This is a big one. Tottenham Hotspur head up to Manchester to take on the Red Devils of United at Old Trafford. Spurs have have good luck recently at Old Trafford – they've won their past two against United on the road – but United are 11-1-2 this season at home and aren't likely to be a pushover.
However, should they win, Spurs are not only level with United on points but they'll also have blown the race for top four wide open. United are without the injured Robin van Persie, while Angel Di Maria and Jonny Evans are both suspended. Marcos Rojo is also a doubt due to a knock. Spurs, by contrast, are fully healthy, are coming off of eight days rest, and are riding two wins on the trot. A win will be difficult, but very much a possibility for Tottenham if they play well.

Match thread rules:
The match thread rules are the same always. To any visitors coming here for the first time, welcome! We're glad you're here! Wipe your feet, mind the gap, and be sure to check out the other pages at this outstanding site. While you're here, though, we have a few rules and regulations.
- Absolutely no links to illegal streams. They're bad and they get us in trouble.
- We have rules against "relentless negativity." Nobody likes a Negative Nancy, even when Rooney scores another brace on us. Don't knee-jerk and post outlandish or hurtful things just because you're frustrated.
- Along those lines, outright abuse of players or match officials is verboten. It's fine to say "wow, that's a bad call, match official," but it's NOT okay to direct copious amounts of abuse in the direction of said official over a call you did not like.
- Treat other people in the match thread the way you would want someone else to treat your grandmother. Be nice. Observe Wheaton's Law. This is a community of fans, not an un-moderated message board.
- Finally, while we don't have a rule against profanity, please try and keep the naughty words in check. Nobody loves a potty mouth. Also, language that is sexist, racist, or homophobic in nature will be swiftly deleted and you may lose posting privileges. This is an open, supportive community.
- Have fun, and COYS!
