History of the Manchester United v Tottenham Hotspur fixture

Tottenham H. face a trip to Manchester United at Old Trafford on Tuesday evening, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Spurs will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 49 and win only 14 of the 76 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in March 2004, with Man Utd. running out comfortable 3 - 0 winners in a Premiership match.

Recent respective form guides

Manchester United could not have a more impressive recent home form, having won each of the last six games. In this time, Red Devils have rattled up an impressive 15 goals, and conceded 3.

Tottenham H.'s away form is equally impressive, picking up four victories from the last six. Just 7 goals have scored in these games, though to be fair only a measly 3 have been let in at the wrong end.

Man Utd. sit in a healthy 3rd in the league, and have picked up 43 points from their 21 games. Tottenham H.'s 32 points from 21 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 7th position.
