As mentioned above, this is a game which has been overshadowed by Saturday's report in the Athletic that Harry Kane will look to leave Tottenham this summer. One of his suitors is likely to be Manchester Untied with the England striker feeling very much like a 'United player'.
Will that move happen? Who knows, but one thing we can be sure of is that Jose Mourinho won't let this game be overshadowed by another man for long. Mourinho will be itching to prove his former team wrong and will set out his team to ensure they stop United.
United's threats are well known, they're direct and quick, and Mourinho will try to set up the team to not allow them the space on the counter that they thrive on. Ultimately that is going to lead to a dull game, something we see reguarly when the bigger sides play each other.
We can't forget that when they met in the reverse fixture in October, Spurs won 6-1. That won't happen again and felt like an anomaly, even at the time, so let's not let it cloud our judgement headed into the game.
One thing we know is that United are strong at the back. As much as Harry Maguire has become a meme, the reality is that he's actually become quite underrated now. This team will be tough to break down and are in great form with regards to keeping clean sheets. I think United's attack is too quick and too potent for Spurs and will secure the 3 points.
Let's back the United win at over even money, and follow that up with a small wager on a 1-0 victory for Man United, in a game which could be a lot closer and low scorer than their last meeting.
