You can make a case that this upcoming week will make or break the Spurs season. The good news for Tottenham is that they are close to signing Paris Saint-Germain winger Lucas Moura. The Spurs need all the help they can get, as this week they face United and Liverpool and they have Arsenal and Juventus coming up in the following two games.
United is playing really well, as they routed Yeovil in the FA Cup on Friday. The Red Devils recently got Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal for Henrikh Mkhitaryan. Sanchez had two assists in his first game. United is 12 points back of Manchester City for first place, so they almost have to win out to have any chance of competing for the title.
United and Tottenham have split their last two Premier League meetings, with each team winning at home. The Spurs won 2-1 at home last season, while United won 1-0 at Old Trafford earlier this season.
Tottenham at Liverpool
Total 2.5 under -120
Tottenham +1/2 +190
Liverpool -1/2 -110
The Spurs will face a tough test on Sunday, as they visit Liverpool. This match could be termed even more important than the game against United because Liverpool is two points in front of Tottenham in the table. These teams have split their last two meetings, with each team winning at home. Liverpool won 2-0 at home last season, while the Spurs won 4-1 at home earlier this season. Liverpool should have the edge in this match, as they are at home and they will be playing with an extra day of rest.
Just six points separate the bottom 11 teams. It could be one of the craziest relegation battles in recent memory with so many teams so tightly packed with just 14 games remaining. The two matches to keep an eye on this week are Southampton at West Bromwich Albion and Watford at Stoke City. Both Southampton and Stoke City are currently in the relegation zone but they could each vault into safety with wins this week. Southampton has won each of the last two meetings against West Brom by identical 1-0 scores, while Stoke City has won each of the last two meetings against Watford.
