The Red Devils head to the game following a 3-2 loss to Brighton last weekend.

United have won 21 of their 26 home EPL matches against Spurs, including victories in each of the last four encounters without conceding a goal.

Midfielder, Nemanja Matic and captain, Antonio Valencia have been in training for more than a week and could give Mourinho a boost by making themselves fit to feature on Monday, meaning that Andreas Pereira and Luke Shaw may make way.

Defenders, Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof came under criticism for their display against Brighton, but it remains to be seen whether Phil Jones or Chris Smalling will be recalled to the starting lineup.

Forward, Jesse Lingard appears ready to start for the first time since the World Cup after he was given time to recover from fitness.

Meanwhile, Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham Hotspur head to the game after defeating Fulham 3-1 last weekend at home.

Pochettino has no new injury worries in his squad ahead of the clash and may well opt to go with a settled starting lineup.

Spurs went with a back three against Fulham, utilizing the strengths of Ben Davies and Kieran Trippier out wide, while also featuring the likes of Davinson Sanchez, Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld into the squad.

Goalkeeper, Hugo Lloris was arrested for an alleged drink-driving offence on Friday morning, which could potentially mean a rare start for Michel Vorm.
