Football News

Manchester United face Tottenham at White Hart Lane this afternoon, less than 48 hours after their 3-1 victory over Newcastle United.

Louis van Gaal’s side haven’t suffered defeat since the Manchester derby on November 2 - a run which now stretches eight matches - and are the marginal favourites against a Spurs side who have won their previous four games in all competitions.

The teams are now in - and here’s how they line-up…

Team line-ups

Tottenham: Lloris, Chiriches, Fazio, Vertonghen, Davies; Mason, Stambouli; Chadli, Eriksen, Townsend; Kane.

Subs: Vorm, Dier, Walker, Lamela, Dembele, Paulinho, Soldado.

Manchester United: De Gea; Jones, McNair, Evans, Valencia, Young; Carrick, Rooney, Mata; Van Persie, Falcao .

Subs: Lindegaard, Rafael, Smalling, Shaw, Fletcher, A.Pereira, Wilson.


United are unchanged from the side that beat Newcastle on Boxing Day. Paddy McNair retains his place in the Red Devils’ back three, while Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and Radamel Falcao all start.

Tottenham, meanwhile, stick with the in-form Harry Kane upfront. Andros Townsend starts in place of Erik Lamela.
