PREDICTION
Tottenham now embark on what could be a season defining set of fixtures, as they have three huge Premier League matches in the space of 10 days. The first of those sees them play host to Manchester United and defeat will further lessen their chances of a top four finish. Jose Mourinho’s men come here off the back of three successive league wins, and they also now have Alexis Sanchez ready to be unleashed in the league and with his former Arsenal ties there will be no warm reception for him at Wembley. There is little to split the two sides and that may well be reflected in the result.

MEMORABLE MEETING
The last time that Tottenham played Manchester United in North London was also the last ever game to be played at White Hart Lane in its previous guise. Thankfully for Spurs fans, the stadium was given the perfect send off as Mauricio Pochettino’s men ended this particular era for the club with a 2-1 win.
