Tottenham vs Man. United
Tottenham will have to do without some of their key attackers in this game. Son Heung-Min is away on international duty (Asian Cup), Lamela is injured, while Lucas Moura is reportedly having a problem with his knee.
On the bright side, Tottenham have Harry Kane! And he's been in a goal-scoring mood lately. This guy has scored in every of the previous 6 matches in all competitions.
The good form of Harry Kane is just one of many reasons why I think Tottenham will be able to score a couple of goals on Sunday. Actually, the main reason why I believe we'll see a few goals in Man United's net is that the Red Devils have some big problems at the back.
Rojo is out due to an injury, Bailly is suspended, and Smalling has just returned from an injury. this means that Solskjaer has limited options for the positions of central defenders. Lindelof and Jones are the only central-backs left in the first team.
Because of that, I think Man United won't try to win points by defending. They will try to outscore the opponent. And that's the style of football they've been playing since Mourinho has left the club. In 5 matches with Solskjaer in charge, Manchester United have scored a total of 16 goals.
