Manchester United’s Premier League midweek action will see them travel to London to take on Tottenham Hotspur at the iconic Wembley Stadium.

Spurs had to dig deep before getting a draw at Newport County in the FA Cup on Saturday. A replay keeps them in the competition and increases their chances of winning the competition.

Onto league matters, they could only draw at Southampton which has left them a massive 20 points behind leaders Manchester City but eight points behind United.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men beat the Red Devils 2-1 at White Hart Lane last season and are a close (2.30) to win again with Bet9ja.

Jose Mourinho’s men were 4-0 victors at Yeovil Town on Friday which sees them maintain a 100% record in all competitions so far in 2018.

They beat Tottenham 1-0 in the reverse fixture at Old Trafford and are offered at odds of (3.30) to take maximum points from the British capital.

Both sides last played a draw back in 2014 at White Hart Lane which ended goalless. Another stalemate is offered at odds of (3.20) with the same betting firm.

Tottenham have won two of their last home games against Manchester United while the Red Devils are on a current eight game unbeaten league run which is the best of anyone in the top-flight at the moment. Either team winning is priced at (1.33).

Only on one occasion in their last seven league meetings have both teams scored which came last season. YES though is the favoured outcome with bookies at (1.70).

Four of the last five meetings have been settled by a one goal margin with United claiming three victories. Backing them to do that in London is at (5.05) while it’s (4.20) for the same outcome going Spurs’ way.

Only one of the last nine games between Tottenham and Man United has seen more than three goals. Every other fixture has seen less and Bet9ja quotes odds of (1.27) for another outcome.
