Tottenham Hotspur find themselves in all sorts of problems following the 6-0 defeat to Manchester City, their second successive Premier League loss, so this is hardly the perfect time to be facing the reigning champions.
While Spurs are still misfiring up front, their back line is no longer as solid as it used to be and under-fire Andre Villas-Boas has got plenty of reason for concern before the clash with Manchester United.
Tottenham have been priced at 13/8 to return to winning ways, but I am sure you will agree there is absolutely no value in odds offered on home win.
Meanwhile, Manchester United go into the game desperate to make amends for the 2-2 draw at Cardiff City, but also buoyed by the amazing 5-0 triumph over Bayer Leverkusen.
With Wayne Rooney creating four assists to prove he is on top of his game and Robin van Persie likely to return, odds of 13/8 offered on away win look too good to pass up.
The Red Devils are still not playing to their potential, but they continue to improve week in week out, and they have an excellent opportunity to record another away victory.
With Phil Jones and Shinji Kagawa both returning into action in midweek, and Antonio Valencia raising his form, David Moyes’ side will fancy their chances of winning in North London.
