This Wednesday’s duel at Old Trafford looks unmissable.
Manchester United and Tottenham will meet at Old Trafford in situations that the opponent knows well; the ‘Red Devils’ have stopped fighting for the Premier League and focused their energy on reaching the Champions League zone, while the ‘Spurs’ occupy the first place and dream of the title.
United looks at the general table and is excited about Europe; the fourth place is three points away, but it does not depend on itself to reach it; it belongs to Chelsea, which is going little by little with Graham Potter, the ‘Red Devils’ are going for behind in the race and beating Tottenham would renew hopes.
It is a direct game between the two, a match with history and tradition in English football; the season has a long way to go. However, the result of this Wednesday may be definitive in the end; the London team is in third place and will have to defend it; there are many days ahead, and the ‘Spurs’ could stumble at any time.
If the course continues as it has been up to now, Tottenham and United could fight to be among the top four in the last days, hence the need to win this Wednesday and the importance of the three points because they would keep both close to their goals, but only one will achieve victory.
