Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester United: 4 key battles | Premier League 2018-19
#2 Dele Alli vs Victor Lindelof
Tottenham is likely to use a high pressing game, and that will surely worry the likes of Victor Lindelof. The player he is going to come up against most of the match is Dele Alli. The young Englishman is capable of the spectacular from time to time, and Lindelof will have his work cut out.
The Swede will have to be mindful whenever he steps into the midfield with the ball, as Alli will look to press him and initiate a counter. Alli will also be the first line of defence for Spurs when Lindelof is stepping forward with the ball.
The Swede has really caught a number of teams by surprise since the appointment of Ole Gunnar, as they have really struggled to pick him out. He will try as much as possible to initiate attacks from the back, especially when the midfield is crowded.
With Alli's undoubtedly huge potential, Lindelof will need to be wary of him every chance he gets the ball. He can spot a pass, and can comfortably score as well. He will also pop up in a number of places around the United box, and the defender will have to track him at every moment.
Alli is definitely a tough customer when on song, and Victor Lindelof will have to be on his A game in the match.
