Tottenham Hotspur will host Manchester United in a match scheduled for Saturday evening at 17:30 BST, marking Manchester United’s first away game of the Premier League season.

Erik ten Hag’s team started their season with a victory, securing three points by defeating Wolves 1-0 through Raphael Varane’s header.

Manchester United has a favorable history at Spurs’ new stadium, having won twice and drawn twice in their four previous visits. They aim to continue this successful trend in their upcoming game in north London.

However, Ange Postecoglou and his team will pose a strong challenge as they enter a new phase without their star striker, Harry Kane.

How can you keep up with the match? The game will be broadcasted live on Sky Sports Main Event, Sky Sports Premier League, and Sky Sports Ultra HDR. The Match Day Live show on MUTV will begin at 16:25 BST, offering exclusive pre-match coverage leading up to the 17:30 BST kick-off, as well as post-match reactions.

Additional content will also be accessible on ManUtd.com and the United App, along with radio commentary during the entire 90-minute match. It’s worth noting that fans can also explore various ways to enjoy the excitement of the game, including as a convenient payment method, adding to the overall experience.

When can you watch the highlights? A two-minute highlight reel of the game will be available two hours after the match ends, along with condensed 90 in 20 and Full 90 versions that will be released on Sunday.

What’s the latest on the team news? Lisandro Martinez left the game against Wolves at halftime due to injury and was replaced by Victor Lindelof. Erik ten Hag will discuss the team’s status in his pre-match press conference, which will be broadcasted on Friday.

He might also provide updates on Rasmus Hojlund’s recovery from an injury he sustained while with Atalanta.

Amad, Kobbie Mainoo, and Tyrell Malacia are dealing with long-term injuries, while Dean Henderson and Anthony Martial made their return to the bench in the previous game.

Postecoglou is waiting for updates on Cristian Romero’s fitness after he was substituted following a head injury, and there are doubts regarding Fraser Forster and Tanguy Ndombele’s availability. Rodrigo Bentancur, Bryan Gil, and Ryan Sessegnon are currently sidelined due to knee, groin, and thigh injuries respectively.


Ange Postecoglou assumed the managerial role at Tottenham Hotspur in June, taking over three months after Antonio Conte’s departure.

Following Conte’s exit, Cristian Stellini and later Ryan Mason served as interim managers for the remainder of the season, resulting in Tottenham finishing eighth in the league standings and missing out on European competition.

Before 2017, Postecoglou primarily managed teams in Australia. He led the Socceroos during the 2014 World Cup and achieved success in the Asian Cup the following year. His successful stint with Yokohama Marinos in Japan caught the attention of Celtic in 2021.

During his time at Celtic, he won five out of six domestic trophies in his two seasons, endearing himself to the fans. This ultimately led to his move to Tottenham.


Arguably, one of Manchester United’s most remarkable performances of the season occurred when they dominated against Spurs at Old Trafford in October. Goals from Fred and Bruno Fernandes secured a convincing 2-0 victory, and the team could have scored even more given their dominance.

Six months later, a similar impressive display led to another two-goal lead for United during a match in north London. Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford found the net this time.

However, under Ryan Mason’s interim management, Spurs mounted a second-half comeback and salvaged a draw with goals from Pedro Porro and Son Heung-min.
