Tottenham v Man United – Preview
Ange Postecoglou is the new man in the dugout for Tottenham having been appointed as manager on the 6th of June 2023 on a four-year contract. That made him the first Australian and first Greek to manage in the Premier League following considerable success with Celtic having won five trophies in two seasons with the club.
Tottenham had a chaotic season last year with three managers Antonio Conte (until the 26th of March), Cristian Stellini (acting, from 26 March to 24 April) then Ryan Mason finished out the season. The club would eventually end the season in 8th position in the league which is much lower than what Spurs fans have become accustomed to in recent years.
There’s been some change at Tottenham during the summer Transfer Window. First-teamers Lucas Moura and Harry Winks left the club and while it looks like Tottenham had kept the core of their squad from last season the transfer of Harry Kane to Bayern Munich on Saturday for £100,000,000 will create a considerable hole to fill in the squad in terms of goals and assists.
On a positive note, there have been some shrewd additions made also with James Maddison, M. van de Ven and Guglielmo Vicario all starting their first game of the season having joined in the summer.
Pre-season was a mixed bag for the club with two defeats, 2-3 against West Ham and 4-2 against Barcelona, along with two victories 1-5 against Lion City Sailors and 5-1 against Shakhtar Donetsk. A considerable point of interest could be the fact in those wins Kane scored 1 and 4 goals respectfully.
In their opening game of the season Tottenham drew 2-2 with Brentford. That was despite having 70% of possession but only creating an XG of 1.27 to Brentford’s 2.22 with that superiority in possession. However, the performance of Maddison was very encouraging as he assisted both of their goals from an XA of 0.95. The former Leicester star will be key for Spurs this season.
Manchester United’s Form
Erik ten Hag had a positive first season as Manchester United manager returning the club to the Champions League with a third-place Premier League finish. The Dutch manager also guided them to a trophy courtesy of the EFL Cup and that could’ve been two had they not lost to Man City 2-1 in the FA Cup final.
This is another important season though for the club and while they are unlikely to win a Premier League this season, they will need to be in the conversation longer than they were last year.
As ten Hag enters his second season at the helm in the Theatre of Dreams, the squad he inherited is finally starting to look like it is in the mould of a side that is in his name thanks in large part to a busy summer of incomings and outgoings.
Pre-season is more about fitness and learning than anything else. With that said, Man United had a decent one with four wins (including against Arsenal), three defeats (albeit against Wrexham it was a U23 side), a 0-2 loss against Real Madrid and 2-3 against Dortmund, a reserve side drew their final game 1-1 against Bilbao in Dublin.
In their Premier League opener against Wolves on Monday Night Football it was a mixed bag from their new signings. André Onana was excellent in nets and the difference between himself and De Gea can be seen by all already.
The midfield looked incredibly disjointed, and Mason Mount was anonymous, they will persist with the three of Casemiro, Fernandes and Mount at the weekend but a repeat performance could see them overrun by Tottenham again.
Up-front the club were toothless going forward lacking any real quality while injured big-money signing Rasmus Højlund could only watch on for now.

Tottenham vs Manchester United Prediction & Best Bet
Prediction: Tottenham 1-2 Manchester United
Tottenham earned a decent 2-2 away point in their first game of the season against a difficult Brentford side with James Maddison shining.
Manchester United commenced their season with an unconvincing, disjointed 1-0 victory against Wolves and will need to be a lot sharper to win this one, but I think they will do it narrowly.
Best Bet: Jadon Sancho Anytime Goalscorer @ 11/4
