Monday's televised live game in the Premier Leagie is on paper one of the fixtures of the season.

Jose Mourhino's is favourite in some books to be the first Premier League managerial casualty of the season, not just because of last week's abject display at Brighton, but because of the continued rumours about rifts with the Board and the players.

But you know what you get with Mourhino and expect United to up their game for tonight's clash.

After all, United lost at Brighton last season as well - but they took no prisonors against the top six at Old Trafford and Spurs were one of their victims. In fact Spurs recent record at Old Trafford and away to their top six rivals is nothing short of abysmal.

Other than their win at Stamford Bridge last term Spurs have failed to win any of their last 20 encounters against the top sides away from home. The worst record of any of the title fancies.

Last term they were 1-0 losers as they were the previous two seasons, and you have to go back five years for their last win here.

That makes United an attactive bet at 13/8 - Spurs are flattered by wins at Newcastle and at home to Fulham.
