Manchester United is out for revenge and aims to maintain its strong hold on the No. 2 spot when it faces Tottenham in an English Premier League clash on Sunday. Manchester United suffered a humiliating 6-1 defeat to Spurs in October after a first-half red card left the Red Devils short-handed. Manchester United has asserted itself as the league's second-best team, and while it has little hope of catching Manchester City, it has not lost in its last 10 matches. Tottenham is sixth in the table but is just five points out of the fourth spot.
Kickoff is set for 11:30 a.m. ET at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. The latest Manchester United vs. Tottenham odds from William Hill Sportsbook list United as the 0.5-goal and +150 money-line favorite, and the over-under for total goals scored is 2.5.

Why you should back Manchester United
The Red Devils (17-9-4, 60 points) were furious after Anthony Martial was sent off for a minor retaliation to taking an elbow in the last meeting between these two teams. They will be out for revenge, and keeping Tottenham out of the top four will be icing on the cake. Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford have been running roughshod over opponents, with Fernandes ranking third in the league with 16 goals and second with nine assists. The Portuguese midfielder scored the only goal in the October loss and also tallied in a 2-0 win against Granada in the Europa League on Thursday.
Rashford is rapidly becoming the world-class finisher he was expected to be, and the 23-year-old has scored 10 goals while adding seven assists. Manchester United has recorded a clean sheet in six of its last eight EPL games, including matches with top teams like Manchester City and Chelsea. The defense is headlined by Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw and Aaron Wan-Bissaka, and goalkeepers Dean Henderson and David de Gea have combined for 12 clean sheets.
Why you should back Tottenham
Spurs (14-7-9, 49 points) will be desperate to stay in the race for a Champions League spot, and they definitely have the quality up front to cause issues for United. It starts with league scoring leader Harry Kane, who has 19 goals and 13 assists to lead both categories. He scored twice in the October clash against the Red Devils, and Son Heung-Min also tallied twice. The South Korean has nine goals and ranks fifth in the EPL with nine assists. Spurs have scored 51 goals this season, tied for fourth-most in the league, 19 more than they have yielded.
Manager Jose Mourinho has had a week to draw up a game plan to beat his former team, and he will have his players motivated to break their dry spell. Spurs aren't taking a ton of shots, but they are putting them on target, ranking third in the league with 38.2 percent on the mark.
