Manchester United vs Tottenham Hotspur: Last 3 meetings
Both clubs, while a part of the 'traditional' big six, have not been in the best of form this season. While Tottenham are placed sixth on the points table behind the likes of Crystal Palace, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's United are languishing in 10th place.
Looking at their form as well as managerial history, it's safe to say that both teams will be desperate for a win on Thursday. On that note, let's take a look at the last three meetings between the two sides:
Tottenham Hotspur 0 - 1 Manchester United
13 January 2019, Premier League
One of the major results in Solskjaer's honeymoon period with United, this win over Tottenham at the Wembley Stadium gave the Red Devils their sixth victory in as many games under their then caretaker manager.
Marcus Rashford, who played on the right flank with Jesse Lingard as the central forward and Anthony Martial as his left-wing counter-part, found the net at the cusp of half-time to give United the lead. That turned out to be the solitary goal of the match, and combined with David de Gea's vintage brilliance between the sticks, it was enough to secure three points for the visiting side.
The Spaniard made 11 saves as opposed to seven from Hugo Lloris, including a sensational stop against Dele Alli in the second half. After that, he pulled off an excellent reaction-save to deny Toby Alderweireld.
Lloris also upped his game in the second half to keep United's tally to one. The damage, however, was already done.
