Man Utd v Tottenham - AUSSIE SOCCER BETTING TIPS
Man Utd v Tottenham Betting Offers and Tips
Jose Mourinho was a very unhappy man on Saturday afternoon. He could only watch on in horror as his Man Utd team turned in a terrible performance in their shock 2-1 defeat against Huddersfield.
The Portuguese manager criticised his players afterward claiming that their levels were below those he’d expect even from a friendly game and that Huddersfield’s superior effort meant they were full value for the win.
Mourinho must hope that public dressing down of his players will prompt a response for the visit of Tottenham on Saturday.
By making light work of Liverpool, Spurs showed that they are once again a team to be taken seriously in the title race. Mauricio Pochettino’s men are full of confidence so will believe they can end a run of three straight defeats at Old Trafford.
The Man Utd players were not the only ones to come in for criticism this weekend. Some United fans believed that Mourinho’s overly defensive tactics against Liverpool a fortnight ago sapped the momentum that the team had built earlier on in the season and that the manager must take his fair share of the blame.
There is an expectation that Man Utd will play attacking football (especially at Old Trafford) and those who turn up to the ‘Theatre of Dreams’ on Saturday will be expecting the home side to be on the front foot.
Unfortunately, they may be disappointed.
Mourinho takes real pleasure in stopping his opponents and he’ll know as well as anybody just how dangerous this Tottenham team are. They’ve got Harry Kane scoring goals for fun, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen are dangerous from deeper positions and their pace on the counterattack is frightening.
With Mourinho unconfident about opening up against the Premier League’s best teams, we’re expecting a tight game that will end up in a draw at $3.40 with Sportsbet.
Defences to be on Top but Don’t Rule Out Chances
Mauricio Pochettino doesn’t have the same reputation for favouring defensive football as his opponent on Saturday does but there is no question that the Argentine is very capable of organising his defence.
Only two teams have conceded fewer goals than Spurs after nine Premier League games which only strengthens our belief that the defences will be on top.
That said, there is too much attacking quality in both teams to believe that the game will pass without any chances. Therefore, a bet on the 1-1 correct score could pay off at $7 with Bet365.
If there are goals in the game, they’re more likely to come in the second half than the first. More than half of Man Utd’s goals this season have come in the second 45 minutes while Spurs have let in most of their goals in the second half.
Kane to Triumph Against Golden Boot Rival Again
In the closing stages of last season, Harry Kane and Romelu Lukaku were locked in a battle to win the Premier League’s Golden Boot. Kane eventually came out on top and his two goals against Liverpool made him the league’s top marksmen in the current season.
At 24, both Lukaku and Kane could be scoring goals at the top level for many seasons to come but right now, you’d have to say that Kane has more to his game than Lukaku.
The England striker is a man for the big occasions, something he can prove by scoring first at Old Trafford at $4.90 with Unibet.
