Tottenham v Man Utd Odds: Back Robin Van Persie to score first

Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United clash at White Hart Lane on Sunday in what promises to be an absolute corker. Premier League leaders United will be gunning to extend their lead at the summit, while Spurs will be looking for the win that could propel them up to third in the table.

In-form United are simply on fire at the moment, having picked up 28 points from their last 10 games - a truly staggering statistic. In Robin Van Persie they have a striker who cannot stop scoring at the moment, with the former Arsenal skipper netting in nine of his last 10 games. This makes the Dutchman an attractive price at 4/1 to open the scoring on Sunday afternoon, while he can also be backed at 5/1 to bag at least a brace.

Meanwhile Spurs are also enjoying a fine run of form, with just one defeat in their last 13 games in all competitions. However, last Saturday’s disappointing goalless draw with QPR wasn't ideal preparation for the visit of United and could affect their confidence going into the crunch match.

Fergie's high flyers go into the game as the narrow 11/8 favourites with Paddy Power, while Spurs can be backed at 2/1 to do the double over their opponents for the first time ever in the Premier League - with the 1989/1990 season the last time they achieved this feat. Meanwhile, in what is likely to be a closely fought encounter, a draw could be the way to go at 23/10.

The previous Tottenham v Man Utd fixture saw Spurs stun United at Old Trafford back in September. Their thrilling 3-2 win was their first victory at United’s stomping ground for a staggering 23 years and they will use that result as inspiration to achieve another three points on Sunday. Gareth Bale scored on that occasion and the rapid winger can be backed at 9/4 to score again this weekend, while Jermain Defoe is priced at 9/5 to score his eleventh league goal of the campaign.

Spurs haven’t beaten United at home in the last 11 meetings at White Hart Lane, with the visitors winning on eight of those occasions. The Red Devils can be backed at 8/1 to come away with a 2-1 win, while they can be backed at 4/1 to win with three of four goals in the match, where as a 3-2 scoreline is available at a tempting 18/1 with PaddyPower.

On the other hand Tottenham’s recent good form will give them confidence of ending their poor home record against United, with the hosts priced at 17/2 to register a 2-1 win. Alternatively a high scoring draw such as 2-2 could prove to be a fruitful punt at 9/1.
