Manchester United v Tottenham Hotspur - Premier League
Can the Red Devils turn around their recent slump in form?

At the start of the Premier League, a couple of weeks back Manchester United was more than with a chance of qualifying for the Champions League spot let alone the Premier League. Fast forward 3 weeks, the Red Devils seem to be in utter turmoil after narrowly winning their opening match against Leicester City and losing the next 2 matches against Brighton at Amex stadium and Tottenham Hotspurs at the Theatre of Dreams.

Jose Mourinho will be banking upon his team to turn around the results when they travel to Turf Moor on Sunday to take on Burnley.
