Tottenham v Manchester United: The stats that show why Spurs’ new year revolution could start here

We've shaken off the hangover to bring you this sharp infographic which gives a few betting points on Sunday's big game...

by Paul Mallon | December 27, 2014

Tottenham 11/5 | Draw 12/5 | Man Utd 6/5

  • White Hart Lane (Sunday, 12-midday, BT Sport 1)

Spurs haven’t lost against Manchester United since September 2012. Let that sink in as Louis van Gaal’s side march through an eight-game streak that includes just one draw among seven victories. Surely even Mauricio Pochettino can’t screw this up.

Yes, van Gaal’s rejuvenated Reds head to London after amassing 22 points from a possible 24. That’s title-winning form, if it wasn’t for the two teams performing better above them in the Premier League.

Spurs, on the otherhand, are down in seventh, looking very Spurs-ish, but they’re just a couple of points from the Champions League spots. Perfect timing so, for a refresher on the Londoners’ form against the northerners.

Pre-2012, it was horrific as our infographic shows. In 25 games under managerial greats such as Juande Ramos, Jacques Santini and Martin Jol (among others), they’d won a total of zero games against Manchester United and Alex Ferguson.

Gareth Bale helped Spurs banish the United hoodoo in September 2012 in a 3-2 away win that marked their first victory at Old Trafford since 1989.

The stats in our infographic show that this fixture loves goals. Both teams to score is a tight 8/15 but you might not get a surer thing than Mel B making an arse of herself on national television.

In the Red corner, we have a Manchester United side playing the free-flowing, goal-happy kinda stuff that’ll have Fergie looking on as proud as a certain red-nosed reindeer.

In the white corner, the baby-faced cherubic Argentinian out to remove that smug grin from van Gaal’s big Dutch head. Can the Spurs’ New Year Revolution start here?

Bring it on, folks, bring it bloody on.
