A very exciting game ahead, 2 teams with very good attacking intent and not so great defensive lines go up against each other.
Man United are not the force of old anymore, struggling to enforce dominance in the transfer window which was the norm in years gone by. They will be hoping to kick on and make a successful season of it
Tottenham have looked somewhat impressive so far, after being rather unfortunate to concede a dubious penalty against Newcastle in added time which other than that was a very pleasing result for the team as a whole. They will be hoping Son can keep up his form and help Kane in the goals department.
Unleash the Son
Its clear to see that Son is a vital cog in the Tottenham team, he is playing a little deeper under mourinho due to his slightly defensive set up but he has flourished this season so far, putting in a very good performance in the first game of the season. If they can keep him involved in the game they will have a very big chance of a win here. A slight switch in wings would be suited today due to Man Uniteds slightly weaker full back playing on the left side allowing him to exploit that position.
Its fair to say the defensive and goalkeeper of United havent start the season well which heaps the pressure on the back 5 with many people claiming they arent good enough for the exception of Wan Bissaka. They will be hoping for a better showing today but that is no guarantee when Maguire struggles with any team who may try and play in behind the defence which is certainly a ploy that Tottenham will use today. The big question is when will Hendersons impressive cup performances push him into the starting 11 and if United continue to leak goals that will come very soon.
Its clear that Ole is trying a very large rebuild of his squad but is trying to integrate a few players at a time so not to effect the dressing room atmosphere but the board at United struggle getting the players on his wishlist and it is clear they are lacking a few players before coming good. Ole used Lindelof last week even though he said he was fatigued which just shows the faith he has in the other defenders in the squad. Pair that up with the never ending pursuit of a winger then you find yourself with 1 new addition who has started both league games on the bench.
- 81% chance of over 1.5 goals
- 59% chance of over 2.5 goals
-60% chance of btts
-63% chance of over 2.5 cards
-54% chance of over 8.5 corners
- H2h have 6 wins for United, 1 draw and 3 wins for Tottenham
In what is a very open game it would be silly to predict a winner in a game that will go either way, its all down to what defence has the better game here and thats all it is.
