Former Arsenal defender Martin Keown has predicted a ‘cracker’ of an encounter between Manchester United and Spurs.

Spurs travel to Old Trafford on Monday night in their first clash with a team from the ‘big six’.

Manchester United suffered an unexpected defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion on the weekend.

However, Keown told The Daily Mail he expects United to be up for the occasion:

“I can see this being a cracker,” he said.

“There will be a reaction from the Old Trafford faithful after the Brighton defeat and they will be expecting United to attack.

Meanwhile, Spurs remain unbeaten in their first two Premier League games after making it maximum points against Fulham on Saturday.

“With the likes of Lukaku, Pogba and Rashford they have players who can hurt Tottenham.

“The problem is that their central defensive partnership looks loose. They do not seem solid or confident.

“For that reason, I’m going for a 2-2 draw.”
