Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be hoping to complete a double when Manchester United take on Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur in tonight’s Premier League tie in London.

Last December, the Red Devils were 2-1 winners over Spurs in the reverse fixture at Old Trafford and a win tonight will see United’s long push to break into the top-four become a reality even if it is momentarily.

After enduring a torrid patch, the Red Devils have found their rhythm and were enjoying a good run of form before they were halted by the enforced break occasioned by the coronavirus pandemic.

Thankfully for United, Marcus Rashford who got the two goals in the reverse tie is back and buzzing after a long injury layoff.

Another long time absentee, Paul Pogba, is also back from injury for United as Solskjaer is gifted a loaded arsenal to face Spurs in London.

Mourinho also has something to cheer about as he would be looking for revenge against his former team.

The Portuguese manager has confirmed Harry Kane, Heung-Min Son and Moussa Sissoko will all start tonight’s tie.
