One of two headline clashes on Saturday, Jose Mourinho’s Spurs side travel north to Manchester having been knocked out of the FA Cup in a 5-4 thriller with Everton in midweek.
While this is traditionally a ‘Big Six’ clash, form would suggest the hosts largely have the upper hand in this one as their 3-1 win over Championship side Swansea set a new English record of 15 consecutive wins in all competitions from a top-flight team.
That defeat at Goodison Park was the fourth in five matches for the Lilywhites who are really struggling to gather any momentum at the moment. Their only win in this time came against a relegation threatened West Brom side and fans will be needing a Mourinho masterclass if they’re to get anything from this game.
It should be noted that Tottenham ran out 2-0 winners in the reverse fixture back in November, though the situations at both clubs were starkly different with The London side coming into that game unbeaten since the opening day and off the back of three straight victories, while their visitors had yet to get up and running in the league after a W3-D3-L1 record heading into that match, so we’d take it with a pinch of salt.
