Manchester United vs Tottenham Hotspur: Team News & Preview – Rashford starts as Fernandes drops out with illness

Manchester United take on Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford in the evening kick-off in what looks to be a pivotal match up in the race for the Premier League’s top four spots.

The home side come into this one in a poor run of form, having been battered 4-1 last weekend by bitter rivals and league leaders Manchester City in the Manchester derby.

Spurs however have won their last two in the league, scoring nine goals and conceding 0 in the process, with the in-form Harry Kane looking to build on his impressive scoring run.

The visitors will look to replicate their stunning 6-1 victory in this fixture last year when braces from Kane and partner in crime Son Heung-Min combined to leave the Red Devils devastated on their own patch.

United manager Ralf Rangnick has warned of the threat Tottenham will pose stating: “They are probably one of the best teams in transitional moments with Heung Min-Son and Harry Kane.”

Rangnick has been dealt a major injury blow with star midfielder Bruno Fernandes out of the squad due to illness, while Spurs make just one change with Sergio Reguilon set to start.
