Spurs vs Man United Preview
United hasn’t lost in awhile, regardless of the 100 day break due to COVID-19 precautions. Manchester has won eight of its last 11, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team has also managed to draw the other three games, going an impressive 8-0-3 in that stretch.
The Spurs, however, have lost their last six matches, and manager Jose Mourinho will be more than a bit glad to have three of his best players back in the lineup.
Harry Kane is slated to return against Man United, as is Moussa Sissoko and Heung-min Son.
“Does he have 90 minutes, 80, 70, 60? I don’t know,” Mourinho said when he was asked about Kane’s status. “Only the game will tell us that. Is he in his top form? We don’t know. It is not a little training session. He’s had around six months without playing a football match. But he has worked extremely well, he is an amazing professional and is going to start tomorrow.”
Additional drama in this one could come as a result of history: Mourinho will also be taking on his former club — and despite any weird feelings that may accompany him throughout the match, he and his squad are ready to go. “It is a strange battle to fight but at the same time it is a great challenge and a great motivation,” he said this week. “I will try not to look at that points difference. That is why I cannot tell you exactly the difference in points we have to our opponents. We have to look to this incredible challenge in the way that every game we will try to win.”
The Spurs are eighth in the Premier League table, so they’ll really need to pull one out here. They lead Man United by a spot, as Solskjaer’s squad sits at ninth.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says his team has been preparing for their inevitable return despite the myriad uncertainties due to the coronavirus pandemic. “It’s a great game. A big game against one of the best teams in the league, Champions League finalists less than a year ago, a hard game. We prepared as well as we can, we’ve had a couple of in-house 11 v 11s and one 11 v 11 vs West Brom, which will hopefully stand us in good stead. We’re young, they look fit and ready, and we’ll see tomorrow night.”
