Spurs are fully in the title race and another three points against one of the other top six would strengthen their chances.

This is a game of high importance for Spurs as they look to make up ground on the top four. The Lilywhites start the next round of matches in fifth place and trailing second-placed Manchester United by eight points. So there’s a lot of work for Spurs to do still but taking three points off the Red Devils would be a huge bonus for them. United though are on a good unbeaten streak of form, just like Spots are. Tottenham are 5/4 at Paddy Power for the win, with the draw at 11/5 and Manchester United at 23/10* (Betting Odds taken on January 28th, 2018 at 6:30 p.m.)
Spurs have put together a six-match unbeaten streak in the Premier League (W4 D2) but they have had a couple of struggles lately. Recent 1-1 draws against West Ham and Southampton were a real surprise and then they were poor out at Notts County in the FA Cup on the weekend, having to rescue a replay by a 1-1 draw. Spurs though are unbeaten in their last eleven Premier League home games, winning seven of their last nine there, so they have been going well at Wembley. They have scored at least two goals in four of their last five on home soil. Overall they have netted 26 home goals in their campaign and Harry Kane has ten of those. Kane is the Paddy Power first goalscorer favourite at 10/3 for the game* (betting odds taken on January 28th, 2018 at 10:12 p.m.). The Lilywhites have conceded only the one goal in their last three at home against United and they have conceded just nine home goals this season which is an average of 0.75 per game against. This will likely end up being a low scoring game and under 2.5 goals has some good appeal for the fixture. You know there will be an emphasis on defence coming from the visitors. Tottenham have scored in each of their last twelve league games and have scored in 92% of their home matches.
Given the state of play in the league table would Manchester United be happy with a point? Probably. They are in good form and a pretty solid option for a top-four finish as it stands. They are unbeaten in their last eight league games and have won their last three on the trot as well. They have four clean sheets under their belt in a row as well so they are going strong, even if their performance are far from being high octane and flowing. They have won their last two away games and they are unbeaten in their last six on the road as well. Overall their away form is W7 D3 L2 for the season, and they have averaged 1.8 goals per game on their travels. In the Paddy Power correct score market, a 1-1 draw is a shortest-priced option at 11/2 and the Red Devils have scored in each of their last six away games. Anthony Martial has netted in the last two road games for United and in each of his last three home and away so he has hit a bit of form. The two defeats that Jose Mourinho’s men have suffered this season were both one-goal margin losses against Huddersfield and Chelsea. They have scored in 83% of their road games and will cause Spurs some nervy moments of course.
Tottenham are on a five-match unbeaten streak of Premier League form at home against the Red Devils, winning two of those. They have won their last two on home soil against United but the Lilywhites suffered a 1-0 loss at Old Trafford earlier this season. Both teams have scored in just one of the last seven games between these two in the top flight and Tottenham have failed to score in five of those seven matches against Manchester United.
Spurs really need a result in this one to avoid getting cut further adrift from the top four in the league. The Lilywhites have been going well on home soil and they have to take the game to the visitors as this is a huge opportunity for them. Back the home side to get the points. Sheer initiative may win the day.

So this will be an emotional evening at Spurs because this will be their last ever game at White Hart Lane. Their shot at winning the league title was pretty much ruined in a defeat at West Ham last weekend, but they will want to go out with a bang on home soil. Manchester United are still in the picture for a top five finish but lost in North London against Arsenal last weekend. Spurs are 7/10 for the win, with the draw at 14/5 and Manchester United at 15/4.

