Is this thing on? It’s been a while.
Manchester United return to competitive action—albeit behind closed doors—for the first time since March, when they travel to face Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur on Friday. United will be hoping to pick up where they left off: unbeaten in 11 in all competitions, including Premier League wins over Chelsea and Manchester City. Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s men are now only a place and three points outside the top four, and have Chelsea within their sights.
Spurs could yet make a late run for the Champions League, but they’ll need to improve: they’re currently down in eighth place, below Sheffield United and Wolverhampton Wanderers, and four points in arrears of United. They’ll be without the suspended Dele Alli, while Son Heung-Min and Giovani Lo Celso are doubts. United’s only injury concern is Phil Jones, who remains doubtful. Paul Pogba could make his first appearance since Boxing Day.
