The Red Devils have looked solid at the back this term but will be put to the test when Spurs coming visiting

Manchester United will play host to Tottenham Hotspur as they battle it out at lunchtime in the Premier League on Saturday.

The Red Devils suffered their first defeat of the campaign at Huddersfield Town last weekend which left them trailing current league leaders Manchester City by five points. United triumphed 2-0 over Swansea City in the EFL Cup fourth round and are slight favourites with Bet365 for this crunch tie at (2.15).

The Lilywhites recorded an impressive 4-1 win over a lacklustre Liverpool at Wembley last Sunday but couldn’t get past West Ham United in midweek. That however shouldn’t stop them for getting back to their best and are (3.80) for another massive result here.

A draw at the end of 90 minutes is priced at (3.40) with the same firm.

Spurs have lost 20 of their last 25 Premier League away visits to Old Trafford which is the biggest tally of defeats on the road by any club in the competition. Their opponents are thus gifted the chance to avoid defeat (1.28).

Mauricio Pochettino’s men however triumphed in their last lat meeting with United back in May and are (1.72) to leave the red half of Manchester without losing.

Jose Mourinho’s team have kept clean sheets in their last five Premier League games at home, winning all of them. Considering the strength of their opponents, the men in red are (1.44) to concede.

Marcus Rashford got the consolation goal in United’s defeat to the Terriers last week. The youngster turns 20 on October 31 and is (3.10) to score his last goal as a teenager anytime.

With top frontman Harry Kane out with a hamstring injury, Fernando Llorente could be given the nod to make his first start of the campaign. The Spaniard – who joined in the summer from Swansea City, is tipped by Bet365 to score anytime at (3.00).
