Man Utd v Tottenham Odds : Spurs too big to miss as punters pile on big price for away win at Old Trafford

Published

on

The evening kick-off on Saturday sees Manchester United host Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford, as Paddy Power announce a new free bets offer and report plenty of punters are attracted to the big price on Spurs (5/1) to pick up a vital away win.

Looking at United to begin with, they have had a great run of results recently, winning their previous four encounters in the Premier League.

Last time out at Liverpool the Red Devils played poorly by their own standards, but still managed to take the match 2-1, which goes to show what a strong outfit they are.

Super Saturday Offer : Paddy Power Free Bet

Its a cracking Saturday of football, as Paddy Power celebrate with the announcement of a new free bets offer worth £250/250 to all customers to spend on any match, they’ll also refund bets in the Arsenal v Chelsea game! Claim here!

All the talk at the moment is about Robin Van Persie as he has five goals in the top flight this campaign. Van Persie is likely to start in this one and seems as though nothing will stop him scoring goals at the moment. Wayne Rooney may also make his return from a thigh injury, after making an appearance in the home win over Newcastle in the League Cup midweek.

United hold a very good record at home to their opponents and have not been beaten by them at Old Trafford since the Premier League began back in 1992.

As for Tottenham, they have now got their season in full swing after a slow start. They come to Manchester United on the back on two straight wins and have some confidence in the side at last, and on paper at least have an impressive looking side, with Clint Dempsey, Mousa Dembele and Gareth Bale looking particularly threatening.

One thing Andre Villas-Boas will be wary of is his side being on the wrong end of a thrashing and having their confidence dented – his team is ow four games unbeaten after a sluggish start, and with a good 3-1 win away at Reading in their last away trip in the Premiership, some pundits may be quick to dispose of their chances at Old Trafford.

However, if Spurs want to challenge for the top four this season then these kind of matches are ones they should try and win. It will be a tough ask but with the players at their disposal, they can cause a few problems, and at 5/1, they surely look too big to dismiss.

Jermain Defoe has been the main man for the North London side and currently has four goals to his name. Defoe will need to be at his best if Villas-Boas’ men are to take anything from this one.

With bags of attacking talent on show, a fantastic 90 minutes of football gets underway from 5.30PM on Saturday.
