Tottenham Hotspur host Manchester United from Hotspur Stadium on Friday afternoon.
Tottenham Hotspur enter this match sitting in 8th place on 41 points with a record of 11 wins, 8 draws and 10 losses following a 1-1 draw at Burnley in their last match before the league was halted due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. In the match against Burnley, Tottenham fell behind after just 13 minutes and the goal would hold up until Dele Alli equalized for Spurs five minutes after the half. Tottenham were outshot 21-13 in terms of goal attempts and 8-2 in terms of shots on goal, but neither side would find a game-winner the rest of the way, settling for a share of the spoils at full time. Harry Kane leads Tottenham in scoring with 11 goals while Heung-Min Son has 9 goals and a team-high 7 assists on the year.
Manchester United on the other hand, enter this match sitting in 5th place on 45 points with a record of 12 wins, 9 draws and 8 losses after a 2-0 win in the Manchester Derby against Manchester City in their last match before the break. In the win against Man City, Anthony Martial gave United the lead at the half hour mark and the lead would hold for much of the match before Man U put the game away thanks to a goal from Scott McTominay in the sixth minute of second half stoppage time. Marcus Rashford leads Man U in scoring with 14 goals while Anthony Martial has 11 goals and Daniel James has a team-high 6 assists this season. David De Gea is the top goalkeeper for Manchester United, conceding 0.93 goals per 90 minutes with 8 clean sheets in 29 league appearances this season.
United haven’t been all that great on their travels this year, but no fans in the stands kind of wipes away Tottenham’s home field advantage. With that said, both sides have had a chance to get key players healthy, with Tottenham getting captain and leading scorer Harry Kane back while United get Marcus Rashford back who leads their team in scoring as well. I do think both teams take a cautious approach to this match as to not aggravate anything and will take their opportunities as they come. I do think we see both teams get on the board here, so I’ll side with BTTS in this one.
