Sunday’s Premier League action concludes at Wembley where Tottenham Hotspur take on Manchester United.

Since beating Cardiff City convincingly in their last league game on New Years Day, the North London side have emphatically booked their place in the fourth round of the FA Cup with a 7-0 triumph at Tranmere Rovers and beat Chelsea in the first leg of their EFL Cup semi-final tie.

Another win here would see them leapfrog Manchester City into second place, at least until the champions host Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday evening.

Eric Dier will miss the game after having surgery on his appendix and Lucas Moura is a doubt though Jan Vertonghen is back in training, as it Mousa Dembele amid reports that he could be set to leave the club.

Harry Kane is favourite to get the first goal of the game at 4.6 (18/5) with Bet Victor, with Lucas Moura a 9.0 (8/1) shot with a number of firms.

The home win is 2.16 (22/19) with Unibet, with the visitors as highly priced as the 3.6 (14/5) on offer from some bookmakers. The draw can be backed at 3.75 (11/4) with Coral.

Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s perfect start as interim Manchester United manager continued into the FA Cup last weekend, and he will equal Sir Matt Busby’s record of winning his first five league games with another victory here.

Three points would see the Red Devils move level with fifth place Arsenal while a 3-0 victory would see them equal the Gunners in every column, including goals for and goals against.

Paul Pogba is expected for return after missing out last weekend with a leg injury, though Eric Bailly is suspended, and fellow defenders Chris Smalling and Marcos Rojo are sidelined.

Romelu Lukaku, who has scored in his last three games is 7.0 (6/1) to net first here, ahead of 10.0 (9/1) chance Marcus Rashford.

Spurs ran out 3-0 winners at Old Trafford back in August and won last seasons corresponding fixture by two goals to nil.

However, with both teams in form, you may be tempted to back both teams to score at 1.53 (8/15) with William Hill.
