Tottenham Hotspur, demonstrating a strong away form in the Premier League with only two losses in ten away games, are set to face a Manchester United team struggling for consistency. United, having managed just three wins in their last ten competitive matches, are under pressure to perform.
United’s recent performance against Wigan might have been commendable, but it barely scratches the surface of the issues faced by a team currently sitting eighth in the Premier League. Their last five Premier League games have yielded a mere four points, and the upcoming challenge against Tottenham could prove to be a tough hurdle, especially with the absence of key player Son Heung-min.
Spurs Keeping Title Hopes Alive Tottenham, fresh from knocking Burnley out of the FA Cup, have secured five wins in their last six matches in all competitions, placing them just a point shy of the top four and keeping them in the hunt for the Premier League title.
Under Ange Postecoglou, Tottenham have had a slightly more challenging time on their travels, yet they have only suffered two defeats in ten league away matches, securing wins in half of these encounters.
A Close Contest Expected Given Manchester United’s inconsistent form, it seems reasonable to lean towards Tottenham, possibly even for an outright win. Spurs have demonstrated their scoring prowess on the road, hitting the back of the net at least twice in eight of their ten league away games. However, with only two clean sheets away from home, a 2-1 victory for Tottenham is a plausible prediction for this match.
