The central match of the tenth round of the EPL will be an encounter between Manchester United and Tottenham. Bookmakers in this couple are on Man Utd side, but the Spurs also should not be underestimated, Pochettino’s team plays great away in the current season, shows a very high level of football, while Manchester United have squad problems: a lot of injured.
After nine played rounds, Manchester United are situated on the second position in the peloton, the Devils have 20 points in the asset, the same as Tottenham, but the goal difference is slightly worse. Manchester City have five more. Mourinho’s team had a mid-week game within the English League Cup against Swansea at the opponents’ field, Man Utd were stronger, 2:0, although the game was played by almost second squad.
Tottenham lost their match of the English League Cup, whereas they lost not to anyone, but West Ham. Pochettino also used reserve squad in the game, considering, that the Spurs will have the most important match against Man Utd and after that, the clash against Real for the first place in the Champions League group, therefore there is nothing surprising about it. Tottenham have had four away matches within the current season of the EPL, in which they got four victories with the score of 12:2.
In the last two matches Manchester United looked tired, the future hosts clearly lack Pogba and Fellaini in midfield, while the Spurs do not have squad problems. A bet on Tottenham looks interesting in the couple, which play terrific away and even took points at Bernabeu recently.
Prediction for the match: Tottenham not to lose
