Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

Man Utd have lost three of their last seven home league against Spurs (W4), including this exact fixture 0-3 last season. They’d only lost two of their previous 36 at home against them in the top-flight (W27 D7).

Tottenham have lost more Premier League games against Man Utd than they have vs any other side in the competition (34).

The away side won both Premier League meetings between Manchester United and Tottenham last season, after the home side had won seven in a row in such games.

Manchester United have picked up just 18 points from their opening 14 Premier League matches this season (W4 D6 L4), their worst start to a league season since the 1988-89 campaign, when they also had 18 points and went on to finish 11th.

Tottenham won their last away league game against West Ham, picking up as many points in that game as they had in their previous 12 on the road in the Premier League (W0 D3 L9).

Since keeping three consecutive Premier League clean sheets in February, Manchester United have only kept two in their last 25 games in the competition (36 goals conceded).

Tottenham boss José Mourinho could become just the third manager to win a Premier League away game at Old Trafford with two different clubs (after Martin O’Neill and Rafael Benítez), having won there 3-1 with Chelsea in May 2005.

José Mourinho could become the first ever Tottenham manager to win their first three top-flight games in charge of the club.

Both Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur have dropped 12 points from winning positions in the Premier League this season – only Aston Villa have dropped more (13).

Tottenham’s Dele Alli has been directly involved in three goals in his last two Premier League games (2 goals, 1 assist), as many as he had in his final 12 appearances under Mauricio Pochettino.
