Team news

United defender Lisandro Martinez departed at half-time during the game against Wolves, but Erik ten Hag said he ‘thinks’ the player will be fit to face Spurs. Assuming Martinez is available, it means United are only expected to be without Tom Heaton, Tyrell Malacia, Kobbie Mainoo, Amad and Rasmus Hojlund for Saturday’s game.

Tottenham Hotspur are undecided over the fitness of defender Cristian Romero, who scored during his side’s draw with Brentford. The Argentine international faces a late fitness test ahead of the game. Fraser Forster and Tanguy Ndombele are doubts, while Rodrigo Bentancur, Bryan Gil and Ryan Sessegnon are all absent with injury.
