Manchester United take on Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League this weekend. Here’s absolutely everything you need to know about the fixture.
Erik ten Hag‘s first away trip of the season is a very difficult one, as they travel to London to face Tottenham Hotspur. United did emerge victorious in their opener, but it was a somewhat lacklustre performance from the Red Devils.
Tottenham is a different challenge altogether – they possess some world-class players. However, one of the usual suspects for Spurs won’t be featuring, with long-term United target Harry Kane making the switch over to Bayern Munich in the past week.
Who will come out on top? You’re not going to want to miss this.

It’s still early, but the Wolves fixture can give us a good indication of the team ten Hag will field.
Ten Hag evidently has his strongest 11, but some poor performances could mean a few names are potentially dropped. Mason Mount didn’t particularly have a great first Premier League outing for the Red Devils – but we think he’ll keep his place.
One player that will likely be subbed out is Alejandro Garnacho. The young Argentine looked really sloppy on Monday, which leads us to believe Jadon Sancho will get the nod against Spurs
Manchester United Injuries
The following players will most likely not feature. They’re all still spending time in the medical tent.
Who is the referee for Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester United?
The referee for the fixture will be Michael Oliver.
A lot will be intrigued to know this given the controversial penalty incident against Wolves in the season opener, which has got a lot of people talking again about VAR.
The first away fixture of the season for the Red Devils will be a tough one. Ten Hag will have had severe words after the Wolves game. They need to step up a level.
We’re optimistic they’ll do just that. United should nick this one.
