Leicester City are now seven points clear at the top of the Premier League table. Despite dropping two points at the weekend, Tottenham are still in the title race but another draw or loss would realistically end their title challenge.
Manchester United will visit Maurico Pochettino’s team on Sunday. The 20-time English champions beat Everton 1 – 0 at the weekend courtesy of Anthony Martial’s 54th minute strike. The fifth-placed United are keeping pace with the other contenders for the Champions League spot. They are just a point behind fourth-placed Manchester City and both these arch rivals might fight for the fourth position until the last game of the season.
Tottenham drew 1 – 1 against Liverpool at Anfield. The Merseyside giants took the lead through Coutinho in the 51st minute but Premier League top goalscorer Harry Kane came to the aid of his side and netted the equalizer in the 63rd minute.
The North Londoners will once again look towards Kane for inspiration as they come face to face with Van Gaal’s United. Manchester United played host to Spurs on the opening day of the season. The Red Devils won 1 – 0 at Old Trafford courtesy of an own goal by Kyle Walker. However, this time around the London club are the favourites to win the upcoming clash.
Manchester United are nine points behind Tottenham with a game-in-hand. It is highly unlikely for them to catch the London club but with a win they can certainly make things difficult for the second-placed team.
With four wins and two losses from their last six league games, Manchester United have a slightly better league form than their opponents on the weekend. Pochettino’s Spurs have won three and drawn two and lost one of their last six Premier League fixtures.
The 2015/2016 Premier League season is among the most unpredictable ones ever. The competition is getting more intense and exciting with each passing week.
This is sure to be a great game and its hard to call the winner, but I think Manchester United are excellent value at odds of 4.2, so its worth a punt on them upsetting the tital chasers.
