Manchester united are unbeaten in their last eight games in all competitions to be fair after registering a heavy win against Yeovil.

Despite the eight times unbeaten run the red devils have dropped too many needless points this season and they haven’t really showed up their mighty against top teams in the league.

On the other hand, Spurs have only picked up three points in their five games against Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Man city and Man United (W1 D0 L4), fewer than any other top six side in the top tier league.

They will be hoping to beat the red devils three consecutive times at home, when they meet on January 31 at Wembly.

Great Form

Both teams were locked level on points heading into the clash at Old Trafford at the end of October, when a tight game in the driving rain was decided by substitute Anthony Martial’s late finish.

Manchester United are in great form at the moment after securing a 4-0 win against Yeovil in their FA Cup tie. The win propelled the Red Devils to five wins on the bounce bringing to an end the worrying spell of draws.

This recent success has taken them back to 2nd place in the Premier League, with a three point lead over 3rd placed Chelsea but 12 point deficit on the incredible Manchester City.

Alexis Sanchez

They will be hoping the arrival of Alexis Sanchez can start to narrow the gap though as he could make his league debut for Man United in this game.

After an impressive show against Yeovil, United’s new no.7 Alex Sanchez will be looking forward to build on his positive debut on a ground where he has a good record.

Sanchez has scored seven goals at Wembley including on his last appearance in Arsenal's FA Cup final victory over Chelsea last May.

Martial

Martial on the other end has scored in three consecutive premier league games for the first time and the arrival of Alexis might pile more pressure.

Kane who is the main man in the Spurs squad after a disappointing season by Dele Alli is just a goal shy of his 100 th premier league goal, where those who have achieved this have done so against Manchester United.

Tottenham have scored in each of their last 16 competitive games and have only failed to score in three of their home Premier League games this season, although they have conceded in seven of these 12 games. The visitors have conceded in six of their last eight on the road too, so we’re backing that alongside a 2-2 correct score predictions.

Historically

Historically, United have a strong record against the north London club, registering 88 wins and 49 draws in 187 previous meetings in all competitions stretching back as far as 1899.

In more recent times, United have won 33 of the teams’ 51 Premier League encounters, with Spurs managing just seven wins and there have been 11 draws.

Manchester United have won four, drawn one, and lost two of their last seven meetings with Tottenham.

Andre Marriner will be in the middle for Wednesday’s game.

Our prediction

Both team to score and over 2.5 (2.15)
