It’s Premier league weekend again and there are some exciting ties. Manchester united vs Spurs is a notable one. United are back from their win over Newcastle mid-week in Capital one cup. While Spurs are from their convincing win over Stevenage.
United have won 6 straight games in every competition. AVB will look to win over fans, with at least a point from “Theater of dreams”. Scott Wooten who was good during mid-week, could be in the bench and Antonio Valencia, the new victim in United’s injury crisis and will be a doubt. Rooney started for the first time in 4 weeks, while Darren Fletcher started for the first time in 10 months.
Spurs would like to continue their good form in recent weeks. Spurs have been the victim of United’s impressive comebacks, like 5-2 win for united in 08-09 season.
The most important stat is that “SPURS HAVE FAILED TO BEAT UNITED IN LAST 22 PREMIER LEAGUE MATCHES”. But with young guns like Bale, Dembele and Siguaardson, they would like to get something for their under-pressure manager.
