A crucial battle between the traditional ‘top 6’ in the Premier League takes place on Sunday, with Manchester United facing off against Tottenham Hotspur. Spurs come off with a 1-1 draw against Newcastle, with a penalty from Callum Wilson in the dying moments of the game denying them the 3 points. They sit 7th in the table after losing to 1-0 Everton, from a Dominic Calvert-Lewin goal and beating Southampton 5-2 with a quadruple from Heung-Min Son. Manchester United meanwhile sit in 14th place after playing two games in the league, losing 3-1 to Crystal Palace and sneaking a 3-2 win against Brighton with a goal after full-time for Bruno Fernandes. The last time these two sides faced off was in the 2019/20 Premier League season, where they drew 1-1 in June, where Steven Bergwijn and Fernandes took a goal each and Manchester United won 2-1 in December 2019, where Marcus Rashford scored a brace and Dele Alli scored for the Spurs. This tactical analysis will look at how both Ole Gunnar Solskjær and José Mourinho might set up and the tactics that they might employ in this game. This analysis will also look at both sides’ previous games and where they should learn from there.
