Manchester United remain the only team in the Premier League still yet to taste defeat this season and Tottenham’s dismal record against them suggests that this is to remain the case after the next round of fixtures.
Spurs have failed to beat Manchester United in their last 25 meetings in all competitions and in general have a poor away record against the so called Premier League ‘big four’.
They have not won away at Old Trafford since 1989 and have failed to win on the road to one of the big four in the last 66 attempts.
Manchester United are 8/13 to beat Spurs, but will need to get out of the blocks quickly if they are to boost their chances of taking the three points.
Spurs have only conceded one second-half goal in the Premier League this season and if they can keep things tight in the opening 45 minutes then they could emerge victorious at 9/2.
Tottenham’s seeming inability to keep a clean sheet will leave Manchester United optimistic that there are goals to be had at Old Trafford.
Spurs have not shut out the opposition in the Premier League since the goalless draw with Manchester City on the opening day of the season.
Dimitar Berbabov will be keen to silence the supporters of his former club and is 4/1 to open the scoring.
Meanwhile, Javier Hernandez is also 4/1 to break the deadlock and continue his fine scoring form that has seen him convert four chances in his last six games.
Tottenham have been heavily reliant on recent signing Rafael van der Vaart for their goals of late and he is 9/1 to be the game’s first goalscorer.
Two or more goals have been scored in five of the last six meetings between Manchester United and Spurs, while three of the last four have featured four goals or more. See the complete Manchester United vs Spurs match betting odds market.
