Manchester United vs Tottenham live score, updates, highlights & lineups from crucial Premier League match

Sports

Saturday will see Manchester United host Tottenham in a match with significant implications at Old Trafford. Both teams are aiming to finish in the top four, and this six-pointer could determine just how successful the league season is for either side.

United head into the game off the back of a disappointing result. Their 4-1 defeat against Man City was a humbling affair, with their local rivals playing on a completely different level. Ralf Rangnick’s side haven’t won in their last three, and falling further behind in the race for top four could be catastrophic as they head into the business end of the league season.

That being said, Antonio Conte’s men are only in slightly better shape. While a 5-0 against Everton was a positive result, it probably said as much about Everton as it did about Spurs. Tottenham’s form has been inconsistent, as have their performances. Their win at Man City shows what they’re capable of, especially against teams that leave space in behind, but they’ve struggled to create in other games.

All things considered, this is a match where both teams will be desperate for a positive result. It could be a scrappy affair, decided by a moment of quality by a star on either of these sides.

Sporting News is following the match live and providing live score updates, commentary.
