Predicted Manchester United and Tottenham line-ups

Old Trafford 2

Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur go head-to-head this weekend.

To be played on Saturday 8th August 2015 at 11:45. Venue: Old Trafford, Manchester

Odds: Man Utd 8/13, Draw 3/1, Tottenham 5/1

The new Premier League campaign is almost upon us and the first match sees Manchester United welcome Tottenham Hotspur to Old Trafford.

Both sides have been busy in the transfer market this summer, with United signing Morgan Schneiderlin, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Memphis Depay, Matteo Darmian and Sergio Romero and Tottenham strengthening their back-line by adding Kieran Trippier, Kevin Wimmer and Toby Alderweireld.

Many of these players are likely to be on show this weekend with both sides looking to start the new season in the best possible way.

United did not do that during manager Louis van Gaal’s first year in charge and the Dutchman will want to ensure his side hits the ground running this time out.

Tottenham do not have the best record at Old Trafford but they certainly have the squad to cause an upset here and their manager Mauricio Pochettino will know what a positive impact an opening-day victory will have on his players.

Below is how we predict United and Tottenham will line up on Saturday lunchtime.
