Tottenham Hotspur vs. Manchester United: Where to Watch, Live Stream, Team News and Latest Odds

When Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United last met, the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revolution was in full swing.

United extended its winning run as Marcus Rashford scored the winner at Wembley and the doom and gloom that engulfed the 20-time champions of England under Jose Mourinho seemed just a distant memory.

The feel-good factor evaporated within a few months and United limped to a dismal sixth-place finish, while Spurs finished fourth and reached their first-ever Champions League final, which they lost 2-0.

As the two teams meet in Shanghai, China, on Thursday in the last of their two-game preseason tours in Asia, it's hard to dispel the feeling Tottenham remains a club on an upward trajectory—with United looking to bridge the gap.

Solskjaer's men are on a three-game winning streak—after beating Perth Glory and Leeds United in Australia and Inter Milan in Singapore—and the Norwegian has done his best to give the team a new identity.

United has looked more incisive and direct this summer than during most of last season, but a number of glaring issues have not been addressed. Solskjaer still needs to sign a commanding center-back—although United is reportedly edging closer to a deal for Leicester City's Harry Maguire—and the midfield remains short of both quality and quantity.

Meanwhile, after not buying a single player last summer, Mauricio Pochettino has loosened the purse strings this year, signing Tanguy Ndombele for a club-record fee.

While United is looking to force its way into the top four again, Spurs are looking to close the gap to Manchester City and Liverpool and turn a two-horse race into a three-team affair next season.

Here's everything you need to know ahead of Thursday.

Spurs kicked off their Asia tour in fine style on Sunday, beating Juventus 3-2 in Singapore thanks to an extraordinary goal from Harry Kane in injury time. With the clock ticking into the third minute of stoppage, the England captain scored an audacious chip from the halfway line to win the game for his side.

United also took on a Serie A team at the weekend, beating Inter Milan 1-0 thanks to a goal from Mason Greenwood. United has now won each of its three preseason matches and is yet to concede a goal.

Team news

Spurs fielded a strong team against Juventus, with Kane, Son Heung-min, Lucas Moura and Dele Alli all involved, as was new club-record signing Ndombele.

While Pochettino might shuffle his pack, he is expected to pick a strong XI again. Solskjaer has adopted a similar approach, giving new signing Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka their debuts, alongside the likes of Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.

Young players have also been a feature of United's preseason, with Greenwood and James Garner impressing so far this summer. Against Spurs, Solskjaer is expected to again give his youngsters a chance to prove themselves.


According to Oddsportal, Spurs are a 153/100 favorite to win, while United is a 41/25 outsider and the draw is at 249/100.
