Mark Lawrenson of BBC has stated his prediction for Monday’s showdown between Tottenham and Manchester United at Old Trafford.
The match will be a test for the two teams who have made different starts to the new season.
While Tottenham have won their two games so far, United have found themselves in trouble this early into the campaign after a surprise 3-2 defeat to Brighton on Sunday.
Lawrenson has revealed his prediction for Monday’s affair and it is not a good one from Mauricio Pochettino’s point of view.
“Tottenham do not have a very good record at Old Trafford – they have lost their past five trips to Old Trafford, scoring just once.” Lawrenson said
“Manchester United will be hurting after being rolled over by Brighton. There seem to be some tensions there and there will be people with points to prove.
“Mourinho will be very intent on, once again, stopping Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen in the Spurs attack.
“Lawro’s prediction: 2-1”
