Tottenham v Manchester United Stats & Analysis
This match sees two of the Premier League’s form teams face off. Only Manchester City have taken more points from their last six matches than Spurs and United. But there are some worrying signs for Jose Mourinho’s men. The match against Newcastle last weekend showed some weaknesses in their game. They allowed the Magpies 22 shots on goal, the most they have created in a Premier League match this season.
But United’s offensive output has waned in recent months. They’ve scored more than once in just two of their last nine matches in all competitions. Their average output in that spell is just 0.88 goals per game.
They’ll hope that their away form is enough to get them through this match. Manchester United’s incredible away record just keeps ticking on in the Premier League. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men haven’t lost a Premier League away match for well over a year. Right now, they’re struggling to turn draws into losses. They’ve shared the points in four of their last five league games on the road.
This match also sees Jose Mourinho come up against his former side. That’s nothing new for the Portuguese boss who has regularly faced off against old employers. Mourinho does have a very favourable record at home. Mourinho has won 12 of his 16 Premier League home matches when managing against one of his former clubs.
Tottenham v Manchester United Bets
But they’re the slight outsiders to win here. Tottenham are 3.00 to win this match and to complete an impressive double against Manchester United. The draw is 3.70 but the visitors are the favourites to take the three points. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men are 2.52 to get the victory. The draw looks good value considering United’s recent record on the road.
This could well be a game of two halves. Tottenham have the second-best first-half record in the Premier League behind Manchester City. United are down in midtable for that particular stat. It’s 3.65 for Spurs to win the first half.
It’s a different story after the break. United have the best second-half record in the league while Spurs are down in midtable. Only two sides have dropped more points from a winning position than Jose Mourinho’s men so don’t be surprised if United come back into this one. United are 3.13 to win the second half. A halftime/fulltime bet of X/2 is 6.25 and 1/2 is way out at 31.00.
Spurs are strong starters and they showed that in the reverse fixture. There were three goals inside the opening seven minutes in that 6-1 win for the North London side. Jose Mourinho’s men have scored more goals inside the first 10 minutes of their matches than any other Premier League side this season. It’s 4.33 for the first goal to be scored between the 1st and 10th minutes. 3.50 for the first half to have more goals than the second also has high value.
