Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester United 04/11/2021
Winners of four of their last five Premier League matches, Tottenham Hotspur (14-6-9, 48 points) are now in sixth place, one point behind fifth-running West Ham United and three behind Chelsea, who occupy fourth. During that stretch, Gareth Bale and Harry Kane provided most of the scoring with four goals each. Together with South Korean footballer Son Heung-min, the trio forms a formidable offensive arsenal that could create mismatches on the pitch and provide nightmares for opposing defenses. In their last game against Aston Villa, Kane and Carlos Vinicius scored for Tottenham while Hugo Lloris registered his 10th clean sheet.
Players to Watch: Harry Kane (17 goals, 13 assists); Son Heung-min (13 goals, 10 assists); Gareth Bale (5 goals, 2 assists); Lucas Moura (3 goals, 3 assists); Hugo Lloris (43 saves, 10 clean sheets).
Clinging on to second place just a point ahead of third-running Leicester City, Manchester United seeks to string up enough victories to keep their current placing and gain a UEFA Champions League berth. However, in their FA Cup game against the Foxes, the Red Devils were very inconsistent. They wasted four of five opportunities on goal and had more possession time. Worse, they were not able to convert seven corner kick opportunities that could have become goals for their side. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his men hope their offensive might will be back in time for this all-important showdown against the Spurs. Bruno Fernandes is expected to lead Manchester United’s offensive thrust along with Marcus Rashford. David de Gea is expected to man the pipes again for the Red Devils, with Dean Henderson waiting as their second option as a goalkeeper.
