Tottenham Hotspur V Manchester United: Where Is The Betting Value?

We take a look at where there might be betting value in this battle for the top four
11:00, 27 Apr 2023

Tottenham Hotspur are at a low point after suffering a humiliating 6-1 loss at Newcastle United last weekend. Spurs were 5-0 down inside 20 minutes at St James’ Park which led to many of their fans leaving the stadium.

Interim boss Cristian Stellini has since been let go and the club has turned to familiar interim Ryan Mason to oversee first-team affairs until the end of the season. On Thursday evening, Spurs entertain Manchester United in a huge clash in the race for the top four which neither team can afford to lose, particularly the hosts. United are currently six points ahead of Spurs in the standings with two games in hand.

Punters will be wondering where the value in betting in this match lies. These are the standout stats and trends to make a note of ahead of this crunch clash.

Erik ten Hag’s side have scored in both halves in their previous two fixtures in the top flight. United to score in both halves against Spurs is priced at 2/1.

Harry Kane has 24 league goals this term and has scored in 66% of Spurs’ Premier League games, he is 10/3 to score first and 10/11 to score at any time.

Marcus Rashford is United’s top goalscorer in the league with 15 and he is 4/1 to open the scoring in north London. He is valued at 11/10 to score at any time.

Kane and Rashford have scored three and two Premier League braces this year respectively, Kane to score two or more is 9/2 and for Rashford the price is 6/1.


Cristian Romero has accumulated the second-most yellow cards for Tottenham in the league this term with seven. The Argentine is the 13/8 favourite to receive a booking in this one.

Casemiro had never been sent off in his career before joining Manchester United in the summer and he has already been sent off twice for the Red Devils this campaign. He is 7/4 to go into the referee’s book and you can get 9/2 on there to be a sending off during the match.

Despite his two dismissals, Casemiro is not the United player with the most yellow cards. Scott McTominay has amassed the most bookings with seven and he is 9/4 to get booked - but he is unlikely to be in the starting lineup. 

Attacking midfielder Bruno Fernandes has racked up six yellow cards in 2022-23 and is often aggressive in his challenges as well as being very vocal when moaning to the referees. He is 11/4 to pick up a yellow card.
