Manchester United vs Tottenham - Betting Tips and Predictions

Share

United's FA Cup victory in 1990 laid the foundation for two decades of sustained success under Alex Ferguson while City's FA Cup win in 2011 ended a 35-year trophy drought and paved the way for the Premier League title the following year.

There are still four games to play in the Premier League for Manchester United, but the title has already been snapped up by Manchester City, and Jose Mourinho believes that his side have paid the price for their inconsistencies through the season.

Shaw was given a rare start as Manchester United beat Bournemouth on Wednesday.

The Premier League title may have been won by Manchester City but there are several other issues still to be resolved in the top flight.

We expect both sides to score, and we are going for a 2-1 win for the North London side. A bright start to the Premier League is starting to look like it might end with them finishing fourth and having a tricky play-off to contend with in August. Drawn into a group containing Real Madrid who are two-time defending champions and favorites to win again, Borussia Dortmund, and Apoel Nicosia, many predicted Tottenham wouldn't qualify for the next round. They were really strong.

Everton boss Sam Allardyce jokingly awarded himself a rating of 11 out of 10 after Toffees fans were sent a survey asking how they felt the former England manager was managing at Goodison Park. You just need that belief you can do it and then they will come.

Pochettino maintains that this will not be an advantage for his side.

'Even when they were nearly losing points they managed to win against Bournemouth in minute 145 and some other matches where they won in 90-something minutes.

"But this performance was a very similar level". They topped a group of death in the Champions League and really should have qualified to the quarterfinals.

There were no new injury concerns to arise from the win on the South Coast, with only Sergio Romero expected to miss out due to an injury sustained on worldwide duty with Argentina last month.

"They must have great respect for this badge, they don't have to play for the coach". That is going to put you in a different level. With the days of club loyalty largely gone with the exception of a few, it seems likely players will leave if trophies don't come.

However, Pochettino played down the importance of winning the FA Cup in Tottenham's bid to establish themselves among Europe's elite.

But speaking ahead of the FA Cup semifinal with Tottenham at Wembley on Saturday, the 55-year-old said United could have their work cut out.
