Man United vs Tottenham
Perhaps the biggest tie of the current Premier League game week sees Manchester United and Tottenham go head-to-head.
Both sides will, of course, be hoping to be competing for a top-four berth come the close of the season, meaning they will no doubt be keen to get one over on their rivals as soon as possible.
Sunday’s clash also has the added spice of Jose Mourinho returning to Old Trafford.
The always vocal Mourinho has something of a strange rivalry with his old club. Since Sir Alex Ferguson left in 2013, the Portuguese tactician has been the Red Devils’ most successful boss.
However, he was sacked by the club and would no doubt love to get one over on his successor, especially given Spurs lost and drew with United last term.

Mourinho done moaning
The trip to Old Trafford brings a close to an extremely hectic Spurs schedule.
Last Sunday saw the Lilywhites face off with Newcastle in the league. This was then followed by a League Cup clash on Tuesday and a Europa League tie on Thursday.
Playing four high-profile games in a week is, obviously, tough on any squad.
However, when speaking ahead of the United game, Mourinho stated that he doesn’t want to moan anymore about Spurs’ fixture list and will not be using that or anything else, as an excuse vs Man United:
“I am used to [the schedule being unfair].
“It’s the last one, the last match. I don’t want to moan. I moaned enough and I moaned with real things on my hands and I don’t think anyone disagreed with me.
“But now is only one more match, only the United match. And no excuses. They had only one match for the week and it was on Wednesday and probably the majority of the players who played are not going to play Sunday. But I won’t forget that.”
