Tottenham v Man Utd betting tips: Red Devils out for redemption
Preview and odds for Saturday’s Premier League clash
An intriguing Premier League encounter is in prospect as two under-performing sides meet so we have examined the odds to find some Tottenham v Man Utd betting tips.
Spurs lost their fourth London derby of the season last weekend but did progress in the League Cup in midweek while Manchester United suffered an embarrassing home hammering by Liverpool.
Saturday’s match, which takes place at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, kicks off at 5.30pm and is live on BT Sport.
Tottenham v Man Utd match odds
Spurs rested their top players for their Europa Conference League clash at Vitesse Arnhem last Thursday in preparation for their clash with West Ham at the London Stadium on Sunday.
That plan backfired as they lost both games 1-0 and the latter defeat signalled their fourth consecutive London derby reverse this season.
But they gave themselves a boost by advancing to the quarter-finals of the League Cup by beating Burnley 1-0 at Turf Moor on Wednesday night.
While five Premier League wins means they remain in sixth spot, seven points behind leaders Chelsea, Tottenham have also lost four times – to Crystal Palace, Chelsea, Arsenal and West Ham, conceding 10 goals and registering just once in those capital contests.
There has been a positive outcome in every gave involving Spurs this season and it is 12/5 they will register their first draw of the campaign in the Tottenham v Man Utd betting tips.
They are 15/8 to beat a Manchester United side who were embarrassed last Sunday, torn to shreds by Liverpool in a 5-0 humiliation at Old Trafford, but have had a few extra days to digest that result.
United’s record 29-game away unbeaten run in the Premier League ended in their last match on the road against Leicester.
The Red Devils, who are 27/20 to beat Tottenham, will hope to avoid a third defeat in four (D1), which is as many as in their previous 37 league games (W23 D11).
They have not lost three Premier League games in succession since December 2015 and are 2/5 to avoid defeat.
Tottenham v Man Utd head-to-head
Just one of the last six Premier League matches between Tottenham and Manchester United have been won by the home side, with the Red Devils prevailing 2-1 at Old Trafford in December 2019.
After a six-game winless run away to Spurs in the Premier League (D3 L3), United have won on two of their last three visits to Spurs.
Both sides scored in each of the last four meetings and it is 8/15 this will be the case again on Saturday in the Tottenham v Man Utd betting tips.
Tottenham v Man Utd key battles
Spurs may face a backlash and Cristiano Ronaldo, in particular, could cause a few problems.
After netting three goals in his first two Premier League appearances this season, the striker hasn’t scored in any of his last four top-flight matches.
He hasn’t gone five in a row without a goal since a run of nine for the Red Devils between November 2008 and January 2009 and is 13/10 to score at any time.
Likewise, Spurs marksman Harry Kane has netted just once in the league this season following his denied move to Manchester City.
He can’t be kept quiet for long and is 11/8 to score at any time.
