There are just 14 matches to go in the Premier League season, and time is running out for Tottenham Hotspur to once again qualify for the Champions League. Though they are in the last-16 of this season’s tournament, and still in the FA Cup, winning silverware remains an unlikely achievement this year. If that is the case, then keeping hold of star players like Harry Kane and Dele Alli is likely to be extremely difficult in the summer.

Therefore, it is imperative that Spurs finish at least fourth so that they can give their stars a reason to stay. Beating direct opponents is the best way to climb up from their current position of fifth, and Manchester United – currently second – are visiting Wembley on Wednesday night. Anything but a home win could see Liverpool open up a bigger gap than their current two points.



Spurs have been altogether weaker than the last two seasons with five defeats already, but with Kane, who has 21 league goals but missed the defeat at Old Trafford in October, the north Londoners will always stand a chance.

United, meanwhile, have had a strong season to this point, though two of their three Premier League defeats came to top four teams – Chelsea and Manchester City – and they performed defensively at Anfield to get a 0-0 draw. That is one of the areas that Jose Mourinho has struggled to convince in since taking over – beating the big teams.

Although, the Red Devils have won each of their five games so far in 2018 without conceding a goal. They are also boosted by the arrival of Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal, and the Chilean is likely to make his league debut having starred against Yeovil Town in the FA Cup.

A defeat at Wembley for the visitors would probably spell the end of United’s slim title hopes, with Manchester City playing West Brom. Tipbet have over 100 markets to choose from for this exciting midweek Premier League fixture, and the odds show that a close game is likely, though the hosts are marginal (2.30) favourites. A draw (3.40) would guarantee that United remain in second, while they are 3.25 to continue their impressive form with another win.
