Tottenham host Manchester United in the biggest game of the weekend, and Spurs will not have it easy given United’s recent form.
The Red Devils have won all five matches under interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after he replaced Jose Mourinho.
Spurs have been doing great this season and sit just six points behind leaders Liverpool ahead of the upcoming round of fixtures.
However, Mark Lawrenson believes Mauricio Pochettino’s side will have enough to see off the Red Devils.
While speaking to BBC Sport (h/t Express), the former Liverpool defender spoke about us defeating United at home in the last three seasons and claimed this is a big test for Solskjaer.
“It just feels like Tottenham know they can turn United over. They beat them at Old Trafford in August, so I am backing them to do a rare double – for the first time since 1989-90.
“This is a big test for United caretaker manager Solskjaer and it will be interesting to see whether he will be as attack-minded at Wembley as in his first five games.”
The pundit believed United would not have as much possession as the previous games and would need to change their approach.
Spurs easily defeated United in the previous meeting this season, and we are in great touch coming into this tie.
United should be a better attacking unit after their comfortable victories in recent weeks, but playing Spurs at Wembley is a major test for Solskjaer.
