Man Utd vs Tottenham: Top free betting tips

Man Utd welcome Tottenham to Old Trafford on Sunday 14 January with the Red Devils needing a win to maintain any hopes of finishing inside the Premier League's top four. Can Postecogolou's men cut United adrift or can this match prove to be the springboard that United so badly need? Our Man Utd vs Tottenham prediction is for an entertaining match at Old Trafford with several goals being scored at both ends.

Match result prediction: Tottenham to win

Tottenham have shown they are more than capable of going to big away grounds and getting good results this season. They fought back from behind twice to earn a 3-3 draw at the Etihad Stadium last month and earlier in the season, they did the same at the Emirates Stadium to draw 2-2 with Arsenal. They come into this one in good form – winning five of their last six matches – and we are backing them to go one step further on Sunday to win the match.

Total goals prediction: Over 3.5 goals

Man Utd were involved in some truly drab affairs at the beginning of the season but they have looked better in an attacking sense recently. They have scored six goals in their last three games and while that isn't amazing, it is certainly upward trending. Spurs, meanwhile, have been excellent going forward all season and only three teams have scored more than them in the Premier League.

Correct score prediction: Man Utd 2-3 Tottenham

We suggest picking a high-scoring result in the correct score stakes for this one. A 3-2 win for Tottenham is priced at 18/1 which represents fantastic value when you consider Spurs have scored seven goals in their last three away games and Man Utd have conceded six in their last three home games.

Man Utd vs Tottenham team news

Man Utd predicted lineup vs Tottenham

Erik Ten Hag picked his strongest possible lineup against Wigan in the FA Cup on Monday night and we could see a similar eleven here. Ten Hag has confirmed that a number of his injured stars are back in training and there is an outside chance that Luke Shaw, Lisandro Martinez, Casemiro and Christian Eriksen all make the squad for this one. Regardless of who returns, teenager Kobbie Mainoo will be the first name on the team sheet after a string of impressive midfield displays.

Onana – Dalot, Varane, Evans, Shaw – Mainoo, Eriksen, Fernandes – Garnacho, Hojlund, Rashford

Tottenham predicted lineup vs Tottenham

Tottenham are another team that have suffered from significant injuries this season and while the likes of James Maddison and Ivan Perisic are still missing, they could welcome back Micky Van de Ven and Cristian Romero on Sunday. While that will fix their defensive dilemmas, Poctecoglou will be without Sarr and Bissouma in midfield with the pair away at AFCON while captain, Son Heung-Min, is also on international duty. New signing, Timo Werner, could come straight into the starting eleven.

Vicario – Porro, Van de Ven, Romero, Udogie – Hojbjerg, Bentancur – Johnson, Werner, Kulusevski – Richarlison
