Manchester United vs Spurs: The Preview The Prediction

The two Premier League sides are set to face each other again, as Tottenham look to break their atrocious record at Old Trafford where they have failed to win in over two decades.

Since the start of the Premier League, Spurs have failed to win at Old Trafford but tomorrow Villas-Boas is looking to break the curse as his attacking team go to the Theatre of Dreams.

Manchester United will undoubtedly control the game and realistically it would be a disasterous game for the Red Devils if they fail to get a goal. With Rooney, Van Persie and Kagawa, the team look strong in attack and will hope to capitalise on any mistakes the defence make.

Tottenham on the other hand could fight hard against the Manchester side. With Dembele running rings around the side earlier in the season when he was still a crucial part of the Fulham team, his dribbling skills can be utilised immensely.

Not only this but the speed Tottenham have when going forward could see them turn over the Manchester defence. The injury plagued defence seems to be rehabilitating more often then match fit, but with Vidic returning for the side, it could be very good news for Spurs.

Bale, Lennon and Defoe all going forward is ferocious and will unsettle the likes of Evra, Ferdinand, Evans or Vidic due to their pace and unpredictability.

Manchester United on the other hand lack pace going forward with Carrick, Scholes, and Giggs following up a 30 year old Van Persie against Kyle Walker and Jan Vertonghen.

This game will be an attacking game from the get-go and could see this game become a very high-scoring game indeed, and an absolute smasher for the neutrals.

Prediction: Manchester United 3- 2 Tottenham
