“Lads, it’s Tottenham”. The great Sir Alex Ferguson did not have to say anything to his players before the Red Devils’ Spurs matches against Spurs, because United won anyway. These times are long gone.
Manchester United vs Tottenham Betting Predictions and Odds
Just as long as Manchester United (ranked 9th, 18 points) is now in search of a somewhat worthy successor to the Scotsman. David Moyes, Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho failed in this gigantic task.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will not be able to do it either, that much seems certain. In a league in which three coaches were knocked out in the past two weeks, Solskjaer, along with Everton’s Marco Silva, is currently running a neck-and-neck race who may pick up his papers next.
Because to believe that Manchester United will actually play for the title with the Norwegian next season, more than a dozen pints are needed.
Back in the Premier League is known to be Jose Mourinho. The Portuguese followed Tottenham Hotspur (5th place, 20 points) ahead of Mauricio Pochettino, who was extremely popular and had a lasting and lasting development but who could not win any titles.
Spurs boss Daniel Levy now installed Mourinho, who won titles wherever he worked. Also with Manchester United. In 2018, “The Special One” reached second place in the Premier League, which Mourinho called at the time as the biggest success of his coaching career. Also Mourinho threw with his harsh criticism proverbially some players under the bus.
Just over a year after his dismissal, Mourinho’s statements now appear in a different light. Perhaps there was a lot more truth in all of the statements than experts and press wanted to admit at the time.
Nevertheless, the Portuguese will not be able to count on love expressions on Wednesday evening at Old Trafford as he walks along the sideline to the coaching bench. For Mourinho it is (expert activity outside) the first return to his old workplace.
The 56-year-old is against Manchester United with his new team. Tottenham according to odds of bookmakers first contender for three points. Another fact that underpins the lack of development of the Red Devils under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Manchester United – Statistics & Current Form
The question must be allowed why a club with the financial background, the global appeal and the legendary status of Manchester United could not find a more suitable coach than his former substitute, who had previously trained only Cardiff and Molde in the professional field.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who took over the coaching job at Jose Mourinho’s Old Trafford last December, only made four wins in his last 18 league games.
For a United Mans Club, this is just not good enough. If you take the first 22 Premier League games of the last five permanent coach of the Red Devils for advice, Solskjaer comes by far the lowest profit share (27.3 percent).
Moyes, van Gaal and Mourinho all came in 50 percent, Sir Alex Ferguson on 40.9 percent. Even Unai Emery, hunted by the court last Friday, had a 49% win at Arsenal.
No wonder that between Manchester United and Tottenham the odds of the bookies as well as the prediction of the betting base in the Spurs equally the favorite on Wednesday evening on three points see.
The Red Devils collected only 18 points from the first 14 Premier League games (4-6-4), which corresponds to the worst start to a league season since 1988/89. At that time, United had also at this time of the season also 18 counters in the account and finished the campaign at the end of the season in eleventh place.
A similar scenario threatens the record champion again this time, when the decision makers continue to hold Solskjaer. Of course, the sympathetic Norwegian is a club legend by his last-minute goal 1999 against Bayern and no fan wishes him something bad, but the results and achievements of the last few months no longer speak for a turn.
To this day, no clear plan, no real philosophy under Solskjaer in the square recognizable. Even on the defensive, many questions remain open.
Although United committed in the summer for an incredible amount of money with Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka new defenders, games without conceding remain a rarity. In February, the Red Devils played in the Premier League three times in a row to zero.
In the 25 league games since then, there were only two more white West, but there were 36 goals in this time window. United also gave in this season already twelve points after leadership back from the hand.
In the Premier League this will only be topped by Aston Villa (13 points). This week could decide on the fate of Solskjaer, because after the task against Tottenham waiting for next Saturday, the Manchester derby at City.
Eric Bailly, Timothy Fosu-Mensah and Marcos Rojo are injured. Scott McTomay and Paul Pogba could be available after injury.

Tottenham – Statistics & Current Form
Once Jose Mourinho introduced himself to Chelsea as “The Special One”. The first three games of duty at Mourinho’s new employer Tottenham, in which the Spurs scored eleven goals and conceded six, made the Portuguese “The Entertaining One”.
For the first time since April, the North Londoners again won two league games in a row and go so in Manchester United – Tottenham, according to odds of bookmakers even slightly favored in the match. But not only the entertainment value of the Spurs was recently high, the perspective is given again.
If the Spurs reeled under Pochettino like a battered boxer through the no-bet-land, Tottenham now knocks right back at the door to the Champions League.
In the recent two Premier League games, Tottenham were six points off Chelsea and are six points clear of the strike distance, especially with 72 points left until the end of the season.
Three points on Wednesday night at Old Trafford at Man United, and Mourinho would be only the third of the Premier League coaches who would have won with two different teams away in the theater of dreams.
Tottenham won their most recent away fixture at West Ham, earning exactly as many points as they did in the past twelve Premier League outings under former coach Mauricio Pochettino (0-3-9).
The Argentine had lost his magic at the end and also lost support in the cabin. Under Mourinho, on the other hand, former problem children, such as Dele Alli, are blossoming again.
Alli was directly involved in his recent two Premier League games on three goals (two goals, one assist). For this he needed under Pochettino last twelve games. Mourinho offered Alli back to his favorite position: in the middle of an attacking three-pointers behind top striker Harry Kane.
Moussa Sissoko also feels the Mourinho effect and scored against Bournemouth. The Frenchman ended his since September 2017 (against Huddersfield) 69 league games lasting dry spell.
Toby Alderweireld, whose contract expires at the end of the season as well as the working papers of Christian Eriksen, Danny Rose and Jan Vertonghen, would never have extended under Pochettino. Now the Belgian should be ready to continue to commit to Tottenham.
Still there is a lot of work ahead of Mourinho, especially he has to find the balance in his team. Bournemouth had registered 20 shots on Saturday. Last time more in a home game, the Spurs suffered in September 2015 against Man City (22). Like the Red Devils, Tottenham have already lost 12 points on their own lead this season, but have not scored a point under Mourinho yet.
Due to the weak form of the Red Devils advises Manchester United against Tottenham our prediction for the tip “2/2”. Captain Hugo Lloris, Michel Vorm, Erik Lamela and Ben Davies are out of action due to injuries. In midfield, Harry Winks and Tanguy Ndombele duel for a place in the starting XI.
