class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>Both the Red Devils and Spurs have been amongst the goals this season and our tipster is backing yet more action when they meet at Old Trafford
Manchester United are looking for their first home win of the season when they welcome Tottenham to Old Trafford on Sunday.
It has not been the most convincing of starts by the Red Devils after they lost at home to Crystal Palace and were lucky to escape Brighton with three points last week, and this fixture has the makings for another tough test.
Although Spurs have picked up only four points from three games, one of those was a 5-2 drubbing at Southampton and they were incredibly unfortunate to only draw with Newcastle last weekend after a contentious penalty saved the Magpies.

Man United won 10 of their 19 league games at Old Trafford last season and bet365 make them 17/20 (1.85) to pick up their first home victory of the campaign on Sunday.
Spurs mustered just four wins away from home last season and they are priced at 3/1 (4.0) to hand United a second straight home league defeat, whilst the draw is available at 14/5 (3.80).

Manchester United vs Tottenham Preview
With so much of the season left to play it would certainly not be a disaster for either team to lose this game, but given the ordinary fashion in which both have sides have started, a win would of course be very welcome.
United’s home record against top-six sides last season was exceptional with four wins and a draw, whilst the only point Spurs picked up against the top six was at Manchester City.
However, the positive for Mourinho is that his side did score in all five of those games and are in good stead to do so in this match after recording 12 shots on target against Newcastle last week and netting five times against Southampton the week prior.
Manchester United vs Tottenham Tips and Predictions
With Spurs having scored six goals in their last two games and United with four in their most recent pair, bet365’s 4/5 (1.80) on over 2.5 goals looks the best bet for this Premier League clash on Sunday.
