Man United travel to Wembley this Sunday to take on Tottenham Hotspur and this will be the first big test for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

United are yet to lose a game ever since the Norwegian took charge but an away game vs Spurs will not be a cake walk.

While the Red Devils have a more or less fit squad but Spurs will miss the services of Eric Dier, Mousa Dembele and Victor Wanyama.

Lucas Moura is also recovering from an injury but the forward should make himself fit before the game.




Man United’s last loss came against Liverpool last month and picking up three points vs Spurs would mean that the Red Devils would take their unbeaten run to five games.

But former Man United player Michael Owen feels that Pochettino’s men will come out victorious once again.

“This is the acid test for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s new-look Manchester United and the Norwegian is looking to emulate the legendary (Sir) Matt Busby and win his first five league games,” Owen told BetVictor.




“Spurs won the reverse fixture 3-0 at Old Trafford earlier in the season, but this is a United side playing with pace and flair and not lacking in confidence




“United have lost their last three league games at Spurs and they could lose a fourth – but what I do expect is to see chances and goals at both ends in what promises to be a cracking game and a true barometer of where this new United are in relation to the other elite PL sides.

“Prediction: 3-2.”

Man United have the attacking lineup to cause damage to Spurs but what Solskjaer will really be worried about is his back four.




Players like Harry Kane and Dele Alli have the ability to carve open Man United’s defence at the drop of a hat.
