Team Form: ____ Manu __ WWDLD ______ Spurs WDWWW ___
(All Competitions)

Man Utd have lost three of their last seven home league against Spurs (W4), including the exact fixture 0-3 last season. The had only lost 2 of their previous 36 at home against us in the top flight (W27 D7). They have picked up just 18 points from their opening 14 Premier League (PL) matches this season (W4 D6 L4), their worst start to a league season since 1988-89 campaign, when they also had 18 points and went on to finish 11th. Since keeping 3 consecutive PL clean sheets in February, Man Utd have only kept two in their last 25 games in the competitions (36 goals conceded).

The away side won both PL meetings between Man Utd and us last season, after the home side had won 7 in a row in such games. We have lost more PL games against Man Utd than we have vs any other side int the competition (34). We won our last away league game against West Ham picking up as many points in that game as we had in our previous 12 on the road in the PL (W0 D3 L9).

Our boss Jose Mourinho could become just the third Manager to win a PL away game at Old Trafford with two different clubs( after Martin O'neill and Rafael Benitez), having won 3-1 with Chelsea in May 2005. He could also become our first ever Manager to win our first first three top-flight games in charge of the club.

Both us and Man Utd have dropped 12 points from winning positions in the PL this season - only Aston Villa have dropped more (13).

Dele has been directly involved in 3 goals in his last two PL games (2 goals, 1 assist), as many as he had in his final 12 appearances under Poch.

Should be a spicy one this. I can see Jose doing something OTT if we win.

If they start with Fred and Perreira in the centre of the park I will be gutted if we aren’t coming away with all 3 points.

I agree and it also makes me think we should go even more attacking rather than dier dm. Ndombele and lo celso cm?

We can't defend anyway so let's just go out and attack them. More than enough about us to cause them serious damage.

Utd were shite today so wouldn’t be surprised to see a reaction & score draw, however they are 100% there for the taking, would love Jose to go up there & bring the 3 points home, I can see us beating them but we’ll defo concede so it’s going to be close ....... COYS !!!!

I have a feeling about this one ... 3-0 Spurs... Dunno why but hope I'm right.
I also think He will play Erikson and N'Dombele, although I hope its Le Celso instead of Erikson.
But whatever the team is - I can hardly wait.
