Can United Regain Lost Momentum?
Old Trafford is the place as last season’s runner up Tottenham Hotspur come calling on Jose’s Red Army.
Manchester United have to quickly fix the crack that’s beginning to show in their armoury as we face big team at Old Trafford for the first time this season. On the other hand, it’s all beginning to work for Mauricio Pochettino. The so called Wembley hoodoo was broken last week against Liverpool. Now an in depth analysis of both the teams.
Despite losing just one game, Jose Mourinho has come under lots of criticism. That to me should not have happened. He’s guided us to plenty of success in the past 1 year. One loss where we didn’t have anywhere near our first team can’t be criticised the way we have.
Form Book may favour the other side. And that’s an advantage for United. As Jose thrives on these situations. And the home advantage. 36 games unbeaten. That’s almost one full PL season. Home and Away. Our OT form has been deadly. Especially this season in particular where we have attacked scored defended well.
Probable United XI: David De Gea; Chris Smalling; Eric Bailly; Phil Jones; Antonio Valencia; Ander Herrera; Nemanja Matic; Ashley Young; Henrikh Mkhitaryan; Marcus Rashford; Romelu Lukaku
PLAYER TO WATCH OUT FOR : ANDER HERRERA. Ander Herrera has not had the best of the starts to his season. But he will improve as the season goes. And he will be crucial to how United go today.
A slow start to the season. Bit Spurs have turned it on in the past month or so. They have talented youngsters all across the pitch. Mauricio Pochettino should be given credits for creating a squad like this. But the League Cup defeat in midweek again questions their ability to win a trophy. But with such a squad it should be coming soon. Will they test United?? Definitely. They are the team to test United. City another one. But Spurs are the most efficient squad in the league. They can really test us.
Probable Spurs XI: Lloris; Alderweireld; Vertonghen; Sanchez; Trippier; Dier; Winks; Aurier; Alli; Eriksen; Son.
