Manchester United have been able to hold a 100% record under Solskjaer but the opposition faced by the Red Devils have not been very challenging. This could change against Tottenham, who are potentially in the fight for the league title with only six points separating them from the top of the table. Spurs do not have the best home record in the division, but Manchester United are not great away from home either. There are some injury concerns for Solskjaer and Mauricio Pochettino could get his team to a fourth consecutive win over United.

Tottenham vs Manchester United draw odds: 3.70
Manchester United win odds: 3.60
Correct Score odds
Tottenham have been a strong force going forward while they have been extremely prudent at the back. It is difficult to separate the two outfits in terms of goals scored over the last six matches, as the arrival of Solskjaer has a rejuvenated United. Meanwhile, the form of players like Son and Kane continue to carry Spurs. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-1 win for the home team.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The last two meetings between Tottenham and United have witnessed over 2.5 goals. If United were under the management of Jose Mourinho, a defensive approach would have been expected from the visitors. Yet, Solskjaer has proved to be an attack-minded manager in his first few games at United. Our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Harry Kane has been able to get 14 goals in the league to assume position as the joint top score in the division alongside Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The England forward has been able to score in his last six appearances. Even though his record against United is not the greatest with just two goals in nine matches, our first goalscorer prediction would back Harry Kane due to his recent form.
