MUN vs TOT Dream11: Manchester United face former manager Jose Mourinho and Tottenham Hotspur in the midweek action in the Premier League at Old Trafford. United are without a win in two games, while Tottenham have made an all-conquering start under Mourinho and will definitely go into the match high on confidence.
Manchester United: Certainly bad enough to question Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s future again and for the umpteenth time. As disastrous as it could be for the Red Devils at this stage in the season, but the Champions League hopes hinges on the thinnest of ropes for United, and the situation is so grave that a couple of defeat would create so much gap between them and the top-four, that it would become almost impossible for United to make up even with a good run.
United were once again a disappointment at home and threw away more points following a 2-2 draw against Aston Villa at the weekend. It was United’s 2nd consecutive draw and the third game in four where they dropped points.
Manchester United at home this season: (6th best)
Goals for: 13
Goals against: 07
Tottenham Hotspur, on the other hand, are already enjoying the life under Jose Mourinho. Spurs are 100% under him and will look to keep the momentum going with a win at Old Trafford. There will be no dearth of motivation for Spurs here as a win will take Mourinho’s men into the top-five and within three points off Chelsea in fourth place. That’s staggering because Spurs were 12 points behind Chelsea at one stage and to come so close now, shows how a couple of wins can change the scenario for a team.
Tottenham Hotspur on the road this season: (13th best)

Manchester United team news: Paul Pogba, Eric Bailly, Timothy Fosu-Mensah and Marcus Rojo remain on the sideline for the Red Devils.
In addition, Solskjaer has labelled Scott McTominay and Nemanja Matic as “touch and go”, and so remain doubtful for the home clash against Tottenham Hotspur.
McTominay is nursing an ankle injury and missed the last three games, while Matic is out of the squad due to unspecified reasons.
Tottenham Hotspur team news: Spurs, meanwhile, remain without their first-choice goalkeeper Hugo Lloris (elbow), who is expected to return next year, as well as Michel Vorm (calf), Erik Lamela (hamstring) and Ben Davies (ankle).

Tottenham have the momentum, but United hardly lose at Old Trafford, no matter what form they carry into the home games. United not to lose.
