Manchester United host Tottenham in crucial encounter in race for top-four - get Premier League fantasy tips
Manchester United (MUN) host Antonio Conte’s Tottenham Hotspur (TOT) in Gameweek 29 of the Premier League 2021-22 season at Old Trafford on Saturday, March 12. The match will kick off at 11:00 PM IST.
MUN vs TOT Dream11 prediction
Historically, Manchester United have enjoyed an upper hand against Tottenham, winning an impressive 37 of their 59 Premier League games.
However, the last time these two teams played at Old Trafford, Tottenham ran riot, capitalizing on Anthony Martial’s red card to beat the Red Devils 6-1.
As far as recent form is concerned, both teams have struggled for consistency although Tottenham have managed to win crucial games. United, on the other hand, have dropped unnecessary points which might push them out of the top four race in the weeks to come. Come Saturday, we expect a draw between the teams with not much to separate the sides.
MUN vs TOT Dream11 team tips for Premier League 2021-22
Top tip: Best forward
Between Son Heung-Min and Harry Kane, the South Korean international remains our preferred choice considering his previous record against Manchester United. The 29-year-old scored twice during the 6-1 rout at Old Trafford last season and was on the scoresheet once again in April 2021. Given his return of 893 fantasy points this season, he remains an outright pick for this fixture.
Top tip: Best midfielder
Bruno Fernandes did struggle against Manchester City last time out, but his record against Tottenham has been excellent, to say the least. The Portuguese has scored twice and has assisted one in his last four league meetings with Tottenham. If United are to do anything positive, Fernandes will have to be at his best.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
Tottenham full-back Sergio Reguilon marked his return in some style, scoring a goal against Everton in a 5-0 win. Given how fragile United’s defence has been of late, the Spain international will be a big threat on the wings while bombing forward in attack.
As for a keeper, Hugo Lloris should be picked ahead of Manchester United’s David De Gea as the Frenchman is more likely to keep a clean sheet. Lloris has a more reliable defence in front of him and can get points through his shot-stopping ability which is bound to be tested on Saturday.
MUN vs TOT probable playing XI
MUN playing XI (probable): David De Gea (goalkeeper); Diogo Dalot, Raphael Varane, Harry Maguire (captain), Luke Shaw; Scott McTominay, Paul Pogba; Marcus Rashford, Bruno Fernandes, Jadon Sancho; Cristiano Ronaldo
TOT playing XI (probable): Hugo Lloris (captain and goalkeeper); Cristian Romero, Eric Dier, Ben Davies; Matt Doherty, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Rodrigo Bentancur, Sergio Reguilon; Dejan Kulusevski, Harry Kane, Son Heung-Min
