English Premier League:Manchester United vs.
Tottenham HotspurAugust 17, 2011 by Marc Jerbs

On Monday, the defending English Premier league champion Manchester United will host the Tottenham Hotspur at the Old Trafford. This would be the Red Devils' first game of the season at home.

Last Sunday, Manchester United opened its season on the road against West Brom. They overcame a shaky outing of rookie goalie David de Gea and lost both center halves Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand due to injuries.

Sir Alex Ferguson must find a way to help his prized goalie build his confidence as the season progresses. Expectations are too high for David de Gea as he replaces the ever dependable Edwin van der Sar.

This would be Tottenham Spurs' first game of the Premier League season. They would have to play their first game on the road against the Red Devils. The Spur could take advantage De Gea's poor showing in his last game and also the depleted lineup of the Red Devils in the centre half position.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed the Manchester United to beat the Tottenham Hotspurs at the Old Trafford. Tottenham may have a chance to steal a win if they could take advantage the miscues that David de Gea would encounter in the game.
