Struggling Manchester United host a high-flying Tottenham Hotspur side in the Premier League 2022-23 fixture on October 20 at the Old Trafford, Manchester. The match is scheduled to start at 12:45 AM IST.
Manchester United’s three-game winning run ended with a goalless draw against Newcastle United in the previous match of EPL 2022-23.
The Red Devils have accumulated 16 points from their opening nine games, winning five, losing three and drawing one. They have scored just 13 goals in the process, which is currently the second lowest among the top 10 teams.
On the other hand, Tottenham Hotspur are looking like a completely rejuvenated team under Antonio Conte. Following a 2-0 win over Everton last weekend, they have now endured their best start to an English top-flight season since the 1963-64 campaign.
The Spurs have collected 23 points from 10 games, with seven wins, two stalemates and a solitary defeat. They sit third in the points table, four points behind leaders Arsenal and level on points with second-placed Manchester City.
Manchester United vs Tottenham Hotspur head-to-head in Premier League
Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur have faced each other on 60 occasions since the inception of the English Premier League, with Manchester United winning 38 of them. Spurs have won 10 while 12 have ended in draws.
Barring a 6-1 humiliation in October 2020, the Erik ten Hag-led side has been dominant in the past contests. They have won the last three encounters, scoring three each time out.
However, given the two teams’ recent form, it's Tottenham Hotspur who are favourites to win this match-up. Spurs’ attacker Harry Kane has been in scintillating form this season, scoring nine goals. The Englishman has found the back of the net in each of his last five games in the Premier League.
