Manchester United vs Tottenham Hotspur - Competition: Premier League
Match date: Wednesday, 1 January 2014 - 17:30 GMT
Old Trafford, Manchester, United Kingdom

   Manchester United have won their last four Premier League games in a row (six consecutive victories in all competitions) but David Moyes’ men were a little lucky to come away with a win at Norwich as Danny Welbeck netted his fourth goal in five matches.Fellaini, Nani, Phil Jones and Rafael all remain sidelined while Rooney is set to return after missing Saturday’s trip to Hull City with a groin strain. Valencia is also available after serving his one-match suspension. Carrick is set to continue in midfield alongside Tom Cleverley, Tim Sherwood has collected seven points from a possible nine since taking over from Andre Villas-Boas. Tottenham’s away record is eye-catching, as the North London club have collected 20 points out of 10 games on their travels. 

   Tottenham Hotspur are level on points with United as they have bounced back from the sacking of Andre Villas-Boas with seven points from their last three games.
New boss Tim Sherwood has gone with a more attacking line-up since replacing Villas-Boas and he has been rewarded with victories over Southampton and Stoke as well as a draw against West Brom.
Tottenham's victory at Old Trafford last season was their first in 21 Premier League attempts and in the earlier fixture this season between the two sides at White Hart Lane honours were even after a 2-2 draw.
