Manchester United v Tottenham: central match of the tour
In the central match of the fourth round of the Premier League on Sunday 4 October, Manchester United host Tottenham – we assessed the opponents’ chances of success and prepared a forecast.
“Manchester United” is not the best way started the performance in the current season. Already in the opening round of the championship, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team failed in a home match against Crystal Palace, losing to the Glaziers with a score of 1: 3. The Red Devils were also close to losing points in the away match against Brighton, but saved the match at 90 + 10 minutes, having converted a penalty – 3: 2.
According to the results of these matches, “Manecster United” occupies only 14th place in the championship standings, but played one less match.
The Mancunians played more convincingly in the English League Cup, where they beat Luton with the same score 3: 0, and then the same Brighton, reaching the quarterfinals of the tournament.
It must be said that the defeat against Crystal Palace in the first round of the Premier League was the first for the Red Devils in their last 16 matches in the Premier League, and also interrupted a series of seven matches without defeat in the home arena.
In the upcoming meeting, Solskjaer will not be able to count on Axel Tuanzebe, Phil Jones and Sergio Romero.
As for the Spurs, they now have a good unbeaten run this season, which already has seven official matches in a row. True, the level of the opponents was weak during this period, with the exception of Chelsea, which managed to get through in the League Cup only in a penalty shootout (the main time ended 1: 1). Also in this tournament, the London club passed “Leighton”, which due to failure to appear at the match was credited with a technical defeat.
In the Europa League qualification , Tottenham confidently beat Lokomotiv Plovdiv (2: 1), Skendia (3: 1) and Maccabi Haifa (7: 2).
In the championship, Jose Mourinho’s charges proved to be an unstable team. They lost to Everton 0-1 at home, ended a draw with Newcastle on the road (1-1), and also defeated Southampton (5-2) away.
Following the results of three rounds, Tottenham are in eighth position, having four points in their assets.
In general, under the leadership of Mourinho, Spurs do not play in the best way on the fields of their opponents. In 11 previous away matches in the Premier League, they managed to win only three times.
Gareth Bale and Carlos Vinicius Morais will definitely not be able to play in this match. Doubtful Song Heung Min and Giovanni Lo Celso.

In the upcoming match, we propose to bet on the victory of Manchester United . Despite the somewhat hesitant play at the start of the season, the Mancunians look better at home than Tottenham away. Yes, the Spurs won at a party against the strong Wolverhampton, but this is rather an exception to the rule. Mourinho’s defensive tactics now do not often bring the desired result in confrontations with top rivals.
Our prediction is a win for Manchester United for 2.00 in BC Winline
