Tottenham: Just one win in their last three, Spurs find themselves needing to accumulate points right now if they have any hope of making the top four. It looks like a long shot, especially after dropping points at Newcastle last time out. They will need to be smart in the middle of the pitch and apply pressure to Bruno Fernandes, preventing him from having space with the ball at his feet. In attack, Tottenham are likely to face a full-strength defense as several key members of United's backline are suspended for their Europa League match on Thursday. So, that means they'll likely get significant minutes here.

Man. United: Three wins in a row and with a chance to pull within 11 points of first-place Manchester City, United are confident and healthy entering this one. While they are likely out of the title race, this is all about getting closer to locking up a spot in the top four. United could potentially have an 11-point cushion of their own with three points. Expect United to get their chances, especially down the wing. Tottenham will apply pressure, and the ability to play to their speed, like how they did on Thursday against Granada, could be the key here to another victory.
