Manchester United play hosts to Tottenham Hotspur tomorrow at Old Trafford in this round’s most exciting fixture.
While Spurs have not performed particularly well at White Hart this campaign, they have been more than solid away from home with a perfect record of four wins out of four games and 12 goals against just two.
But Mauricio Pochettino’s potent front-line face a formidably defensive-minded Manchester United tomorrow as they are yet to concede a single goal at Old Trafford so far.
Manchester United team news
Mourinho will not be happy about his available options. The Red Devils are in the midst of an injury crisis which has crippled their midfield with Michael Carrick, Paul Pogba, Marouane Fellaini and Ander Herrera all out on the sidelines.
The defence is a bit shaken but not stirred with Eric Baily unavailable while Marcos Rojo will leave Mourinho with a late decision. Phil Jones returns to full fitness.
Marcus Rashford is also doubtful due to a hamstring pull.
Predicted Line-up: De Gea, Smalling, Jones, Valencia, Darmian, Blind, Matic, Young, Mikhtarian, Martial, Lukaku
Tottenham Hotspur team news
Spurs have been hit hard by Harry Kane’s hamstring problem sustained against Liverpool on Sunday. The 24-year-old England international has bagged 13 goals this season and looks to be losing the battle to get match-ready for this Old Trafford clash.
The return of Mousa Dembele will, however, provide a substantial midfield boost for Spurs. Danny Rose could also return following lengthy spell on the sidelines.
Predicted Line-up: Lloris, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Trippier, Dembele, Dier, Davies, Eriksen, Dele Ali, Llorente
