Once again Spurs find themselves embroiled in a top-four battle in the Premier League and despite the inconvenience of having to play at Wembley Stadium this season, Mauricio Pochettino’s men are a mere two points adrift of a top-four position as things stand. Nevertheless we are fast approaching the business-end of the campaign and a pretty tough line-up lies ahead with clashes with Chelsea, Arsenal and Juventus (Champions League) plus of course tonight’s meeting with Manchester United at the national stadium. Following a somewhat disappointing 1-1 draw at Southampton last time out, Pochettino will be looking for an immediate response from his men and he can take a glimmer of hope from the fact that Spurs have performed well at home to the Red Devils in recent seasons with no defeats in their last five meetings in front of the home fans.
Manchester United cannot in reality catch Manchester City in the Premier League title race, however boss Jose Mourinho will look to this season as one of progression for his side. The Red Devils remain second in the table with eight points separating them from fifth-placed Spurs and given that they finished sixth last season, the current campaign can certainly be seen as an improvement.
Indeed the Portuguese manager dealt a blow to United’s main rivals by grabbing the signature of Alexis Sanchez and the possible debut of the former Gunners player could add another element of excitement to what is already an eagerly-awaited clash. Indeed even though Mourinho’s tactics against some of the better Premier League sides has been more defensive-minded, with a wealth of attacking talent on display at Wembley tonight we’re expecting a few goals from both sides. Spurs have quality in abundance with the likes of Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen looking to make the difference and that could result in a very open game with Marcus Rashford and Alexis Sanchez also looking to find a breakthrough for the visitors.
Nevertheless on the goal-scorer front we’ll be looking to Heung Min-Son to play his part in what should prove a thrilling encounter. The South Korean international has impressed of late with five goals in his last five appearances for Spurs on home soil. He has proven to be one of Tottenham’s most outstanding attacking players and we wouldn’t be surprised were he to add to the goal-count at the national stadium tonight.
