Reinvigorated under Solskjaer, Al Hain-Cole is backing the Red Devils to share the scoresheet with Pochettino's men in a high-scoring clash at Wembley

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer faces the biggest test to his management credentials yet when Manchester United travel to Wembley to take on Tottenham on Sunday.

The interim boss has overseen five wins from five since replacing Jose Mourinho, although none of those games have been against teams from the current Premier League top 10.

Latest odds

Having lost each of the last three away matches against this opposition, his side are 13/5 (3.60) outsiders with William Hill to maintain their winning streak here.

Spurs ran out comfortable 3-0 winners in August's reverse encounter at Old Trafford, and are 21/20 (2.05) favourites to complete the double with another victory.

None of the last nine meetings between this pair have resulted in draws, but there are odds of 5/2 (3.50) available on this one finishing up all square.

Team news

Jan Vertonghen and Eric Dier are both in contention after returning to training following a thigh injury and appendix operation respectively.

Eric Bailly is suspended and Marcos Rojo ruled out through injury, while Chris Smalling, Alexis Sanchez and Paul Pogba will all face late fitness tests.

Entertaining clash

While it is still hard to judge the Red Devils despite their winning streak given the quality of the opposition, there is no doubt they are enjoying greater attacking freedom under the new regime.

Having scored 16 goals in five matches under Solskjaer, they will certainly back themselves to trouble a defence that conceded three times against Wolves in the previous home game.

However, they will not be so confident of keeping things tight in their own backline against Mauricio Pochettino's team, who have hit the net 23 times in just the last six fixtures.

Predictions

All in all, odds of 17/20 (1.85) look like solid value on both teams getting on target in United's 14th league match in 16 that features over 2.5 goals, as well as Tottenham's eighth in 10.

Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals a 17/20 (1.85) for a 2pt stake with William Hill
