Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester United: 5 Man Utd players to watch out for | Premier League 2018-19
It is certainly no secret that Manchester United have started well under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Their form has been amazing, winning all the games they have played under the new caretaker manager. The Norwegian tactician has certainly brought order and swagger back to how United play.
Against Tottenham, the team will face its most difficult challenge since the appointment of Ole Gunnar as manager. The teams they have faced so far have not put up a strong challenge as compared to what is expected of Tottenham.
It can be said that the team has largely been comfortable thus far.
This however doesn’t take away from the fact that the players have looked more confident and assured under the Norwegian manager. They have been playing with all the confidence you expect of Manchester United players. When they walk onto the pitch, they look like they want to win the match, rather than looking defeated as they were under Jose Mourinho.
David De Gea has continued to shine between the sticks, Paul Pogba finally looks like a world class midfielder, and Marcus Rashford is finally blooming. Of course, there have been other top performers in the team as well.
Against Spurs, they will all have to bring their A game, and look to continue their winning form. A win against Spurs will send a strong statement throughout the league that Manchester United may be truly back.
Here are five players that need to be on point if the team is to secure a win against Tottenham Hotspur.
#1 David De Gea
David De Gea has really been a revelation since he joined Manchester United a couple of years back. He stood tall even when the team looked very much in disarray after Sir Alex left the club.
Against Tottenham, the Spaniard is expected to play a huge role for the team. Tottenham will not shy away from putting up attacks against Manchester United; De Gea will need to be alert throughout the game. If United are to come away from this fixture with something, then David De Gea will definitely have a huge say.
