Manchester United v Tottenham, 28 October 2017. Betting tips, odds & prediction for EPL match

Coming back to defensive tactics against Liverpool in matchday 8 ended with a scoreless bore draw for Manchester United. It was an unpleasant way for Jose Mourinho to show his confidence in EPL title winning. At the moment the Special one doesn’t have the intention to change his tactics even at Old Trafford against Tottenham. The Spurs are on a positive mood and can stop the negative trend at Manchester that is counting three defeats with no goals scored.

Betting Tip: Tottenham hadn’t lost any points in away soil matches in season 2017/2018 in EPL

Tottenham had ended his League Cup path at this midweek. The Spurs allowed West Ham to make a great come back at Wembley after leading 2-0 by the half time. The question is opened: did Mauricio Pochettino ask to lose the game to make team’s schedule free or Tottenham relaxed too early? In either case both teams have the Champions League matches at the next midweek and have to think about them too. Manchester United has an advantage over Tottenham as the Red Devils are for 99% through to the next CL round while the Spurs have a vital Real Madrid encounter.

Betting Tip: Manchester United has a 100% home record this season without conceding even a goal

The Red Devils after a drab draw at Anfield visited Huddersfield Town with the aim to get an easy victory and continue title contention with Manchester City. But suddenly for Jose Mourinho’s men the home side showed an irrepressible opposing. Arrogant Devils were beaten 2-1 for the first time at the current EPL term. The Special one was frustrated at the press conference after the match but refrained from the accusations for his footballers. At the League Cup midweek Manchester United was irreproachable with a 0-2 victory over Swansea.

Betting Tip: Tottenham can’t get even a point at Old Trafford in three last visiting with scoring no goals in these matches

There are several key missing players for both teams. Manchester United is still without the central midfielders’ pair Marouane Fellaini and Paul Pogba. Tottenham can’t use Victor Wanyama at 28 of October in Red Devils encounter. But the main question is the health of Harry Kane, the best player in EPL in September. The Spurs’ forward got a slight injury in matchday 10 and could miss Old Trafford visit.

Bookmakers think Manchester United to be a slight favourite for the upcoming Tottenham Hotspur clash. WilliamHill presents the following odd for Manchester United v Tottenham encounter at 28 of October 2017:

 Manchester United wins                 Draw                 Tottenham Hotspurs wins

If Jose Mourinho won’t refuse his defensive tactical view in matches against top-6 sides we will see another dull game at Old Trafford. Tottenham is not going to catalyze the attacking manner of football at the away soil. Both teams will be waiting for opposite mistakes and there are no premises they would happen. The right choice for betting in this match is Total Under 2.5. Wikibet’s prediction for Manchester United v Tottenham clash is a low-scoring game. Especially if Harry Kane would miss Red Devils encounter.
