Tottenham vs Manchester United



It’s Mauricio Pochettino v Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in what could be described as a job interview for one or maybe both of them, if you’re into speculation.

Mauricio Pochettino has made three changes from the Tottenham side that beat Chelsea in the Carabao Cup in midweek.

Hugo Lloris replaces Paulo Gazzaniga in goal, while Jan Vertonghen starts in place of Davinson Sanchez at centre-back.

Ben Davies also comes in at left back in place of Danny Rose.

Gazzaniga, Sanchez and Rose all drop to the bench.

Manchester United have made two changes from the side that beat Newcastle 2-0 last time out in the Premier League.

Ashley Young and Jesse Lingard replace Antonio Valencia andJuan Mata.

Paul Pogba, who missed last weekend’s FA Cup win over Reading because of a knock to the back of his right leg, is fit to take his place in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s starting line-up.

Team News Confirmed:

Tottenham: Lloris, Trippier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Davies, Sissoko, Winks, Eriksen, Alli, Son, Kane.

Subs: Gazzaniga, Sanchez, Foyth, Rose, Skipp, Lamela, Llorente.

Manchester United: De Gea, Young, Jones, Lindelof, Shaw, Matic, Herrera, Lingard, Pogba, Martial, Rashford.

Tottenham are looking to win three consecutive top-flight meetings with Manchester United for the first time since September 1960.

Manchester United have lost their last three away Premier League matches against Spurs – they had lost just three of their first 23 against them in the competition between 1992 and 2014 (W12 D8).

Tottenham could become the first team since Everton in 1987 to win four consecutive home top-flight matches against Manchester United.

Manchester United have lost two of their last three matches at Wembley in all competitions (including this exact fixture last season), as many as they had in their last 15 at the ground (W8 D5 L2).
