United and Spurs set for top four showdown

Saturday evening sees Spurs take the trip to Old Trafford to take on Ralf Ragnick's Manchester United side who are licking their wounds after losing 4-1 in the Manchester derby at the hands of their city rivals.

Red Devils in need of some confidence

After their trouncing at the hands of Man City, United fell out of the top four at the expense of an in-form Arsenal. They need to start turning things around soon.

Last three results:

Atletico Madrid 1-1 Manchester United (23.02.22)

Manchester United 0-0 Watford (26.02.22)

Manchester City 4-1 Manchester United (06.03.22)

The frustration displayed post-match from Scott McTominay in his interview was evident. This clear frustration is partly the reason for my take for him to be booked come Saturday.

He averages the most tackles of any Man United midfielder at 1.25 per game, as well as the second most amount of fouls per game at 1.71, just behind Paul Pogba.

McTominay has also racked up eight yellow cards in his 24 games for United this season, giving him the most cautions in the side. His bullish nature in midfield is something that will continue come Saturday.

Tottenham showing signs of a resurgence

Antonio Conte's men took no prisoners in their 5-0 domination of struggling Everton, with Kane and co looking back to their best

Last three results:

Leeds United 0-4 Spurs (26.02.22)

Middlesbrough 1-0 Spurs (01.03.22)

Spurs 5-0 Everton (07.03.22)

If their recent performances are anything to go by, Spurs will be looking to take the game right to United on their home turf and take advantage of the hosts' poor form.

With Kane back firing on all cylinders, and seemingly with a very creative set of support around him, Spurs could do even more damage to United's top four hopes while boosting their own chances.

This tantalising contest is very tight to call outright, hence just going for a player bet this time around.

The Verdict:

United have looked extremely poor recently in the league. The off-field issues sometimes overshadowing simply how torrid they've been on pitch. Spurs could well capitalise on this, but United's midfield being likely to be overrun leads me to think there will be some cards in this game.

That's why I'm going with Scott McTominay to be booked with the boosted odds on bet365.
