The English Premier League will reconvene this weekend after the FA Cup break. The blockbuster clash will feature Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United at Wembley. Tottenham (third, 48 points) have a chance to go second with a win, but United (sixth, 38 points) have picked up form. Under caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solksjaer, United have won five league matches in a row. However, Tottenham are a tough side to beat this season.
Tottenham Hotspur Preview
Spurs are the only side to have not drawn a Premier League match this season and have won six of their last seven. The hosts have the joint-third best attack (46 scored) this season and the fourth-best defensive record (21 conceded).
Even at home, Tottenham have won four of their last five home matches. They are aiming to become the first team since Everton in 1987 to win four consecutive top-flight matches against United.
Tottenham have scored in eight of their nine Premier League home matches. With 14 goals, superstar forward Harry Kane is leading the scoring charts for the hosts.
Manchester United Preview
United remain six points behind top-four, but after the dismissal of Jose Mourinho things have improved. The Red Devils have won five matches under Solskjaer. However, they are yet to face a tough test and this match will be an indicator of their progress.
Leaky defence has been United’s problem this season, as they have already conceded 32 goals. Only six sides have conceded more, while the Red Devils have the joint-least number of clean sheets this season.
Marcus Rashford has six goals and six assists this season, while scoring in his last two league matches. However, United have won just four of their last 17 matches in the capital which remains a worry.
Fantasy Players to Watch
Marcus Rashford has improved over the last two matches. He is in line to score for three consecutive Premier League games for the first time in his career. The forward could be an important addition to your fantasy side.
Harry Kane is the joint-highest top-scorer in the Premier League this season. He can become the third player to score home and away against United in the same campaign.
Paul Pogba has improved recently and has four goals with three assists in his last four Premier League matches. He will be tested by the Spurs, and his performance could be crucial in determining the winner.
