The Tottenham vs. Manchester United match will be played on Wednesday, January 31, at the Wembley Stadium, London. Tottenham is currently 5th in the league with 45 points, while Manchester United is 2nd on the table with 53 points at the moment.


  • Tottenham is in a series of eight games without a defeat in all competitions. In their last five games they recorded three 1:1 draws.
  • Manchester United is in a series of five victories in all competitions. They haven't conceded a goal in six straight matches.


In their previous ten meetings, Tottenham won three games, Manchester United won four matches, while three games ended in a draw. In their last six matches we haven't seen a draw and each time the home team recorded a victory.


Tottenham needs to win the upcoming match to get back into the race for the top four. If they lose it, they will probably fail to qualify for Champions League. They defeated Manchester United at home in the last two matches, while they are undefeated against them for five games at home. The Red Devils haven't won a match in London since 2012. This will be the clash between Harry Kane and Romelu Lukaku. Kane is currently in much better form and Spurs think it might be enough for the win.

Manchester United is in an excellent form at the moment, with five straight victories in all competitions. If they defeat Tottenham in the upcoming game, they will eliminate one rival from the race for the top four. However, Mourinho usually has a defensive approach in derby games, especially away from Old Trafford, so Manchester United would be happy with a draw as well.
