Tottenham v Man Utd Betting Odds

Worryingly for Tottenham, however, their record against Manchester United is truly appalling with just one win in the last 20 meetings.

Manchester United visit Tottenham Hotspur this Sunday afternoon, looking to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League. But, intentional or not, David Beckham will once again be the focus of the media's attention even though he will not see a minute of action on the pitch.

Currently training with the North London club, Beckham has provided a distraction from the most important matter at hand and his mere presence may have unwittingly handed United an advantage going into this game.

Harry Redknapp has no further injuries worries following his side's FA Cup win over Charlton and will restore Rafael Van der Vaart, Luka Modric and Aaron Lennon to midfield. Sir Alex Ferguson, meanwhile, will be boosted by the return of Edwin Van der Sar, Nemanja Vidic and Wayne Rooney to his squad.

Despite accusations that they are not playing well, United have five wins from six and remain without defeat in the league and in Europe since last April. Although occasionally riding their luck in recent weeks, they have consistently had enough to extend their unbeaten streak and the question remains of when it will end.

Before a 2-1 reverse at Everton, Tottenham were on their own mini-unconquered run with no league losses in nine. Six wins in that time saw them elevated to the top four with a disheveled Chelsea slipping down the order. At White Hart Lane, Spurs have four wins in their last five, though Carlo Ancelotti's men would have inflicted a second home defeat of the season but for a penalty miss from Didier Drogba in the dying moments. A 1-1 final result was the fourth match ending all square at the Lane this term.

United's away form is dominated by seven draws from nine contests. Their only two wins on the road were less than convincing with Javier Hernandez stealing the winner on both occasions in the final 15 minutes.

Worryingly for Tottenham, however, their record against Manchester United is truly appalling with just one win in the last 20 meetings. That victory came back in 2001, since when the North Londoners have been turned over seven times by a visiting Sir Alex Ferguson side. United are the 6/4 favourites to pick up yet another win with Tottenham as big as 2/1 to end the hoodoo and the Draw a general 9/4.

Six of United's away fixtures have seen three goals or more and the Red Devils have failed to score just twice on their travels - these also the only occasions they have maintained a clean sheet.

Without a goal in their opening two home games, Spurs have scored in every subsequent appearance at White Hart Lane but have denied the opposition just three times. Despite this, seven home league contests have produced just two goals or fewer. Under 2.5 Goals can be backed at 4/5 with a 1-1 Correct Score available at 6/1.

Rafael Van der Vaart and Gareth Bale have been Spurs' top marksmen this term and are priced at 13/2 and 11/1 respectively to open the scoring. Dmitar Berbatov has scored just two of his 14 league goals this season outside of Old Trafford but is 11/5 to score at any time.

Counter-attacking wing play is the foundation of both these sides so backing in excess of 12 corners at around 11/10 may reward, with Spurs 6/5 to be awarded the most.
