Jose Mourinho Tottenham take on Chelsea
Jose Mourinho

Jose Mourinho takes his Tottenham Hotspur side to Old Trafford on Wednesday and right now, it’s the Lilywhites who have edge over their Premier League rivals.

Spurs have seen a revival of sorts ever since Jose took charge of the club and on the other hand, Man United have been really struggling to pick up wins.

Despite the poor form, some people feel its Man United and not Tottenham who will have the upper hand in this match but Charlie Nicholas does not think so.

Writing for Sky Sports, Nicholas has claimed that the back-to-back wins for Tottenham under their new manager seem to have brought back the confidence which clubbed with Man United’s poor form is surely an advantage for the North London side.

Nicholas wrote: “Soccer Special is going to be an excellent show on Wednesday with six games on for all six of us to watch over.

“We are all looking forward to it and Wednesday. This is the reason why because this is a stunning game. We have Jose Mourinho’s return to Manchester United to look forward to.

“Will Jose get stick? They didn’t dislike him at Old Trafford. They may not have liked his style and knew deep down that the players went about his ideas the wrong way, mainly Paul Pogba.

“He had problems with Luke Shaw but Jose has always been honest and upfront. He did win trophies and got them a Champions League spot so he will not get bombarded.

“I might be wrong but we have a Tottenham team that are three weeks ago would have gone with their heads down – a draw will have delighted them and left them relatively pleased, but Man Utd are there for the taking if Tottenham want it.

“It is strange how things come up. Tottenham are the favourites at Old Trafford. They do not get results against the big teams, but United nowhere near at the moment.

“I think United will be upbeat for this one as if they have a point to prove, so it will be interesting. Jose will fancy the job though.”
