Tottenham vs Manchester United 
Competition: English Premier League
Date: 10 April 2016Time: 16:00 BST
Venue: White Hart Lane, London 

Tottenham team lost ground in the title race as they were held to a 1-1 draw with Liverpool last time out and the Spurs are now seven points behind Premier League leaders. Anything less than three points could all but hand Leicester the title. Pochettino's men have only lost one game in their last 11 Premier League outings.
Erik Lamela is expected to return in the offensive midfield trio with Dele Alli and Eriksen, replacing Heung Min-Son. Kane will continue to lead the Tottenham attack. Changes are also unlikely in central midfield, with Eric Dier and Dembele the favoured pairing. Clinton N'Jie and Jan Vertonghen heave recently returned to training but they are unlikely to feature. Nabil Bentaleb remains out.
Manchester United have notched up back-to-back 1-0 victories over Man City and Everton in the Premier League in their last two games but they have also lost two of their last three away league games. As a result, Manchester United currently sit fifth in the Premier League table on 53 points. They are just one point shy of fourth-placed Manchester City and actually only five points off third-placed Arsenal.
Phil Jones, Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia are all now available for first-team selection. Daley Blind is expected to recover in time and to start the match alongside Matteo Darmian, Chris Smalling and Marcos Rojo in defense.  Juan Mata, Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial look set to form the attacking midfield trio once more, with Marcus Rashford the lone striker altough Rooney has been tipped to make his first appearance since February this weekend. Louis van Gaal is without Luke Shaw, Wayne Rooney, Will Keane and Bastian Schweinsteiger.
Man United team are undefeated in 31 of their last 33 matches against Spurs in all competitions. On the opening day of the season the two met in a close one at Old Trafford with United just edging it 1-0 with a Kyle Walker own goal the difference between the two sides. In the last three meetings between the two at White Hart Lane nothing could separate the pair with every match ending in a draw.
