Manchester United will make the trip to an empty Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Friday night.

Tottenham

Starting with the hosts, last seen crashing out of the Champions League back in March thanks to a 4-0 aggregate hammering against Bundesliga outfit RB Leipzig, the enforced break couldn’t have come quick enough for Spurs. Making their return to action still sat outside the top-six, former United boss Jose Mourinho saw his side in the midst of what many were describing as an abysmal run of form earlier in the year.

Also watching Premier League strugglers Norwich knock them out of the FA Cup on home soil, the Lilywhites had lost five of their previous six matchups across all formats and didn’t have a win to their name since snatching a dramatic late winner at Villa Park on February 16th. While Mourinho will be glad to be able to call upon a string of returning stars on Friday night, Tottenham had previously gained a reputation for their worrying issues in North London. Hit with a 3-2 defeat against Wolves in their last appearance at their new home, Spurs have lost each of their last three matchups on home soil, their worst run since moving from Wembley.

After having the enforced break to deal with a string of injury issues, Mourinho will be glad to know that the trio of Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and Steven Bergwijn are all available for selection on Friday.

However, Spurs will be unable to call upon England international Dele Alli who will be serving a one-match suspension for an off-field issue prior to the break.

Manchester United

As for the visitors, while Tottenham may have entered the enforced break in the midst of a real sluggish patch, Manchester United found the mood around Old Trafford starting to skyrocket. With January arrival Bruno Fernades making an immediate impact following his move from Sporting Lisbon, the former champions were last seen back in March when smashing five past LASK while on Europa League duties.

Playing themselves firmly back into the Champions League chase, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side also shocked many with their last Premier League outing. Picking up local bragging rights thanks to a deserved 2-0 win against soon to be former champions Manchester City, Friday’s guests had won five of their last six contests across all competitions and were enjoying a remarkable 11-match unbeaten run. With an FA Cup quarter-final against Brighton on the horizon, United should also be boosted by their eye-catching record against Spurs. Landing a 2-1 win when the two sides last faced off back in December, Solskjaer’s side have won each of their last three meetings against Friday’s hosts.

Also with time to deal with some knocks to their biggest stars, the Red Devils will be glad to know that they can once again call upon Marcus Rashford who has overcome a back injury.

Elsewhere, also featuring in a behind-closed-doors friendly last week, Paul Pogba is set be handed a start alongside January arrival Bruno Fernandes.
