The Red Devils go into the game looking for their seventh straight victory in all competitions, however will come up against a determined Tottenham side who are unbeaten in their last three Premier League matches. 

Ahead of the game, Manchester United will be hoping for the return of Wayne Rooney who was missed United's 1-0 win over Norwich City on Saturday. 

David Moyes could also welcome back Ecuadorian winger Antonio Valencia who is available for selection after serving his one-match suspension against the Canaries. 

Michael Carrick, who returned to action this past weekend, could keep his place in the side but may be replaced by Darren Fletcher. 

With Phil Jones and Rafael expected to miss the match with Spurs, Moyes may opt for a back four of Chris Smalling, Jonny Evans, Nemanja Vidic and Patrice Evra. 

Meanwhile, for Tottenham, Tim Sherwood could keep faith with his striker pairing of Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor. 

In midfield, Spurs will be without Paulinho which could hand a start to Étienne Capoue. 

Capoue should partner Dembele in the middle of the park with Aaron Lennon and Christian Eriksen completing the midfield. 

The likes of Kyle Walker and Danny Rose could return to the back four as Spurs attempt to win at Old Trafford for the second season running. 

Manchester United potential XI: De Gea, Smalling, Evans, Vidic, Evra, Valencia, Cleverley, Carrick, Young, Welbeck, Rooney

Tottenham potential XI: Lloris, Walker, Dawson, Chiriches, Rose, Lennon, Dembele, Capoue, Eriksen, Adebayor, Soldado
