Manchester United v Tottenham Premier League – match preview and betting tips

Premier League bettingWhat a game to be played today at Old Trafford 12:45 BST. Last week the two combatants both secured a win to create excitement in Premier League. United secured an away win over rivals from Manchester City with a late goal more than 2 minutes into overtime. This maintained the pressure on Chelsea and at the same time it would give Tottenham the important 4th place in Premier league if they could beat current number one Chelsea. That was exactly what Tottenham did in their 2-1 victory at home putting them two vital points ahead of Manchester City in the quest for Champions League participation.

Important for both teams

The match today is equally important for both teams. United because they need to win to remain title aspirants and Tottenham will fight for points to keep their league standing. United will have Rio Ferdinand and Wes Brown back in the squad for today’s match and having conceded only 27 goals during the season (11 at home) Tottenham will face difficulties scoring against United today.

Manchester United currently 1 point behind Chelsea in their quest for a fourth consecutive Premier League title. With three matches to go the championship title is still up for grabs since Chelsea has a very difficult away match versus Liverpool Sunday May 2 and could lose points in that game. Should Manchester win their 3 remaining games, which besides the home game versus Tottenham today, are an away game versus Sunderland next Sunday and a home game versus Stoke in the last round of the Premier League taking place Sunday May 9 then chances are that United once again will be crowned champions. Winning the match today is crucial and Ferguson will attack from the moment the whistle blow at Old Trafford. We can expect to see Manchester United dominating this game in both halves.
From a betting perspective and regardless of the desire Tottenham will have to get away from Old Trafford with points then anything but a secure Manchester United win will be a major upset. Yes Tottenham have performed incredible well lately but this is not the right time to visit Fergusons squad who has an enormous expertise in winning crucial games.
