Manchester United v Tottenham Tipped To End In A Draw At Old Trafford

The first of the weekend's live Premier League games comes from Old Trafford on Saturday lunchtime as Manchester United take on Tottenham in a fixture that has plenty riding on it...

  • United have gone 461 minutes without conceding a league goal at Old Trafford
  • Eight of United's past eleven meetings with traditional fellow top-six opposition (Man City, Chelsea, Tottenham, Liverpool, Arsenal) have gone under 2.5 goals

Title Challengers?

It remains to be seen whether either of them can mount a genuine title challenge this season as Manchester City set the early pace and United could certainly do with a positive result after losing ground with a 0-0 draw at Liverpool before a 2-1 defeat at Huddersfield in their past two league outings.

A return to Old Trafford will be welcome as they have won all four of their home matches so far and they are 11/10 favourites for Saturday.

However, Jose Mourinho tends to be very cautious in these fixtures against better teams and it is telling that seven of their meetings with last season's top-five went under 2.5 goals.

Mourinho takes the view that it is more important not to lose and that is why we will be backing a draw at 12/5 (Bet 365), with defences potentially coming out on top.
Match Odds:

Lukaku v Kane

Tottenham have won all four of their away league matches and they are looking to bounce back from their stunning Carabao Cup exit at the hands of West Ham, with Mauricio Pochettino sure to be demanding a response from his team.

Tottenham traditionally struggled in this Manchester United v Spurs fixture as they won just two meetings during a period stretching from the turn of the century to when Sir Alex Ferguson retired at the end of the 2012/13 campaign. They have won three of eight clashes since (drawn two, lost three), albeit they have lost their past three visits to Old Trafford without scoring a single goal.

Harry Kane, who has notched eight league goals this term and is 4/1 to be first goalscorer (Betfred), only has one goal from seven previous appearances against United and he comes up against the brilliant David De Gea, who has gone 461 minutes without conceding a league goal at home.

Meanwhile, Romelu Lukaku has notched seven league goals this season and he is 7/2 favourite to score first, although he is being labelled as a 'flat track bully' and has scored just once in eight against Spurs.

With that in mind, backing 'No' in the both teams to score bracket looks like a solid option at even-money with Paddy Power.
