Manchester United have been mundane and suffered a 4-1 collapse against Manchester City in a recently concluded Manchester derby. As a result, the hopes of finishing in top four are becoming grim for the Red Devils, and they face another tough task on Saturday evening. 

The uncertainties are on the rise in the dressing room, and the club looks vulnerable at this point. Players have been criticized left to right by pundits due to their limited efforts in the games. 

Tottenham remains in the same situation as well. They have won just three games in the last six outings with their subdued performance while losing the other three. As the top four pressure mounting on the Spurs, they remain in seventh place, three points adrift top four.   

Antonio Conte is in a serious dilemma and faces another challenging task, last time they faced Manchester United the game ended in an embarrassing defeat for Spurs, although Conte was not in charge of the Spurs, but this time he will want his side to make the most out of Manchester United’s current form and go top four.

Manchester United have failed to form a tandem with each other and look hopeless after conceding a goal, on the other hand, they have a fragile defense that fails to perform under pressure and makes the silliest of mistakes.
