresses. After returning from Villa Park with three points on March 21, most pundits expected another three points at St James’ Park last time out, but Mourinho’s men surrendered the lead with only five minutes remaining to leave with a solitary point. Manchester United, on the other hand, have been a model of consistency particularly away from home this season. They picked up three points on their last Premier League game on the road, albeit the short journey across Manchester.
Eleven points separate Tottenham Hotspur in 5th and Manchester United in 2nd, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Reds will be looking to avenge their 6-1 home thrashing from October. A win for Spurs would see them keep up the pressure on Chelsea and West Ham United in the race for the top four, a win for Manchester United would help them to keep distance between themselves and Leicester City in third. The Premier League match takes place at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on April 11 and the live action kicks off at 16:30 local time.

Bruno Fernandes opened the scoring from the penalty spot in the second minute of the game at Old Trafford earlier in the season, but that was as good as it got. 4-1 to Spurs by half time and 6-1 at the final whistle after goals from Ndombele, Son (2), Kane (2) and Aurier. The Reds have won this fixture 92 times to Spurs’ 53 since they first met in 1899. It is one of the few fixtures to have featured in every edition of the Premier League from 1992 onwards.
Manchester United are favourites and can be backed at 29/20 with 10Bet to win
Both teams to score has been set at 4/6 with Betway
Harry Kane is 6/5 with 10Bet to score at any time
Jose Mourinho never likes losing, least of all against his former clubs. Defeat for Spurs would be the final nail in the coffin of their Champions League ambitions whereas a Manchester United loss would suddenly see their grip on second place loosening. However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have a very impressive away record and we don’t see that ending this weekend in London. We are backing Manchester United to return to the north of England with three points in the bag.
