After an unsuccessful return to the Old Trafford, Mourinho will be looking to redeem his pride as they host side Manchester United at the new Tottenham stadium. The match schedules for 15th March with kickoff at 19:30 GMT.
Tottenham faced an unceremonious exit from the last 16 knockout stages of the Champions League after a 3-0 defeat to RB Leipzig. The exit came as a surprise for Mourinho who’s main mandate was to win silverware with the side.
Mourinho also faces another uphill task with the current form in the Premier League. It has been a nursing train at the camp with injuries piling up after each game. With a lack of attacking threat, Mourinho will dig deep to fend off the pace and agility from the Red Devils.
Coach Ole Gunnar will be coming from a successful 2-0 win at the Manchester Derby. Ole Gunnar’s win pushed the red devils fifth in the table with 48 points. There is a clear chance for Champion’s league football for the Red Devils with a win over Tottenham.
With the bad blood between both clubs, will it prove to be too much for Mourinho to pull off his first win against the Red Devils? Will Ole Gunnar continue his dominance over the top six clubs?
