Manchester United vs. Tottenham Match Analysis and Prediction

Jose Mourinho returns to the Old Trafford this weekend as side Manchester United play host to Tottenham in the Premier League. The match schedules for Sunday with kickoff at 6:30 pm.

The Red Devils head into the match after coming from back to back wins against Brighton in last week’s buildup. Spurs continue with their hectic schedule in the Premier League after qualifying for Europa Football.

The two clubs experienced a bizarre moment with the VAR decision last weekend that got people talking. When adding the Chosen One is making a return to his former club, it is enough drama to settle.

Bruno Fernandez scored a 100th-minute penalty for Red Devils to secure a 3-2 win over Brighton. What was bizarre was not the scoring style but the referee having the sentence after the final whistle due to a handball.

Things were not looking good for Tottenham as the side failed to see off a 1-0 lead over Newcastle last weekend. A controversial handball decision by VAR handed the magpies a penalty that saw the game end in a 1-1 draw courtesy of Callum Wilson.

It has been an unforgiving schedule of fixtures for Mourinho. The side went on to edge out Chelsea from the EFL Cup due to penalties. The North London club made the Europa league states after a thrilling 7-2 win over Maccabi Haifa.
