The teams are out for Manchester United's match against Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane. The game, which was due to kick off at 4 p.m., has been postponed by a quarter-of-an-hour as the Reds' team bus is apparently stuck in traffic. Not exactly ideal preparation for the game, but there we go.

The biggest news is that Timothy Fosu-Mensah has been given a start on the right side of defence after impressing in his few substitute appearances. He's given the nod at right-back over Matteo Darmian and Antonio Valencia, who start on the bench.

United are otherwise as expected, with Marcus Rashford keeping his place up front, ahead of Anthony Martial, Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard. Morgan Schneiderlin and Michael Carrick make up the deep-lying midfield duo.
