Match preview: Manchester United looking to cement a top-four finish in trip to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

Manchester United will make the trip to North London this week to take on Tottenham Hotspur on Thursday, April 27. Kick-off is at 8.15pm. 

Managerless Spurs opted to sack interim coach Cristian Stellini yesterday after he oversaw a 6-1 defeat to Newcastle United at the weekend, in which five of the Magpies’ goals came in the opening 20 minutes.

Ryan Mason will now take charge of their meeting with the Red Devils and will stay in the dugout for the remainder of the season, whilst the board continue their search for a permanent successor to Antonio Conte.

Spurs sit fifth-placed in the Premier League table and are six points behind United having played two more games. They are winless since April 8 and have sustained two consecutive losses since then.

How United fare heading into the game

On the other hand, United are on a three-game winning and clean sheet streak – a run that they’ll be keen on extending on Thursday evening.

The reverse fixture between the sides ended 2-0 to Erik ten Hag’s side back in October 2022.

It is their return to league action after taking a break on Sunday to book their place in the FA Cup final. After Spurs, the Reds will take on in-form and European football-chasing Aston Villa at Old Trafford.
