Tottenham Hotspur hosts Manchester United in a clash of two big six clubs that are anything but big right now. It is widely considered that Tottenham are a complete hot mess right now, but they are ahead of United right now in the table.

Both badly need a win right now, but I’m not feeling confident enough to pick either side at this time.
