After being demolished 3-0 by RB Leipzig on Tuesday, Tottenham’s game against Manchester United on Sunday will see them look to salvage any slim hopes of a push for a top four place.
Having been knocked out both the Champions League and the FA Cup in the space of a week, the only thing they have left to play for this season is Champions League qualification.
The Lilywhites need to beat United in North London to keep their hopes of a top-four finish alive but it will be far from easy as Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s side have certainly found their feet in recent weeks.
The Premier League have confirmed that Michael Oliver will be in charge of the match. This is the fourth time Oliver will be taking charge of a Tottenham game this season, having won one, drawn one and lost one of the previous three (worldfootball.net).
Meanwhile, Stuart Burt and Simon Bennett will be the assistants for the clash while Craig Pawson has been appointed as the Fourth official.
Oliver will be assisted from Stockley Park by Paul Tierney, who will be in charge of the VAR for the match.

Given the form which Manchester United are in at the moment and the fact that we seem to be completely devoid of confidence, I can’t see anything but a defeat for us on Sunday. No matter what backline Jose opts for, I just don’t have much confidence in them to stop United from scoring.
