Are Manchester United and Tottenham the real deal? We’ll find out on Saturday lunchtime.
This game will feature 22 players, four match officials and two managers….and yet the irony is that one man – Harry Kane – could define how it pans out.
The in-form frontman has been struggling with a hamstring injury this week, and with a Champions League game with Real Madrid on Wednesday Mauricio Pochettino may just opt to leave him on the sidelines here.
That will really hurt Tottenham, as Kane’s replacement – Fernando Llorente – is a handful but does not provide that sort of galvanising effect that the England number nine does.
Home or away, Jose Mourinho will park the bus against the big six sides, and like the 0-0 draw at Anfield a fortnight ago, that hardly lends itself to a goal-fest.
