Manchester United Host Spurs in Crunch Premier League Clash


David De Gea, already stepping into some of the biggest shoes you'll ever find, is facing some criticism after a soft goal in his Manchester United debut and he will be looking to put in a serious performance against Tottenham Hotspur on Monday in the English Premier League. Widely-regarded as a first-rate shot stopper but a slightly erratic keeper nonetheless, the young Spaniard has seen his teammates rally around him in recent days.


United are odds-on to pull off an important victory in Monday's fixture and the majority of bookmakers have them as short as 8/13 against Harry Redknapp's side – who won't be pursuing their Champions League ambitions this year – but still managed to hit Hearts for five on Thursday in their Europa League play-off.

Rio Ferdinand has reportedly shaken off an injury sustained in United's opening fixture against West Brom and could be set for a return in Monday's match though many expect the Twitter impresario to be seated on the bench. United now have a few more options in central midfield with Phil Jones and Jonny Evans looking set to put together a formidable partnership over the years and Fergie looks keen to foster it now.

Javier Hernandez is still not set for a Manchester United return but the injury he sustained during the American tour in the summer is reportedly healing nicely and he will be back before you know it. Nemanja Vidic is said to be out for a month after picking up an injury in the last fixture as well.

Look for Ryan Giggs' experience to be a part of Fergie's strategy for this one. Spurs have been looking increasingly cultured going forward and, though they lack viable striking options, they can pick up goals from any end of the pitch – step up Gareth Bale. Look for Ashley Young to be given another starting berth but I expect Antonio Valencia to get the nod over Nani, who was slightly wasteful in the last fixture. There is some serious competition in the United midfield – particularly on the flanks.

Look for United at 8/13 while Spurs are listed at a hefty 9/2 price tag. The draw rewards at 11/4 and that might be a best-case scenario for Tottenham fans if United can get off to another solid start and David De Gea shakes the bats out of the belfry.
