Liverpool legend Mark Lawrenson gives his prediction for Tottenham vs Manchester United

Manchester United were dealt a 6-1 defeat in the reverse fixture against Tottenham at Old Trafford back in October.

United have since bounced back from that defeat and will be keen on retaliating at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium when both sides meet on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Liverpool legend Mark Lawrenson believes that United will be beaten again by Tottenham and has predicted a 2-1 victory in favour of Jose Mourinho’s men.

Speaking to the BBC, Mark Lawrenson said: “When Tottenham beat Manchester United 6-1 at Old Trafford on 4 October, it wasn’t even the craziest result of the day – that was Aston Villa’s 7-2 win over Liverpool.

“I’m not expecting the same kind of scoreline this time – since that game, Man United have really tightened up against other teams in the top six – but I’m still going for another Spurs win.

“A draw is not much good to Jose Mourinho’s side after they dropped points against Newcastle last week, and we might just see a reaction to his comments about their poor defensive display at St James’ Park.”
