The most attractive fixture in English Premier League will be played today at White Hart Lane where Tottenham Hotspurs host Manchester United and Jose Mourinho. Although the Spurs didn't manage to win the title for the second year in a row, they will try to secure the second place in the standings, and of course, they will not allow for the Red Devils to put down a win on their ground. Manchester United advanced to the finals of Europa League, and this will be a huge boost for them, and we are sure that they are going to try to reach the fourth place in the standings just in case things in the finals get on the wrong side.
Tottenham Hotspurs News And Form
After 9 straight wins in Premier League, the Spurs lost the last game against West Ham United, and with this defeat, their chances for the title were crushed. Before this match, they were fantastic as they had four straight wins without conceding a goal and scoring 11. When looking the last 5 games, Tottenham is amazing, with 5 wins, 4 of them without conceding a goal and the overall goal difference 18-1.
Just to mention that Tottenham has 13 consecutive wins at White Hart Lane at the moment, and they are the best team in the league when looking the home record, with 16 wins and only two draws, and goal difference 45-8.
Manchester United News And Form.
As the earlier said, Manchester United advanced to the finals of Europa League, where they are going to meet Ajax Amsterdam. In order to achieve such a thing, the Red Devils sacrificed many games in Premier League this season, and despite the fact that they had some incredible runs, we are still under the impression that they were saving themselves for European challenges. In the last three games in Premiership, during the clashes with Celta Vigo, United won only two points. In their last 6 matches in Premier League, we saw under 2.5 goals. We think that they will enter this encounter with 100% of their strength as they have enough time until the finals against Ajax.
Head to head
In the last 10 games, Manchester United is slightly better. They have 4 victories, 3 losses, and 3 draws. In the first part of the season, United won at Old Trafford with Henrik Mkhitaryan scoring in the first half.
But Manchester United didn't win at White Hart Lane since 2012, and they have three draws and one defeat during that time.

It will be an entertaining game today, and Tottenham is the slight favorite in this one. We think that at least 3 goals will be involved in this event, and for sure Tottenham will try to score as many goals as possible at their stadium. But Manchester will not go down without a fight. The counter attacks they produce are lethal, and throughout this game, they will be a lot of opportunities for such things to happen.
Goals: Over 2.5
