Manchester United's poor display against Brighton has left a bitter taste amongst their fans only two games into the season. Meanwhile, Tottenham, despite a few scares during their games against Newcastle United and Fulham
If fit, Manchester United will be looking for more from Alexis Sanchez. The Chilean made some eye-catching passes to link up with Romelu Lukaku in United’s first home game at Old Trafford, but Jose Mourinho will want more goals and more chances created from last season’s marquee signing. The former Arsenal man has created 47 big chances with
Some of the statistics from United’s loss to Brighton were not impressive and highlight the need for more intensity and desire in their performances which Sanchez does bring. Jose Mourinho’s side covered only 99.5 kilometres, to the 108.5 kilometres ran by their opponents.
From two matches, United are averaging 8.5 shots per game—which would have been the poorest amount in the league last season. Despite a small sample size, the underlying stats don’t paint a great picture at Old Trafford when you compare that to scoring with a greater percentage of their shots on target (39%) than every side other than Manchester City last term.
Looking at Tottenham, Fulham looked good in spells against Mauricio Pochettino’s side, forcing Hugo Lloris to produce some crucial saves at key moments. Harry Kane is up and running as the England captain finally broke his August goal drought and they will come into the clash at Old Trafford confident of getting a result.
It was a tough game for Spurs, but they merited their victory
Manchester United vs. Tottenham: Where is the value?
Jose Mourinho has cut an irritated and unsatisfied figure during the last few months as Manchester United manager and his next assignment won’t be much easier dealing with a strong looking Tottenham side.
The Portuguese manager’s slow approach to games seems to somewhat hinder United’s playing style and The Red Devils are crying out for two out-and-out wingers to complement Romelu Lukaku. They lack real creativity within the team and there is little fluidity in their attacking style.
For Tottenham, their tactics and style of play will likely remain the same looking to take the game to United. Pochettino is a big fan of his fullbacks and the Argentine manager will look to press forward to keep Mourinho’s wide players playing as defensive as possible.
Spurs are available at 1.543* on the 0 Handicap and the way Pochettino will set up his side for the trip to Old Trafford this could offer real value.
