Sky Sports football pundit Paul Merson has had his say on who he thinks will the match between Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur.
Both sides meet at Old Trafford on Monday evening with Tottenham looking to maintain their unbeaten start to the new campaign, while United are looking to avenge their embarrassing defeat to Brighton.
We all know that our record at United in the Premier League era hasn’t been great, especially with some dodgy refereeing decisions. Who could forget the goal that never was when Pedro Mendes ‘scored’ from the halfway line?
This game represents our first game test of the season. A win away from home against Mourinho’s United would be a huge confidence boost for our side.
However, Merson believes that Tottenham will come away from the game empty-handed.
He told Sky Sports: “Huge match.
“Over the last three or four years, you see Manchester United turn it on in these type of games, when the pressure is on. They’ve done it to Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool, Tottenham, everyone.
“I don’t know how they do it. I’ve seen this so many times.
“Jose Mourinho will tell them to go out and prove they’re good enough to play for the biggest club in the world. Because that’s what they are, in my opinion.
