Jose Mourinho returns to Old Trafford this Wednesday as the Spurs face Manchester United in the Premier League.
The Red Devils continue their tough Premier League campaign with a huge test against Tottenham. Solskjaer's team comes from another disappointing 2-2 draw performance against Aston Villa at Old Trafford, as the team showed again how fragile they are in their defensive sector. United have failed to keep a clean sheet in any of their last nine Premier League matches, winning just 3 of their last 10. Despite Man Utd's Vice Chairman Ed Woodward claim that Solskjaer is a centerpiece in the club's strategy for the future, the pressure coming from the stands continues to rise. The Red Devils are already eight points behind the Top-4 and a bad result this Wednesday will mean they could be almost out of their main goal for this season in such a short period of the competition.

Since Mourinho's arrival, the Spurs won all the 3 matches played, showing signs of improvement. For the Premier League, the team showed impressive performances, opening a 3 goal advantage in the two games played against West Ham and Bournemouth. The team finished the games with difficulties, winning by minimum margins. This game marks the return of Mourinho to Old Trafford and the Portuguese coach will want to show that United made a huge mistake by firing him almost 1 year ago. As the Red Devils, Tottenham are also in the pursuit of the Top-4 and a good result at Old Trafford will be a huge boost for the team.

Both teams are well below expectations this season, but Tottenham is in better shape after Mourinho's appointment.
