The gaffer has a decent record against the former Manchester United boss.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has only lost once in 3 meetings with José Mourinho.
The Norwegian is unbeaten against Mourinho as United manager, though. United beat Spurs at Old Trafford and picked up on a point on the road against the North London outfit.
Solskjaer’s only loss against Mourinho came in the 2013-14 season — when his Cardiff City side lost 2-1 against Chelsea.
The formation that has worked for Solskjaer against Mourinho has been 4-2-3-1 — and we think it he will opt for the same on Sunday.
This is also United’s first big game of the season which doesn’t fill me with confidence like it should.
There will be drama (as is always the case with VAR) and Mourinho has already started his mind games, as per The Express. The man tasked with making sure the game runs smoothly is referee Anthony Taylor.
Speaking of Mourinho, this is a stat that will leave him fuming and against his former side he will want his players to make a statement.
And with the way United have been playing I’m not sure what to expect on Sunday.
