Manchester United vs Tottenham: Picking a Combined XI Prior to Wednesday's Clash

Manchester United vs Tottenham: Picking a Combined XI Prior to Wednesday's Clash

Tottenham Hotspur turned to Mourinho after dismissing Mauricio Pochettino last month, while Arsenal and Watford have subsequently sacked Unai Emery and Quique Sanchez Flores.

Current Real Madrid attacker Bale is a big fan of Mourinho's appointment at Spurs and expects him to be a real driving force for them.

"It's that time of year".

"If I tell you that I didn't speak with Mr Levy about Eriksen, Alderweireld and Vertonghen, I would be lying", he admitted.

Meanwhile, Spurs have shown improvement since the arrival of Jose Mourinho and they will fancy their chances here.

He's started well with three wins from his opening three games in charge and his team travel to Manchester United on Wednesday night. Scott McTominay and Nemanja Matic are "touch and go".

"This is a closed chapter for me", said Mourinho, who has won all three of his matches in charge of Spurs. "I left the club, I took my time to process everything that happened", Mourinho said.

When asked for his opinion on United, he said: "It is not for me to analyse United now".

A move for Pogba may cost them a reported 120 million euros but they might be willing to spend that much amount for a player like Pogba. "For me that is the important thing".

A selection of Spurs supporters on social media are convinced that Bale is hinting he wants a return to Spurs and are excited by his comments.

This is because Manchester United have stuck with Paul Pogba. I went back as a pundit and I was humbled by such a lovely reception.

"Tomorrow I go back as the coach of the team that will try to beat Manchester United".
