Manchester United will be without Phil Jones and Axel Tuanzebe against Tottenham

Tottenham Hotspur’s Premier League campaign resumes this Friday with a crunch clash against Manchester United. The two teams are battling for a top four finish and the upcoming game will virtually be a six-pointer in the race for the Champions League qualification.

Ahead of the big game on Friday at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has provided an update on his squad.

“Axel will probably be missing and Phil Jones will be missing. Apart from that I would say everyone else is available for selection.”

Neither are expected to be a big miss for the Red Devils, given that they haven’t been involved much in the season so far. Solskjaer also confirmed that star players Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba are ready for a return. (h/t ManUtd.com)

The duo are in a similar boat like our stars Harry Kane and Moussa Sissoko, having not featured for over six months due to injuries. However, they are in line to make an appearance against us come Friday. (h/t MEN)

“If selected, of course, Marcus and Paul have been out for a long, long period, but they’re available. How long they’re going to play for, let’s see.”

Tottenham are currently eighth in the Premier League table, seven points behind Chelsea in the fourth place. A win on Friday would be the perfect way to kick things off and build steam ahead of a crucial final run-in.

Qualifying for the Champions League is imperative if we want to attract the best of the players in the transfer window. Moreover, with finances affected, qualifying for Europe’s top competition will help ease some burden.
