Manchester United entertain Tottenham on Sunday as the hosts look to get back to winning ways in the Premier League at Old Trafford.

In all four of those games, United did enough to win the contest, and the same can be said of their efforts at Everton last weekend, where they once again conceded late to only draw 1-1 at Goodison Park.

Spurs have lost just once in the Premier League this season – 2-1 at Chelsea – and currently find themselves a place and seven points better off than the Red Devils in the table, having won seven and drawn six of their first 14 games.
