Manchester United have not won any of their last two games in the league and returning to victory ways would be on the minds of their players ahead of the important Tottenham Hotspur game this weekend. With Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur fighting for a place in the top four, the Red Devils can steal a march on their North London opposition with an home win at the end of their Premier League encounter on Saturday evening.
Spurs are the form team ahead of the game having won their last two league matches scoring nine goals in the process and without conceding a single goal. The North Londoners secured three points in each of their last twomatches after a run of one win and four defeats from five league matches. The two-match victory run in the league started with the 4-0 win at Leeds United penultimate weekend thanks to the first half goals from Irish fullback Matt Doherty, Swedish international DejanKulusevski and star player Harry Kane before Son Heung-Min wrapped up the win in the second half.
Spurs made it two straight wins with the 5-0 home win over Merseyside club Everton on Monday with goals from Michael Keane (own goal), Son Heung-Min and Harry Kane in the first half, while substitute Sergio Reguilon and English striker Kane scored again in the second half.
While Spurs have picked up the maximum six points from their last two league games, Manchester United have one point from their last two league games. They were forced to a goalless draw at home by Watford who are struggling to escape the relegation zone before losing 4-1 to Manchester City in the derby away from home.
Manchester United have already lost fourth spot as a result of their recent poor league form and they need a win against Spurs to breathe life into the top-four challenge once again.