Tottenham’s season came to a crashing halt pretty much last weekend, as they lost their London derby with West Ham, leaving them seven points behind leaders Chelsea going into the next round of action with just three games to play. That defeat was out on the road though and Spurs remain unbeaten at White Hart Lane this season with a brilliant W16 D2 L0 record on the board there. This will then be their last ever game at the Lane so it will be an emotional afternoon on Sunday. Spurs are on a 13 match winning streak at home currently in the Premier League and they are unbeaten in their last eighteen there. They have gone three games at home without conceding as well and a Tottenham to win to nil wager at William Hill returns a price of 7/4 which will have some good appeal.
Tottenham could go unbeaten at home for the first time in a league season since 1964/65 (W16 D2 L0 this season) and with their big winning streak at the Lane, that is just one short of their club record run of 14 between January and October 1987. Spurs won this corresponding fixture last season 3-0, ending a 14 match winless streak at home against the Red Devils (D6 L8). That was actually the only game in their last five Premier League matches against United that Spurs have scored in. Under 2.5 goals at William Hill in the match fetches a price of 17/20. Harry Kane has failed to score against Man Utd in the Premier League but he is a 10/11 favourite in the anytime goalscorer market with Dele Alli at 8/5. Running in the correct score market, a Tottenham 1-0 result is a 13/2 quote.
Three of United’s four defeats this season in the league have been on a Sunday immediately after a European match. They had that extra game on Thursday night against Celta Vigo so this is a very tough game for them and Jose Mourinho as a manager has failed to win his last four visits to Tottenham (D2 L2). United haven’t scored in their last two at White Hart Lane and currently, United haven’t scored an away goal against any of the current top six in the league since January 1st, 2015 in a defeat for Chelsea at Tottenham. Four of their seven away games against top six sides since then have ended 0-0. A 0-0 correct score at William Hill is a 9/1 punt. Manchester United fielded an understrength side against Arsenal last weekend and lost their massive unbeaten streak of form. They are set to rest players for this one as well. A top four finish looks beyond them now but they can pressure the Gunners for fifth. Marcus Rashford is an 11/4 anytime goalscorer for them.
Tottenham home win: The Lilywhites are a class above the Red Devils and then some at the moment. This is a big evening for them in the last game at the Lane and they will probably produce a comfortable win.

There’s a big game at White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon in the Barclays Premier League. Tottenham have it all to do now to try and close down league leaders Leicester and they get a home game against Manchester United, a side whom they have struggled to beat in recent times on home soil. Can they do it on Sunday when it is going to matter more than ever? With Manchester United having won only two of their last nine on the road, this is as good of a chance as any.
Spurs have produced a brilliant season on home soil and they have won four of their last five there (D1) in the top flight. They have suffered just the two home losses this season and one of those was against Leicester. The Lilywhites will be hoping Harry Kane turns up in top form and continues his fantastic season, the England man is looking to add to his 22 goal tally this season in the Premier League. With Manchester United having lost four of their last seven out of their last eight out on the road, Spurs go as favourites.

Tottenham have to step back on the gas again after a draw at Anfield last weekend. That has left Spurs seven points behind leaders Leicester and with the Foxes playing earlier on Sunday, that could be a bigger gap by the time Spurs kick off. The Lilywhites have to bank on some home form here to get the job done. Manchester United have their own agenda of trying to get into the Champions League next season and their youngsters have been carrying the can very well lately. Spurs are 10/11 to win, with the draw at 5/2 and Manchester United at 3/1.

Spurs have lost just the two home games this season in the league
Tottenham have the best goal difference in the Premier League this season
Manchester United have lost four of their last six away from home
The last three meetings at White Hart Lane have been drawn
Game of the weekend hopefully. Spurs dropped a couple of precious points in the title hunt last week when they could only draw with Liverpool at Anfield. Harry Kane rescued a point for the Lilywhites after having fallen behind in the game. That has left them seven points behind leaders Leicester and so Spurs just have to win from here on out most likely to get their hands on the title. This is a tricky game for them, but they have been in great home form this season. Spurs have gone unbeaten in their last five at White Hart Lane in the top flight, earning wins in four of those five. This is where they just have to step on the gas and go for it. But they have lost their last two against the Red Devils now and under Mauricio Pochettino, Spurs haven’t scored in three meetings with the Red Devils.
Harry Kane has 22 goals for the season and he is trading at even money in the anytime goalscorer market for the game. The last time that Spurs took a league win at home over Unite was back on the final day of the 2000/01 season, so it’s been a while. With a superb W9 D5 L2 record at the Lane this season, they may have the edge in the game with so much at stake. This one to go over 2.5 goals is trading at a price of even money with Paddy Power and four of Tottenham’s last five home league games have gone over the goal line. Four of the last five Premier League meetings between these two at the Lane have ended in a draw.
Manchester United could yet finish the season on a high of a top four finish. They are well in the mix. United haven’t lost any of their last 14 Premier League games against Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane. However, six of the last eight there have been drawn (W8 D6). So a pretty good record from the Red Devils and it is hard to back them for the win as they have taken just two wins in their last nine away games in the top flight, losing four of those. Anthony Martial has netted three goals in his last four league games and is up at 11/4 in the anytime goalscorer market. United have taken just two clean sheets in their last ten away games, so there should be some goals flying around in this one you would imagine.
Worth running with Tottenham in this one as they have had a brilliant season and hold the league’s best goal difference at the moment. United have been shaky no the road for most of the season and while their youngsters have been putting in good shifts, Spurs have the ability to control this game and get the three points on the board. Home win.

