Tottenham vs Manchester United prediction: How will Premier League fixture play out today?

Manchester United travel to London for their Premier League clash against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

A late Joe Willock goal ensured that Spurs were left frustrated as they returned from the international break with a 2-2 draw against Newcastle.

The Red Devils have certainly enjoyed the return to club football a little more than their opponents, defeating both Brighton and Granada.

The win over Granada in the Europa League was particularly important as United now own a two-goal lead over the Spanish side ahead of their trip to Old Trafford.

In one of the key battles in this game, England teammates Harry Maguire and Kane will be up against each other, with the United defender eager to build on momentum from the Brighton win: “It’s a great game to be involved in. Really pleased that we’re going into it on the back of three points against Brighton (last weekend). Take that little bit of momentum into the game.

“It’s always a tough game after the international break and I always feel like the points are the big thing – you don’t really look at the performance. Spurs is going to be a big one. It’s one that we’re looking forward to. We had a bad result against them at Old Trafford this season, so we’ll be looking to get one back.”
