Two sides certainly not at the top and yet still in the top four face off on Wednesday night as Manchester United host Tottenham.
The Red Devils failed to score in a draw at home to Newcastle at the weekend, increasing the pressure for visiting Spurs as Erik ten Hag looks to show signs of progress from his side.
Once again Tottenham were efficient at best in beating Everton but Antonio Conte won’t complain about a third straight win.
With some good wins at Old Trafford to their name in recent years, Spurs hope to banish the memories of last season’s collapse at the hands of Cristano Ronaldo with this visit to the Theater of Dreams.

Manchester United vs Tottenham Team News
Marcus Rashford should be fit to start for United as Ten Hag faces the abandonment of Cristiano Ronaldo or Jadon Sancho to make way for the improving striker.
Harry Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Donny van de Beek are out while Christian Eriksen is doubtful. Scott McTominay returns from suspension.
Conte may have to turn to one of his reserves to fill out Tottenham’s attack given Richarlison’s absence and fears Dejan Kulusevski has yet to recover from a hamstring injury.
Yves Bissouma is ready to return to midfield if the Spurs boss switches from his preferred 3-4-3 to a 3-5-2 formation.
