United take a trip to the manager Circus

Manchester-United-v-NewcastleRealistically Tottenham have become a team with the same manager merry-go-round as Real Madrid, but with the London side it’s been more like aiming for Kate Upton covered in chocolate but ending up with Kerry Katona and a half empty bottle of curry sauce. This preview is written with Mauricio Pochettino currently at the helm, but keeping in mind this could change by Sunday.

So when United face Neil Warnock’s side on Sunday they will be coming up against a team with a leaky defence, questionable performances but the ability to grind out results. Sounds familiar.

United have continued their fine form, victory against Newcastle was a marked improvement to the away game at Aston Villa before Christmas and has only increased the whispers of a title challenge. So when they go to White Hart Lane to face Tony Pullis’ side confidence should still be high.

Manchester United Team News

United successfully got through the last fixture against Newcastle without sustaining any injuries or suspensions. This was largely helped by the game becoming an exhibition match so Van Gaal will hopefully have close to a fully fit team.

Unfortunately the team has stood firm with its policy of training amongst landmines in Syria so Angel Di Maria has been added to the injury list with a problem with his pelvis. Adnan Januzaj and Marouane Fellaini could return after suffering what LVG described as “Belgian sickness”, Luke Shaw has also recovered from an ankle injury.

Spurs Team News

Edith Piaf’s Spurs will be fielding close to a fully fit 11 as Hugo Lloris will not miss out despite suffering a cut to his mouth in the previous fixture against Leicester and Ryan Mason could return to the first team.

Key men

The man of the moment remains Wayne Rooney. Despite facing serious criticism after being appointed captain at the beginning of the season the born again Scouser has become an outstanding part of the United team. Thriving in his new role in midfield, his goals and creativity have been nothing short of brilliant.

Not many would have thought it but a player that has totally redeemed himself this season without a doubt is Ashley Young. In his new role as a wingback he has found a new identity. Competent in attack and defence the England man has provided brilliant service from the left that more often than not has resulted in goals.
