Manchester United vs Tottenham 0-3 Highlights Download 27 August 2018 Premier League
Some late team news. Lamela appears to have sustained an injury in the warm up, and Luke Amos has taken his place on the bench for Tottenham. The teams are both making their ways out onto the pitch as I write, with kick-off just moments away!
Two changes from Pochettino, who has reverted to a back four after using a 3-5-2 system against Fulham. Rose and Dembele are the players who come in, with Davies and Sanchez dropping out. The latter is perhaps a surprise, and it means that Alderweireld – long linked with a move to United – starts alongside Vertonghen. Captain Lloris was arrested for drink driving last week, but the World Cup-winning goalkeeper retains his place.
TEAM NEWS – Tottenham substitutes: Davinson Sanchez, Harry Winks, Michel Vorm, Fernando Llorente, Serge Aurier, Ben Davies, Luke Amos.
TEAM NEWS – Tottenham (4-2-3-1): Hugo Lloris; Kieran Trippier, Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen, Danny Rose; Eric Dier, Mousa Dembele; Lucas Moura, Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen; Harry Kane.
It’s a big statement from Mourinho, who has gone for a much-changed starting XI following the horror show at Brighton. Eric Bailly was terrible against the Seagulls and drops out all together, as do Anthony Martial, Andreas Pereira and Juan Mata. Young and Lindelof are relegated to the bench, with Valencia, Matic, Lingard, Smalling, Jones and Herrera all coming in. Pogba, it seems, will play higher up the pitch.
TEAM NEWS – Manchester United substitutes: Victor Lindelof, Alexis Sanchez, Marcus Rashford, Lee Grant, Ashley Young, Marouane Fellaini, Scott McTominay.
TEAM NEWS – Manchester United (4-3-2-1): David De Gea; Antonio Valencia, Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, Luke Shaw; Ander Herrera, Nemanja Matic, Fred; Jesse Lingard, Romelu Lukaku, Paul Pogba.
