Manchester United vs Tottenham Preview
All eyes will be on Old Trafford when Manchester United and Tottenham face each other in the Premier League derby. The Red Devils have been playing below expectations at the start of the season and they were totally outplayed by Brighton in their last league match. Jose Mourinho’s troops are desperate to bounce back from the 3-2 loss to the Seagulls and we predict that they are going to fight tooth and nail against Tottenham. As expected, Spurs recorded a 3-1 win over Fulham in a small London derby, with Harry Kane scoring his first goal of the season. The English attacker did well to open his goal-scoring account and, no doubt, he is going to pose a big threat for the opposition defenders in Monday’s football game at Old Trafford. Taking everything into account, a close match is on the horizon, therefore, we predict the two teams are going to share the spoils on Matchday 3.
