Super Sunday: Tottenham, Manchester United Set For Wembley Showdown
Tottenham are out to prove that they are title contenders and not pretenders as they are often labeled and for Manchester United, they are ready to show the world their good form under caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is not a fluke.
That two scenarios is enough to wet ones’ appetite that Wembley will be bubbling for the Super Sunday clash between Spurs and the Red Devils.
Sunday’s showdown at Wembley will serve as a litmus test for both Tottenham and Man United, as well as their respective managers.
Solskjaer will put his unblemished record as United boss on the line against Mauricio Pochettino, who might just replace him at Old Trafford in the summer.
With all due respect to the likes of Cardiff City and Huddersfield Town, third-place Spurs will pose a challenge Solskjaer’s side has not yet seen since Jose Mourinho was fired following a humbling defeat to Liverpool last month.
United didn’t fare so well the first time these sides met this season, as the Red Devils suffered a thoroughly embarrassing 3-0 defeat that home in August.
While Solskjaer has restored the attacking intent at United, he will be without a number of key defensive figures on Sunday, with Chris Smalling, Marcos Rojo, Eric Bailly, Antonio Valencia and Matteo Darmian all reportedly unavailable or left out of the squad.
Along the same lines, Spurs are enjoying their best run of results all season, despite experiencing a rash of injuries — particularly to the midfield, where Harry Winks and Moussa Sissoko have, somehow, become an irreplaceable duo.
Son Heung-min, who has amassed seven goals and five assists in his last seven games (all competitions), will play on Sunday before departing to join up with South Korea at the Asian Cup.
It was agreed between the two side that Son remain with his club until after the game against United, missing the first two group games in the process.
We should expect goals at Wembley but who will carry the day is a tough call outrightly..
