Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester United Betting Preview: Premier League Century for Kane

Alexis Sanchez will take to the field for the Red Devils in the league for the first time, but we're backing a familiar face to strike at Wembley

Tottenham Hotspur host Manchester United in the Premier League on Wednesday night in what could be a defining moment for both sides.

The Lilywhites sit fifth in the table but have won seven of their last 11 games at Wembley, whilst Jose Mourinho’s men have not lost away from Old Trafford in the league since the beginning of November.

Match Odds

Spurs are quoted at 13/10 (2.30) by 888Sport with the Red Devils at 47/20 (3.35), and the draw is available at 9/4 (3.25).

Sanchez on the scoresheet

Alexis Sanchez Manchester United

In the last six seasons, at least one of the meetings between these two sides has featured over 2.5 goals – a market that can be backed at 11/10 (2.10) – which bodes well for this clash as the reverse ended 1-0 to Mourinho’s men.

Alexis Sanchez is in line to make his Premier League debut for the Red Devils and is 49/20 (3.45) to breach the Spurs defence – as he did for Arsenal in November.

Romelu Lukaku has just one goal in nine games against Tottenham and is 9/4 (3.25) favourite to net in 90 minutes, with Anthony Martial available at 11/4 (3.75).

Ton up for Kane

Top scorer Harry Kane will be desperate to add to his solitary strike versus Man United and net his 100th top flight goal in the process – the England striker can be backed at 29/10 (3.90) to do that by netting first.

Son Heung-min is a tempting 23/4 (6.75) to open the scoring, and Dele Alli is priced at 13/2 (7.50) in the same market.

Both teams to score?

Despite the expected flurry of goals, it may also be worth backing at least one team to keep a clean sheet.

Both teams have scored in just one of the last seven meetings between these sides and the price of 19/20 (1.95) on ‘both teams to score – no’ appeals.

Tips and predictions

After netting his 30th goal of the season in all competitions in Spurs’ 1-1 FA Cup draw at Newport County on Saturday, Kane’s price of 21/20 (2.05) to net in his fifth consecutive match could prove to be fruitful for punters on Wednesday evening.
