Tottenham Hotspur travel to Old Trafford tomorrow evening in the final game of game week three in the Premier League. The Red Devils will be looking to bounce back from defeat against Brighton last Sunday whilst Spurs will be keen to extend their 100% record to three games.

Back in April 2016 Tottenham fans were treated to one of the best displays against Manchester United that they’ve ever put in in the Premier League era. With the game looking like it might end up as a draw going into the last twenty minutes, Mauricio Pochettino’s side turned on the style and smashed three past David De Gea is just six minutes, courtesy of Dele Alli, Toby Alderweireld and Erik Lamela.
The victory over two years ago is one that has lived long in the memories of a lot of Tottenham fans and the iconic piece of Martin Tyler commentary will be played on repeat by some Spurs fans as they prepare themselves for the huge clash tomorrow. Tomorrow’s meeting between the sides is both teams first real test this season against a big side and it will make for an interesting watch to see if Tottenham can start beating the top sides away from home.

Wouldn’t it be great if Toby scores against Man Utd?

The Lillywhites will be keen to see a similar scoreline tomorrow night to the one they recorded back in 2016 and if they can get that they could go joint top of the Premier League with Liverpool and Watford.
