Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester United: Predictions, odds & betting tips
class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>With both teams leaking goals at the back, Al Hain-Cole expects another high-scoring encounter between Spurs and Solskjaer's men on Saturday
Manchester United will be desperate for a reaction when they travel to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for Saturday’s Premier League clash.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under major pressure after last weekend’s painful 5-0 humiliation at home to arch rivals Liverpool, his side’s third defeat in four league fixtures.
Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester United latest odds
Having run out 3-1 winners at this ground last season, the guests are on offer 11/8 (2.38) with bet365 to give themselves a much-needed morale boost by coming out on top once again.
Spurs are also struggling for consistency after losing four of their last six games in the league but can be backed at 9/5 (2.80) to get back on track by pulling off a big win here.
Just one of the last 14 meetings between this duo has resulted in a draw, but there are odds of 13/5 (3.50) available on them cancelling each other out in this one.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester United goalscorer
Harry Kane is the 7/2 (4.50) favourite to open the scoring despite hitting the net just once in eight league games this season, with Son Heung-Min looking a more attractive option at 7/1 (8.0) considering he has four goals to his name.
Cristian Ronaldo has gone four league games without a goal but is his side’s 15/4 (4.75) front runner to break the deadlock here, with Marcus Rashford a 7/1 (8.0) shot after striking in two of his last three appearances.
Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester United preview
Thoroughly outplayed as they lost 4-2 at Leicester the week before, the Red Devils were shambolic in their record-breaking defeat against Liverpool – making so many defensive errors that the 5-0 scoreline actually let them off fairly easily.
Defensive fragility has actually been a story of the season so far, with United having kept just one clean sheet in 13 matches in all competitions so far and conceding 11 goals in their last three games alone.
This is a worrying backdrop for a game against a team that ran out 6-1 winners in a memorable league meeting last season, although Nuno Espirito Santo’s team are looking shaky at the back themselves after just one clean sheet in 11 games.
Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester United predictions
With both sides looking better in attack than defence, odds of 20/21 (1.95) are well worth backing on both teams getting on target and over 2.5 goals being scored for their fourth encounter in five.
