Reason for Manchester United v Tottenham Bbets

Home advantage has been decisive in this fixture in recent seasons – it has decided each of the last four encounters.

The North London’s side’s record at Old Trafford is generally poor and United have not lost at home in any competition since September 2016. They are favourites for this due to having home advantage and whilst they are not in form, they are in a stronger position to take full points.

In the last six meetings between these two sides, on only one occasion have both teams scored and the last two clashes at Old Trafford have been settled by a single goal.

These two have conceded only ten goals combined in 18 league outings and have two of the strongest three defensive records in the division.

United have ten clean sheets from their last 19 matches and are yet to concede a league goal at Old Trafford in six outings, with another low-scoring affair expected in this tussle.
