Tottenham vs Manchester United
Tottenham vs Manchester United

For Tottenham Hotspur, this is now make or break time after a tough 1-1 draw against Liverpool last week that dropped the Spurs 7 points behind league leaders Leicester City. With only six games remaining for Tottenham and Leicester, Pochettino’s men will have to get back to their scorching form if they want to win their first league title in over 50 years.

Their attack was a bit slow against Liverpool, but the return of Erik Lamela from calf injury could be just the boost Spurs required. That attack will be needed again, as Spurs will welcome the team with the second meanest defense in the league.

Meanwhile, Manchester United arrives at White Hart Lane sitting fifth in the league table, four points behind their arch rivals Manchester City for fourth place with a match in hand.

The Red Devils have been hit hard with injury, as Wayne Rooney, Bastian Schweinsteiger, and Luke Shaw all are sidelined with long-term injury. But the youngsters have stepped up in their stead, as Anthony Martial, Jesse Lingard, and Marcus Rashford has impressed everyone as veteran Juan Mata has stabilized the attack.

Here is the starting line-up for both Tottenham and Manchester United.

Tottenham Starting Line-up:

Lloris (C), Walker, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Rose; Dier, Dembele; Lamela, Eriksen, Alli; Kane

Manchester United Starting Line-up:

De Gea, Fosu-Mensah, Smalling, Blind, Rojo, Schneiderlin, Carrick, Mata, Lingard, Martial, Rashford

Manchester United Substitutes:

Romero, Darmian, Valencia, Young, Fellaini, Herrera, Memphis.
