Spurs are without Harry Kane, who is out injured, but Jose Mourinho and United have plenty of injury concerns of their own.
With Manchester City setting the early pace as PL leaders, but Spurs and United know a win would edge them closer towards Pep Guardiola’s side and perhaps establish themselves as City’s main title rivals.

With Kane out injured, Mauricio Pochettino starts with Heung-min Son up front and Eric Dier looks to have moved into the back three.
