Tottenham Hotspur managed to gain the upper-hand against Chelsea in their last outing as they secured a 1-0 victory at Wembley Stadium.
Spurs still find themselves in the race for the Premier League title at this point in their season, which is a great achievement for Mauricio Pochettino and his troops.
However, they’ll welcome Manchester United to Wembley Stadium in their next Premier League fixture. The Red Devils are unbeaten under the guidance of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, so the Lilywhites will need to be at their best.
Nevertheless, Pochettino will bring Solkskjaer and Man United back to reality if this star DUO start…
Harry Winks has defied expectations in the current campaign as he continues to excel in the middle of midfield. He plays a very simple game and is brilliant at doing it, which is what makes him such an effective player.
The Englishman put in an impressive performance against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg recently, so he should be one of the first names on the teamsheet for today’s clash.
Manchester United have dominated proceedings in the middle of the park, so his tackling and ability to intercept will help stop the Red Devils in their tracks.
Harry Kane has been prolific so far this season with 20 goals and six assists to his name at this moment in time.
The Englishman is bang in-form at a crucial point in Spurs’ season, having scored five goals in their last four Premier League games, along with producing the only goal against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup first leg.
So, Pochettino will be relying on his star man to secure them all three points against the Red Devils, with United’s defence yet to really be tested since Solskjaer took over.