There were successes for both on Boxing Day with United taking a home win over Newcastle and Spurs winning on the road at Leicester. The head to head form in this fixture is all with the Red Devils, who are unbeaten in their last 13 league visits to the Lane, and the Red Devils are running as 5/4 favourites for the victory, with home side Spurs at 2/1. The draw, as it has been in each of the last two meetings at White Hart Lane, is trading at 5/2.
Manchester United’s forwards are firing well and the first goalscorer market will probably be active for this one. If your chosen first goalscorer selection for the match doesn’t score the first goal of the game but scores the second, then online betting site William Hill will refund your lost stake as a free bet up to £50. There are lost stake refunds on select markets for games which end in a 0-0 draw as well.
Spurs seem to be settling down with three straight wins in the Premier League. They haven’t been totally convincing wins, the triumphs over Swansea, Burnley and Leicester all coming by a 2-1 scoreline for the Lilywhites. A Spurs 2-1 correct score on Sunday is trading at a price of 10/1. However, punters will probably see that as a big risk because Spurs have won none of their last 13 Premier League games against the Red Devils at White Hart Lane (W0 D5 L8). They have drawn the last two there though, so that may be a reasonable conclusion to weigh up in this one.
Tottenham have put up a shaky W4 D1 L4 record at White Hart Lane this season, but are now unbeaten in their last two there (W2 D1). Those two wins, were incidentally, 2-1 scoreline victories for the Lilywhites. 44% of Tottenham’s home games in the league and 44% of their away games have been settled either way by a 2-1 scoreline. They haven’t been a high scoring side at home though this season, scoring just seven in their last eight Premier League outings at White Hart Lane. But after going 22 Premier league games without a win against United, Spurs have won two of the last four (W2 D2).
While Spurs don’t have much forward power to bank on in the goalscorer markets, United do. Wayne Rooney has scored nine goals in 13 Barclays Premier League appearances for Manchester United and six of his nine goals against Spurs have been netted at White Hart Lane. With Rooney firing off against a brace against Newcastle on Boxing Day, he’ll probably have backers at 6/4 in the anytime goalscorer market at online bookmaker William Hill. Robin van Persie is an even money shot, with Radamel Falcao at 6/5. United have now put together an eight match ban streak in the Premier League, with an impressive seven wins in that streak.
Probably worth pushing over 2.5 goals for a price of 4/6 because United have kept just one clean sheet in their last 10 Premier League away games. The Red Devils are unbeaten in their last three away games in the top flight (W2 D1) but those two wins have been their only ones in their last ten away from Old Trafford (W2 D5 L3). Enough there for Spurs to pull off a surprise win? United do have the scoring power to take the three points in this one, but they have managed just one clean sheet in their last five league outings, and with Spurs in form, it could be a tight.
There may not be a winner in this one and the draw looks value. Spurs are just finding ways to win, albeit against lower ranking sides in the top flight. United pack the bigger punch going forwards obviously and while both teams to score seems likely, the two meetings at White Hart Lane have produced the draw, would expect more of the same.
