Tottenham vs Manchester United Preview
While he will have done his best to put the 6-1 defeat behind him, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has certainly not forgotten that result.
Indeed, that match seems to have helped to shape his approach to subsequent high profile matches, when he has preferred to keep things tight and shut the opposition down.
This approach is not particularly entertaining for the neutrals, producing a total of just three goals in seven league matches against Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City.
Considering Mourinho’s own preference for counter-attacking football and desire to avoid defeat against his former club, it is hard to see Spurs opening themselves up too much either.

With this in mind, odds of 10/11 (1.91) seem fairly generous on under 2.5 goals being scored for United’s eighth league game in nine on the road, as well as a fourth trip in a row to Tottenham.
