Manchester United return to Premier League action this Sunday afternoon, when we welcome Tottenham Hotspur to Old Trafford, and one MUTV pundit has made his predictions.

You can join fellow Reds by submitting your United Predictions in the App. Your expected XI must be entered by 15:00 GMT but you have until the first whistle at 16:30 GMT to make the rest of your calls. 

There are prizes up for grabs and those who predict the starting line-up, first scorer, final score and Man of the Match for the game could be in with a chance of winning.

We spoke to MUTV pundit and previous Premier League winner Wes Brown, who provided his forecast for the Old Trafford bout, which you can find below…


The former Reds defender lifted numerous trophies and collected countless wins during his time at Old Trafford, so knows precisely what is required to clinch victory in today’s clash.

He’s backing Ten Hag’s side to return to winning ways in the Premier League, and here is the squad he thinks will be taking on that task…

Line-up: Onana; Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Evans, Dalot; Fernandes (c), Mainoo, Eriksen; Garnacho, Hojlund, Rashford.

First scorer: Bruno Fernandes

Correct score: United 2 Tottenham 1

Man of the Match: Raphael Varane


Many fans have already submitted their picks ahead of the fixture against Spurs but, contrary to Wes, around a third (34%) of those who have submitted so far believe that Rasmus Hojlund will step up to collect his second league goal at Old Trafford. 

However, some agree to an extent with our pundit’s call, as the top five score predictions all have the Reds down to win, and almost a third (27%) believe captain Bruno Fernandes will have a big say in the outcome, having picked him for the Man of the Match award rather than first goalscorer.

You can see our fans’ full set of predictions below…


34% = Rasmus Hojlund
27% = Alejandro Garnacho
20% = Marcus Rashford
10% = Bruno Fernandes
3% = Scott McTominay
