The home side have won none of their last 21 Premier League games against the Red devils (D5 L16) and have also failed to find the back of the net in 13 of their last 20 meetings in the league.
Harry Redknapp’s men also come into the game on the back of a 5-2 thrashing by Arsenal after falling apart having been 2-0 up.
That makes United look a solid punt at the odds on offer, especially as Wayne Rooney is fit and ready for action after recovering from a throat infection that ruled him out of the last two games and England’s friendly against Holland in midweek.
Wazza, who made his PL debut against Spurs, has netted scored six goals in his last seven outings against them.
He is a 6 chance with Boylesports and Paddy Power to score first, and available at 2.6 with Paddy Power to net anytime in the 90 minutes.
Both look value, but the latter makes most appeal from a punting perspective.
Another player with a great scoring record against the Lilywhites is the evergreen Ryan Giggs who came to the rescue last weekend with his last gasp winner against Norwich.
Giggsy has scored more goals against Spurs than versus any other side (10) in his illustrious career and that makes the 17 available with bet365 and Paddy Power in the first goalscorer market look worthy of a small wager.
Whoever scores, United really should prove too strong for their opponents.
They have the best away record in the top flight – having only tasted defeat once all season at the hands of Newcastle – and have now won five of their last six games which included wins over Arsenal and Liverpool.
Sir Alex Ferguson’s side are beginning to string results together in an ominous fashion, and I expect them to register a comfortable victory.
For those that like to play in the correct score market, I like the look of 3-1 at odds of 21 with Betfred.
