Manchester United put forward a solid performance during the week to take the upper hand in their Europa League contest against Granada. Goals from Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes were enough for the victory, sustaining the momentum from their Premier League comeback win over Brighton and Hove Albion. The Red Devils can put distance between themselves and the chasing pack for a top-four place with a win this afternoon, and placing a huge dent in Spurs’ hopes in the process.
Results elsewhere this weekend have not gone in favour of Tottenham, putting pressure on Jose Mourinho’s men to respond. On their return to Premier League action last week, Harry Kane’s brace had put them on course to defeat Newcastle, but Joe Willock’s late strike denied Spurs the victory on the road. The North London outfit now need to find a victory against United, who have been strong on the road this term.
Good afternoon and welcome to the live commentary of the Premier League clash between Tottenham and Manchester United at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
