Manchester United host Tottenham this afternoon as both sides look to continue their bids to qualify for the Champions League this campaign.
Going into the start of this Premier League season, both sides would likely have outlined their plans to challenge for the title this term. That, however, has not gone to plan for either side, with finishing inside the top four a more realistic target for them both.
Jose Mourinho’s start to life at Old Trafford has been rocky, and he could undoubtedly do with a victory against one of the league’s top sides to light the spark for his side’s revival.
Tottenham will also be keen to bounce back from their Champions League exit with a victory today. It would be a significant one too, away from home against one of their competitive rivals.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan starts again for Manchester United as Mourinho has finally decided to acknowledge his existence. The Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld formidable partnership is back together for Spurs.
