Manchester United host Tottenham in the early hours of Monday morning (AEST) in a crucial match between two top-four candidates.

Although Louis Van Gaal may be feeling the pressure as Manchester United manager, his side haven’t been performing too badly in the league. The Red Devils have lost just once in their past seven matches, but with Spurs and Liverpool closing in on the top four at a rapid rate, they can’t afford to slip up. Unless there’s a miracle, United will end the season trophyless for a second consecutive year after crashing out of the FA Cup during the week. English rivals Arsenal managed a 2-1 win at Old Trafford on Tuesday, and tensions are brewing again in the north of England. That match saw Angel Di Maria sent off for two bookable offences, meaning the Argentine will be unavailable for Monday’s fixture.

Last weekend’s 2-1 triumph over QPR was Tottenham’s fifth win in their past seven league matches, and they’re finding momentum at just the right time. With eight of their remaining ten fixtures coming against sides outside the top six, Spurs find themselves in a favourable position to finish in the all-important Champions League spot. Whether they achieve that feat or not, this campaign has been impressive from the North Londoners. Their style of play has improved tenfold, and they’ve unearthed a couple of young stars in the process. Danish midfielder Christian Eriksen has only developed in the centre of the park, while Harry Kane has taken the EPL by storm in attack. The latter already has 16 goals to his name in his debut EPL season, and he’s a favourable pick in the first goal scorer market at .

With the top of the table getting more and more congested as weeks go by, these three points on offer will be telling come the end of the season. In their fourteen league matches at Old Trafford this season, United have lost on just two occasions, and that’s why punters keep coming for them in the head-to-head market.
