Manchester United – Tottenham – the second day of the weekend on the program and the remaining four matches on the 15th round of the English Premier League, and certainly the most attention attracted to this to be played at Old Trafford between Manchester United’s sixth and fifth Tottenham, who currently has six large point advantage. Otherwise, both teams during the last week qualified for the knockout stage of the Europa League, while another should be added that last year both their primary skirmish victory over host. Start: 11.12.2016. – 14:15 CET
And since it was the second consecutive home win United over the Spurs, certainly not in their camp and now aspire to a similar scenario, especially since it is thus the difference between these two teams again reduced to just three points. Otherwise, for this current difference of six points are the most guilty of four consecutive draws “red devils” at home, while in the last round away to Everton also played a 1: 1, and that after the tying goal just received in 89 minutes of penalties.
Naturally, this too many draws very frustrating United footballers, especially coach Mourinho, which is why he creates this season twice and punished by the English Alliance for inappropriate behavior. Otherwise, the most successful English team has in the past managed to carve out a place in the semi-final League Cup and in the sixteenth finals of the European league, so you can now fully devote championship, where you have a big scoring gap to the leading teams. Suppose even that for this game, with the Spurs do not apply only injured defenders Smalling and Shaw, while the recovered Bailly probably should be starting 11th
Probable lineups Manchester United: De Gea – Valencia, Jones, Bailly, Darmian – Carrick, Herrera – Mkhitaryan, Pogba, Martial – Ibrahimovic
As for the guests from London, we have already said in the introduction that they were in the past week appearance in the knockout stage of the Europa League, and after the decisive encounter with CSKA Moscow celebrated at home with 3: 1, which are in fact held third place in their Champions League group. Otherwise, the Spurs have earlier lost all chances to qualify for the next round of the Champions League, because they are in front of them at the table finished Monaco and Leverkusen, who were previously and mastered at White Hart Lane, while the two rounds in the championship suffered his first defeat season, when at Stamford Bridge defeated by 2: 1 of city rivals and currently leading a team of the Premier league, Chelsea.
But, coach Pochettino are already in the following priority performance at home with even 5: 0 thrashing things Swanseaja, so you now have just three points behind Liverpool, third and fourth Manchester City, while their leader Chelsea now flee seven points. When it comes to the state of the roster, slowly recovering defenders Alderweireld and Davies, but they will be against United is likely to remain on the bench, while definitely out injured midfielder Lamela and striker Janssen.
Probable lineups Spurs: Lloris – Walker, Dier, Vertonghen, Rose – Wanyama, Dembele – Eriksen, Alli, Son – Kane
