United haven’t played a competitive fixture since their 5-0 drubbing of LASK in the Europa League on March 12 and will have a tough match in their return to action, facing Jose Mourinho’s Spurs on June 19. Before the campaign derailed, United were enjoying their best run of form since Solskjaer was named as permanent manager, going 10 games unbeaten in all competitions which included victories over Manchester City and Chelsea.
Previously teams were only permitted to name seven players on the bench and make three substitutions during a game but that has now changed for the remainder of the season. Now teams can name an additional two substitutes in their matchday squad and also make two extra changes if they so wish.
Head to Head
With Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba both set to return for the Tottenham match, Solskjaer has now even more options to play with and he will again have to experiment with how best to fit all his talent into the same starting XI. While the arrivals of Bruno Fernandes and Odion Ighalo in January gave the team a new lease of life, the positive run of results also saw United use multiple formations – showing that Solskjaer is continuing to develop a tactical flexibility and can adapt to specific opponents.
Tottenham’s quest to seal a Champions League place starts with a tough game against Manchester United. Mourinho has had to do without some big players in his short time at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, with Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and Moussa Sissoko all limiting his options in 2020 after sustaining injuries in the first two months of the year.
Spurs VS Red Devils
Spurs were win less in 6 games in all competitions before the break and their league form has left them with a mountain to climb if they are to finish in the top four. The Lilywhites need to hit the ground running and the new rule may see Mourinho plump for Kane, Son and Bergwijn in his starting XI against the Red Devils as they bid to gatecrash the Champions League places.
Here are the lineup predictions for Hottenham Hotspur’s next game against Man Utd.
