Matchday 2 of the Premier League has one of its most attractive duels in London when Tottenham clashes with Manchester United, two of the most powerful teams in English soccer.
The Spurs are coming from a 2-2 draw with Brentford, one of the toughest rivals in the league, with goals from Cristian “Cuti” Romero and Emerson Royal.
The Red Devils started with a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Wolverhampton, thanks to a goal by French defender Raphael Varane.

¿Por qué apostar por el Tottenham?
After the whirlwind that was Antonio Conte last season as coach and without Harry Kane, Tottenham bet on a not so well known coach, like the Australian Ange Postecoglou, and gave continuity to a roster that remained in debt.
The Spurs drew 2-2 with Brentford in the first Premier League matchday, a valuable point considering that the rival is a very tough team that aspires to qualify for European competitions. New signings such as goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario, winger Destiny Udogie, defender Micky van de Ven, and midfielder James Maddison saw action and showed interesting qualities, which may excite the fans who are waiting for Kane’s replacement since the striker in the last meeting was a, still poor, Richarlison.
Last season the Londoners finished eighth, with 63 goals conceded, the worst record among the top 10 in the league, so the coach will bet on the central pairing of Van de Ven and Cristian Romero, who was out with a concussion against Brentford.
Postecoglou will be without Uruguayan midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur and winger Ryan Sessegnon.
¿Por qué apostar por el Manchester United?
Manchester United showed signs of improvement during the last season with the arrival of coach Erik ten Hag, who imprinted an idea of the game and got in Casemiro the positive leader the club needed on the pitch, maximizing the performances of players such as Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford.
The Red Devils kicked off the Premier League with a 1-0 victory over Wolves at Old Trafford, after a goal from French defender Raphael Varane and a great defensive performance from the team as a whole.
191 million euros were spent in the market for United and they got goalkeeper André Onana, midfielder Mason Mount, and striker Rasmus Hojlund, who could be fundamental pieces in the starting team, but the latter is injured.
The departure of defender Harry Maguire to West Ham it’s in a tightrope, as well as the future of midfielder Donny van de Beek, who should leave the club to get some playing time.
Final Betting Analysis: Tottenham vs. Manchester United
Although Tottenham had some interesting aspects in their game, there are still many doubts about the defensive level of the team coached by Postecoglou. Meanwhile, Manchester United also has many issues, but they were victorious against a team that is awful at defining chances.
