Tottenham Hotspur head to northern England today to take on Manchester United at Old Trafford. It’s never easy at the Theater of Dreams and today should be no different even with the start to the season Spurs have enjoyed.
Spurs currently sit in third place on 23 points, level with City but behind on goal differential. United have had a bumpy start to the season, but have recovered and sit fifth on 16 points. They played Newcastle United to a 0-0 draw over the weekend and didn’t look to have many ideas in attack. That being said, the last time Spurs made this trip, Cristiano Ronaldo decided to roll back the clock and hang a hat trick. It’s just that kind of fixture where weird things happen. Former Spurs midfielder Christian Eriksen is a doubt ahead of this match and Anthony Martial will not be available for selection. As for Spurs, Dejan Kulusevski is getting there but don’t expect him to be an option. The same goes for Richarlison, which means we may see the 3-5-2 sooner rather than later.
Spurs can make a pretty big statement with a win today, which would move them into second place since the tie between Arsenal and Manchester City was postponed, so let’s do exactly that and jump the Cityzens.

The match thread rules are the same as 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. Violators will be warned or banned.
We have rules against “relentless negativity.” Nobody likes a Negative Nancy. 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 also not allowed. It’s fine to say “wow, that was a really bad call,” 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. 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. Also, language that is sexist, racist, transphobic, or homophobic in nature will be swiftly deleted and you will be immediately banned. This is an open, supportive community.
