When these two teams last met in the Barclays Premier League, Manchester United found themselves on the wrong side of a 3-2 score line courtesy of an outstanding Tottenham performance. Few will argue that Sir Alex’s men deserved anything from that match, so make no bones about it; he and his team will be out for revenge this Sunday.
United have been on an exceptional run in the League as of late, picking up no less than 22 points out of a possible 24 in their last 8 games, counting the likes of Liverpool, Manchester City and Newcastle amongst the teams that they have bested in recent weeks.

They have won seven and lost only one of their last 10 league fixtures. But if September’s meeting between the two clubs showed us anything, it’s that form counts for nothing, and Spurs are more than capable of punishing the would-be champions.
