Tottenham face a tough test on Sunday as we play Manchester United at Wembley. Had this game taken place a month or two ago, Spurs would have started as favourites given Jose Mourinho’s problems at the Red Devils.
However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has turned things around at Old Trafford by winning every game during his tenure, and the away side seem to have a bit more about themselves than before.
Spurs will be riding high after the 1-0 win over Chelsea in the Carabao Cup, and there was no respite for the players as they trained hard ahead of the tie against United.
There was some good news with Eric Dier being pictured on the training ground. The Englishman missed a month of football after undergoing appendix surgery.
Dier might not make it to the team against United but we could see Jan Vertonghen make a start. The Belgian is another player dealing with injury problems this season, and we could do with the centre-back at Wembley.
Should Vertonghen not be fit, Davinson Sanchez should start in place of the Belgian. It will also be interesting to see who starts as the left-back as Ben Davies could be preferred to Danny Rose.
Two players that have been incredible for Spurs are Son Heung-min and Moussa Sissoko. The pair should start for us on Sunday, and this could be Son’s final game before he joins the South Korean side in the Asian Cup.
Hugo Lloris should also make a start replacing Paulo Gazzaniga, and the captain has to have a quality game to keep United from scoring.
Our goal scoring threat will also come from Harry Kane and Dele Alli. The pair need to be at their best, and the game will be a treat for most football fans.
Spurs have the chance to throw a spanner into United’s hopes of making it into the top-four. And we have the quality to easily defeat the Red Devils if we play to our potential.
