As things stand, Tottenham sits in eighth place of the EPL standings with 41 points, while Manchester United is in fifth with 45 points. Chelsea sits in fourth (the last Champions League spot) with its 48 points.
For Spurs, they desperately need a win over United on June 19 to keep their CL hopes alive. As for Man U, a win on the road against a club of Tottenham's magnitude would obviously be a monster result for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Co.
When the two sides met in their first meeting of the season at Old Trafford, United came away with a narrow 2-1 win. Marcus Rashford opened the scoring, while Dele Alli evened things up before halftime. However, Rashford earned a penalty early in the second half and converted moments later to give United the win.
Will Tottenham get revenge next week and keep their Champions League hopes alive as well? We'll find out next Friday night.
