Ole Gunnar Solskjaer managed-Manchester United will face one of the toughest tests when they lock horns with Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League on Saturday. The Norweigian’s managerial career could be at stake this weekend.
Tottenham Hotspur are currently in the sixth place in the league table. The North London side had suffered a shocking 1-0 defeat against West Ham United last week and they saw the same fate against Vitesse in the Europa Conference League as well. They will be eyeing to grab a victory against The Red Devils.
Spurs have failed to be consistent but they did manage to record important league wins over Aston Villa and Newcastle United before defeat against West Ham.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have only actually scored nine times in their nine league games this season, while Harry Kane has registered just once in England’s top flight this term. That could change in the weekend.
Manchester United, on the other hand, had started their Premier League campaign with a positive outlook but have now been derailed by a string of astonishing results. The Red Devils were humiliated by Liverpool last weekend when they were thrashed by a margin of 5-0 and cannot afford another disaster this weekend.
United have now lost three of their last four league matches and collected just a single point in the process – which has seen them drop down to the seventh position in the table.
