Tottenham Hotspur will face off against Manchester United at Old Trafford this Wednesday night as they look to earn a positive result away from home. Spurs managed to secure a 2-0 win over Everton in midweek which will keep them in high spirits ahead of this game.
Antonio Conte will opt for a 3-5-2 formation once again and could name a strong team for this game. Yves Bissouma will probably get a chance to play from the start while Richarlison misses out for the North London club due to injury.
3-5-2 Tottenham Hotspur Predicted Lineup To Face Manchester United
Hugo Lloris will feature in between the sticks for Spurs after securing a clean sheet versus the Toffees in his last league appearance. Conte could name a back three of Davinson Sanchez, Eric Dier and Ben Davies for this game as they try to keep the Red Devils from causing too many problems during the 90 minutes.
Cristian Romero will provide cover for the centre-back spots on Conte’s bench.
Pierre-Emile Højbjerg, Yves Bissouma and Rodrigo Bentancur will anchor the midfield for the North London club as they try to stop the home team from dominating possession at the centre of the park. All three of them will have to work hard collectively if Spurs are to come out on top at the Theatre of Dreams this week.
Ivan Perisic will get another shot to impress as the left-sided wing-back while Matt Doherty focuses on putting in a hard-working performance on the right flank. Both of them will have to do their fair share of defending at Old Trafford this Wednesday night.
Oliver Skipp will be named on the bench as he waits for his opportunity to catch the eye as an impact substitute if needed.
Harry Kane will once again spearhead Conte’s attack alongside Heung-min Son up top. Both of them would be eager to link up play well with each other and cause a lot of chaos inside the Man United penalty box on the counter. Kane is in a good run of form at the moment having scored the opener versus Everton recently, so he will fancy his chances of another fruitful display later this week.
As mentioned earlier, Richarlison is unlikely to be ready in time for this clash. Furthermore, Dejan Kulusevski is also a significant concern ahead of this game as he is still recovering from a thigh problem.
