One of the big moments of this season’s Premier League was when Tottenham smashed six past Manchester United, but today the reds could have their revenge and United look value for a crucial three points in North London. That 6-1 thumping Spurs gave out in October was a huge moment, but six months on there’s no doubt about which team is in better shape and United’s away record only adds to their appeal – They’ve won 15 away games in all competitions this season, including at a Manchester City side that had won their past 24 games in a row.

United have won four of their last five games and look to be a much more solid unit than the one that Spurs cut through 6 months ago, with Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof creating a solid centre back partnership whilst they are well protected in midfield by Scott McTominay – himself quietly excellent in the midfield for United this season.
Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford appeared to be tiring a month ago as United laboured to three 0-0 draws, but they scored two crucial goals in their Europa League quarter final victory at Granada whilst Rashford scored the equaliser against Brighton. Paul Pogba was excellent in that game and gives United another attacking option
Harry Kane continues to scores goals for fun – he’s put away nine in his last eight starts – but he can’t fix all of Spurs problems and they looked worryingly open last week against Newcastle, who have won only two of their past 19 Premier League games, and their record against the Premier League’s best is dire – two win, two draws and seven losses – whilst United have avoided defeat in 10 of their 11 against top-eight rivals, recording six clean sheets against the Premier League’s best. Take the 6/4 about an away win.
