Tottenham Hotspur vs. Manchester United live stream: Time, TV schedule and how to watch the EPL online

Sunday’s early Premier League kickoff sees Spurs play host to Manchester United.

Manchester United got off to a wobbly start to the season, though the Red Devils have quickly found form and now look like a dangerous Premier League side once again. Heading into Saturday’s game away at Tottenham Hotspur, Louis van Gaal’s outfit sit comfortably in a Champions League spot, three points clear of fourth-placed Southampton, and four of West Ham United.

However, though Spurs are down in a rather underwhelming seventh place heading into the round, they are only a couple of points adrift of the final Champions League qualification place. Three consecutive wins — though far from hardly convincing, as is Spurs’ wont — have moved Mauricio Pochettino’s side up into the European mix, and with home advantage, they may well fancy their chances of nicking a result.

Key player - Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur)

This season is proving to be a breakout one for Spurs striker Harry Kane. With Emmanuel Adebayor — who has been on leave in Africa for personal reasons — looking unlikely to make a first team return any time soon, and Roberto Soldado unlikely to find the net any time ever, the 21-year-old has been thrust into Spurs’ attack. So far, he’s taking his chance. He’ll look to add to his 13 goals in all competitions against United’s shaky defence.

Key matchup - Erik Lamela vs. Ashley Young

Erik Lamela had a disappointing start to life at Tottenham Hotspur, and was essentially frozen out of White Hart Lane in his first season. However, he’s started to make up for lost time under Pochettino, and has established himself as a fixture in his compatriot’s first team. Against makeshift wing-back Ashley Young, he could cause big problems in this match.

Tottenham Hotspur injuries and suspensions

Out: None. In doubt: None.

Manchester United injuries and suspensions

Out: Daley Blind (knee), Marcos Rojo (thigh). In doubt: Marouane Fellaini, Adnan Januzaj (illness), Luke Shaw, Ander Herrera (ankle), Ángel Di María (pelvis).

Spurs head into this game in the pleasantly surprisingly position of having no injury concerns at all. The same can’t be said of United, with midfielder Daley Blind and defender Marcos Rojo both definitely out, potentially to be joined on the sidelines by Marouane Fellaini, Adnan Januzaj, Luke Shaw, Ander Herrera and Ángel Di María.
