Manchester United Vs Tottenham Matchweek 30
Why Bet On Tottenham
Tottenham is in eighth place in the EPL standings, having scored 47 goals while allowing 40 defensively (-7). The Spurs come into this affair riding an ugly, six-game winless streak that includes an embarrassing 3-0 shutout loss at the hands of Leipzig in their last match before the coronavirus break back on March 10. The Spurs have gone 0-2-4 over their last six while allowing 14 goals during the span and scoring just half of that figure. In their last EPL match before the break, Tottenham was handed a 1-1 draw against Burnley on March 7. Harry Kane leads the team in scoring with 11 goals while Son has added nine goals and seven assists and Alli has scored eight times for Tottenham. There are no injured or suspended players for Tottenham coming into this contest as star striker Harry Kane makes his return to the pitch.
Why Bet On Manchester United
Manchester United is in fifth place in the Premier League standings with 44 goals scored and 30 allowed defensively (+14). Man U has gone a tremendous 11 games without suffering a loss and comes into this matchup off of consecutive wins over Manchester City (2-0) and Arsenal, whom they beat 3-0 behind closed doors at Ethiad Stadium on Wednesday. Manchester United has gone 4-4-6 SU, 4-8-2 ATS and 2-11-1 O/U on the road this season. Marcus Rashford leads Manchester United in scoring with 14 goals while Martial has added 11 goals. Man U. has no injuries coming into this matchup as Rashford and Paul Pogba are set to return for United after long injury layoffs.
Expert Analysis and Prediction
Tottenham might be playing at home in this intriguing pairing, but the Hotspurs look like a team that is facing an uphill battle in order to come out on top in this matchup. Tottenham has looked out of sync in six straight matches while Manchester United has been on a very nice roll and kept their winning ways going in their first game since the break by recording a shutout win. I’m expecting United to be lifted by the returns of the gifted Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford more than Tottenham will be boosted by the return of Harry Kane. I’m going with Man U. to get t done despite being on the road in this one!
