Manchester United vs Tottenham Hotspur - 5 key players to watch out for
Manchester United host Tottenham Hotspur this week at Old Trafford in what is shaping up to be a game with a lot of significance. Both the clubs have had a very uninspiring start to the season, and would be eyeing this matchup with great interest and desperation.
Tottenham have been in good form recently after appointing Jose Mourinho as their manager. United on the other hand are languishing at 9th place in the table as of now, trailing Tottenham by two points. Both teams will be looking to win this game as they try to close the gap on the teams above them in the table.
On that note, here is a look at the top 5 players to keep an eye on in this fixture.
5. Son Heung-min
Even though Tottenham have started poorly by their standards in the Premier League, Son Heung-min is one of the few players who has performed well. Son has scored seven goals and assisted seven times this season.
There were fears that Son would need some time to recover emotionally from the unfortunate incident with Andre Gomes, especially after the picture showing his reaction to the injury suffered by Gomes. But Son has been able to put that behind him and continue to perform at a high level.
The Korean has continued his good form under Mourinho, and as always is a very important player for Tottenham in their key fixtures. Son is hard-working and an excellent finisher, and Mourinho will be expecting him to produce some magic against United to help Tottenham win the game.
