Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Red Devils welcome Jose Mourinho’s Spurs to Old Trafford in a contest that could prove to have significant consequences in the race for the top four come the end of the Premier League season.
Tottenham have played twice this week already, beating Chelsea on penalties in the Carabao Cup and then thrashing Maccabi Haifa in the Europa League, while Man Utd only had to play once, thrashing Brighton 3-0 in the League Cup.
However, despite United probably being the fresher side, Wright is not impressed with Solskjaer’s side so far this season and fancies Tottenham to come out on top at Old Trafford.
‘Man United, they looked to me, when I saw them against Brighton and against Palace, they’ve reverted back to life before Bruno Fernandes got here,’ Wright told Premier League Productions.
‘You see strikers, like Dominic Calvert-Lewin, [Neal] Maupay, [Jamie] Vardy, they’ve not got a striker who’s always in there, in that six yard box, ready to score, at Man United I don’t see that. Spurs have got it with Harry Kane.
‘United, they’ve got to create a lot, things have got to happen, they’ve got to play very well for this movement to happen and someone to be in there to finish it.
‘I just feel that Mourinho will probably do something that’s going to nullify them, cause them problems and frustrate them, and they’ve got Harry Kane so they’ll only need one chance.’
The former Arsenal and England striker is not impressed with United, but does feel Spurs are going in the right direction thanks to their summer signings.
‘There is something bubbling at Spurs, they’re starting to get pieces in place,’ he said.
‘[Sergio] Reguilon looks magnificent, we know what Matt Doherty’s capable of, something’s happening at Spurs that you feel like they’ve not finished doing business.’
The huge clash takes place at 4.30pm on Sunday.
