EPL: Man United vs Tottenham Hotspur| Lineup |Team News |Time | Prediction

The Premier League (PL) season has reached the quarter mark as big boys Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspurs meet for the first time in the season. The clash at Old Trafford could have huge consequences as Spurs could reach second place in the PL table with a positive result. 

Manchester United on the other hand would be looking to avoid back-to-back matches without a win at home this season.

  • This is Tottenham's best start to a PL season after 10 matches, having mustered 23 points
  • United on the flip side will be looking to move upward in the table after making a slow start to the season
  • Cristiano Ronaldo scored a hat-trick in this fixture last season while United did a league double over the Spurs

Manchester United vs Tottenham Hotspur Head to Head 

The two ever-presents of the PL will meet for the 61st time on Wednesday as Spurs try to open a 10-point gap over Manchester United with a win. But history has favored the Reds in this fixture with 38 wins in 60 matches. United have won more than 75 percent of their home matches against Spurs which accounts for 23 wins in 30 matches.

Spurs though will be aware of the recent records as well, having won four matches at Old Trafford since 2012. Their last win at Old Trafford was a 6-1 thumping of the Reds as Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham won in September 2020.

Manchester United vs Tottenham Hotspur 2022-23 Season so far

The PL season started on a slow note for Manchester United as they lost their opening two matches of the season. But since then Ten Hag’s side has been beaten only once in the PL and that came against arch-rivals Manchester City when they were thumped 6-3. From nine matches so far, United have collected five wins and a draw which accounts for 16 points.

Spurs on the horizon are enjoying their best start to a PL season after 10 matches and are currently third with 23 points. Under Antonio Conte, the Londoners have achieved a phase of consistency and have ground-out results despite not playing at their best. While shouts for title challenge are still mute, Spurs could still emerge as the nearest compotator to the top two sides and could be amongst the mix.
