Manchester United travel to White Hart Lane to take on Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League on Sunday.

Where to watch live

Kick-off is set for 12pm GMT. Live TV coverage of the game is available on BT Sport 1. Catch the highlights of the game on Match of the Day on BBC One and BBC One HD at 11pm GMT.


Tottenham welcome Manchester United to White Hart Lane for their second fixture in two days. Both teams come into this game on the back of winning runs in the Premier League and will be keen to get the three points to keep their momentum going in to the New Year.

Tottenham Hotspur recorded their third consecutive 2-1 victory and the latest win came over Leicester at the King Power Stadium, with form player Christian Eriksen yet again scoring the winner.

Mauricio Pochettino has a fully fit squad to choose from, and will make minimal changes to the team that started on Boxing Day. Ryan Mason is passed fit, so should come into the team in place of Benjamin Stambouli.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are one of the form teams of the league and they looked comfortable in their 3-1 win over Newcastle United on Boxing Day. Skipper Wayne Rooney, who is enjoying his new midfield role, was the star of the show, scoring two goals and setting up the third for strike partner Robin van Persie.

Louis van Gaal has a few injury headaches ahead of the game, with Angel di Maria a doubt after picking up an injury during training. The manager also confirmed in his press conference that there was a virus going around in the Red Devils' camp and it has already affected Adnan Januzaj and Marouane Fellaini.

The United manager could be in for a hostile reception from the home crowd, as he was close to taking the Tottenham job before snubbing them for the Old Trafford club at the last minute.

What managers say

Mauricio Pochettino [on Boxing Day win over Leicester]: "In the Premier League it's impossible to be relaxed. The level in our league is high and Leicester deserved more. They put in a very good performance and it doesn't reflect their position in the table. I recognise this and I'm very happy with the three points."

Louis van Gaal [on Wayne Rooney]: "When he scores two goals and also gives the assist for the third goal then you are very happy as a manager. He is also very happy I assume. He has the lung capacity to run for 90 minutes as a midfielder. That's why I use him like a midfielder. But I can also use him as a striker. But at the this moment it's better for the team when he plays in midfield."
