Spurs vs Man Utd – First defeat beckons for Red Devils

| 16.01.2011

Tottenham may have a horrid record against Manchester United in recent seasons but they are 9/5 in the Premier League betting to take the three points this season and condemn Sir Alex Ferguson’s team to a first league defeat of the campaign.

Match Odds

Spurs have failed to win any of their last 19 top-flight fixtures with Manchester United and even worse is that they have lost on 15 of these occasions.

However, they have only lost one of their last ten matches against the so-called ‘Big Four’ at home and have also been in decent form at White Hart Lane this season, losing just a single Premier League game.

Manchester United may still be unbeaten in their 20 league games, which has helped them sit on top of the standings, but wins have not been frequent on their travels.

They have won just two of their ten away games, which is form that may need to be improved if they want to remain at the head of the standings in May.

Manchester United’s betting odds are 6/4 to beat Spurs, with the draw priced at 9/4.

To Score At Any Time

Keeping Rafael Van der Vaart quiet could be the key if Manchester United want to take anything away from White Hart Lane.

Despite only arriving at the end of the last transfer window, the Dutchman has nine league goals and is 7/4 to strike at any time against the Red Devils.

For Manchester United, the dilemma is who to choose in attack, particularly with Wayne Rooney back available.

Rooney and top-scorer Dimitar Berbatov are 6/4 to score inside the 90 minutes, while Nani, who struck a controversial goal when the pair clashed at Old Trafford earlier this season, is 9/4 in this Premier League betting market.

A £25 bet on the scorecast of Spurs beating Manchester United 2-1 and Gareth Bale scoring first could see a return of £1650. New customers can sign up here for a free £25 bet.
