Date and time: October 4, 4:30pm
Location: Old Trafford
Manchester United play host to Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday afternoon. Jose Mourinho will be looking to get a first win at Old Trafford since being sacked by his former club. This certainly has the makings of a really interesting game, and it could go either way.
Form suggests Spurs are the favourites here, having won three of their last four in the league. They were unlucky not to beat Newcastle too, after a late penalty caused controversy. But United have won six of the last four meetings. They have only failed to win once in seven at home against this opponent, too, when Mourinho was in charge of a 3-0 defeat in August 2018.
Our bet here is Manchester United to win with BTTS 11/4 @ Bet365.
Why are we backing Manchester United here?
Apart from the recent record they have against their opponents, we think they may have too much going forward against a Spurs defence which has hasn’t kept a clean sheet in the last six games.
But United have not kept a clean sheet in the last three games against Spurs. This is why we are looking at goals on both sides.
Which other markets are worth a look?
Well, with goals expected, the obvious thing to do is look at the scoring markets.
The two that stand out for us are Marcus Rashford and Harry Kane who are both priced to score anytime at 6/4 with Bet365.
Rashford has scored in his last three games against Spurs.
