As the January transfer window is about to be closed, every Premier League teams are focusing back on the field. In the 25th round, two heavy-weights, Tottenham Hotspurs and Manchester United will come face-to-face.

The fixture will be played at Tottenham’s interim home ground, Wembley Stadium, on January 31. The match will be in the spotlight this weekend as the other top teams have easy teams to play against.

Manchester United is at the second spot with 53 points, 12 points less than the league leaders, Manchester City. Jose Mourinho, Man United boss, has a good record against Tottenham manager, Mauricio Pochettino.

Jose has already said that it’s impossible to win the title now, but they’ll try to win each and every game.

Tottenham is at the fifth spot with 45 points. Pochettino and Co. will have so much to lose in this match. Because of the bad performance against top clubs, Pochettino has been lambasted many times this season. The win in the 25th round will take them to the fourth spot if Liverpool - the fourth spot team - loses their game in the same round.

Both the teams last met in the last October where Manchester United gathered all three points after a 1-0 win at home.

This time, Tottenham will play at their interim home ground and a second defeat against Man United in the same season will hurt them dearly. If they lose, the fifth spot team, Arsenal can overtake them on the points table if Arsenal wins in the same round.

What to expect

Undoubtedly, the match will be seen worldwide. The match will be action-packed as both teams have dynamic players in their squad.

Both the teams have potential to change the game at any moment.

Both the teams will play with a fear of giving up their current position if they lose since Chelsea is trailing Man Utd with 50 points and Arsenal is trailing Tottenham with 42 points. The top-6 spot in the Premier League this season is packed very tightly. A single defeat can drag a team further down on the points table.

Jose will certainly put his brand-new signing, Alexis Sanchez, in the playing-11. Jose took Alexis from Arsenal in a swap-deal. Jose swapped Alexis with Arsenal by giving them his player Henrikh Mkhitaryan. Alexis Sanchez is now one of the highest per-week wage earners in the soccer world after joining Man Utd.

Possible lineups

The Portuguese manager, Jose Mourinho, is likely to make major changes from his last playing-11 against Yeovil Town in the FA Cup. He can bring Pogba, De Gea, and Lukaku back in the playing-11 against Tottenham.

De Gea. Valencia, Jones, Rojo, Young, Pogba, Matic, Mata, Lingard, Sanchez, Lukaku.
