Gameweek 2 of the 2023–24 Premier League season will feature a highly-anticipated matchup: Tottenham Hotspur hosts Manchester United at their North London stadium on a Saturday night. United started the season with a disputed 1-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers, while Ange Postecoglou’s team drew 2-2 on the road against London rivals Brentford.
Spurs took on Brentford in their Premier League debut last weekend, where a humorous water supply issue delayed kickoff, and the team continued to play with Postecoglou’s progressive mentality despite the loss of Harry Kane, who is leaving for Bayern Munich. After the match got going, Spurs scored first thanks to Cristian Romero, but their defensive problems reared their ugly head again as Bryan Mbeumo and Yoane Wissa equalized for the Bees, who were without their own star striker, Ivan Toney, due to suspension.
A point apiece on the opening weekend was a fair outcome between two progressive and attack-minded head coaches, and now Postecoglou will shortly take command of his first home game in the Premier League thanks to a magnificent fourth from Emerson Royal. Spurs started the 2022–2023 Premier League season with five consecutive victories in front of their home fans, putting them in ninth place in the early standings after their 0-0 draw at Gtech Community Stadium in March.
Man United squeaked by Wolves on Monday night thanks to a Raphael Varane header, but Erik ten Hag had plenty of reasons to be concerned as Gary O’Neil’s team unleashed a flurry of unanticipated raids. Andre Onana was worth his salary for the most part, but he had to hold his breath for a few seconds in stoppage time as neither Simon Hooper nor VAR official Michael Salisbury thought his contact with Sasa Kalajdzic inside the box warranted a penalty.
The Red Devils, currently in seventh place in the Premier League, have won their past five games in a row. However, they finished the 2022–23 season with only three victories in their final ten games played against rival teams’ home fields. Despite the fact that Ten Hag’s team blew a two-goal lead to tie with the Lilywhites that day, Manchester United head to North London having won four of their last five meetings with Tottenham.
