Where to Watch Live

Kick-off is at 4m GMT. Live coverage is on Sky Sports 1 and Sky Sports 1 HD. Radio commentary of the game will be available on BBC Radio 5 Live. Catch the highlights of the game on Match of the Day 2 on BBC One and BBC One HD at 10.30pm GMT.


United come into this game after being knocked out of the FA Cup following their 2-1 defeat at the hands of Arsenal earlier this week at Old Trafford. Nacho Monreal's first half goal was cancelled by Wayne Rooney's header within minutes.

However, a misjudged back pass from Antonio Valencia saw former Old Trafford academy graduate Danny Welbeck score the winner for the north London club. The clash also saw Angel Di Maria tap the referee's back, for which he received his second yellow and is suspended for the weekend clash.

Louis van Gaal will be hoping his side can bounce back with a victory over the north London club at home on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Tottenham enter this fixture with a 2-1 win over Queens Park Rangers away from home. Harry Kane's brace helped Mauricio Pochettino's side seal three points. After five defeats, the White Hart Lane outfit have bounced back with two wins in the Premier League.

A defeat against United at Old Trafford will be a massive blow for Tottenham in the race to finish the season in the top four.

What They Say

Louis van Gaal: "It is not easy to play Tottenham. I like their process because you can see that a lot of experienced players are not playing and a lot of youngsters are playing. In spite of that, they are also very close and are playing attacking football."

Mauricio Pochettino: "I am brave. I never think in another way. My football idea is always to concentrate on the opponents' goal, so why should I change? It goes against my way of thinking. My football is about trying to have the ball, playing attacking football and damaging the opponent. This is my feeling, my idea, and I need to translate those ideas to the team."
