Tottenham and Manchester United are set to face off in a crucial match for the Premier League’s top four. Spurs will be looking to close the gap on United by claiming a home victory, despite their recent struggles.
Their confidence was dealt a heavy blow in their 6-1 loss to Newcastle, leaving them with a lot of ground to make up. Meanwhile, United secured a spot in the FA Cup final after an unconvincing display against Brighton.
Despite some promising signs this season, United’s Champions League qualification is far from secure, making this match even more significant. The game is set to take place at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London on April 27th, 2023, with an 8:15 pm BST kick-off time.
Spurs may be without their goalkeeper, Hugo Lloris, who is a doubt after coming off at halftime against Newcastle. Clement Lenglet and Ben Davies will also be assessed ahead of the game.
Interim manager Ryan Mason is likely to return to a three-man backline, which Spurs had previously adopted. This could mean the return of Davison Sanchez to the team.
United will be without Bruno Fernandes, who is a doubt after being spotted wearing a protective boot earlier this week. Raphael Varane has also been confirmed as not ready to return by their manager, Erik ten Hag.
Both teams will be looking for a crucial win in what promises to be an intense and exciting match.
