Both Mourinho and Pochettino rarely deviate away from their own respective tactics. So we’ll likely see Spurs try and dominate the ball, and then press intensely when they lose it.
United have tended to play on the counter under Mourinho in big games. And, at least against Tottenham at Old Trafford, it’s worked.
Remarkably, the former Premier League champions have yet to concede to a Pochettino side on home soil. However, the Red Devils have conceded four times in two games and could be more vulnerable than usual.
Harry Kane finally broke his infamous August goal duck in the win over Fulham last weekend. And it’s hard to look past the England striker notching here knowing he’s likely to be buzzing.
