Half time! Tottenham 0-0 Manchester United

It has not been the most thrilling game with the best chance coming from Porro hitting the bar. A scrappy game with neither side really having the upper hand as of yet, all to play for in the second 45.

45 + 3 min: Udogie with a good bit of play but Kulusevski can’t get on the end of a pass.

45 + 1 min: Porro loses it at the back again, United can’t capitalise but that is not a confident play. Three minutes added.

45 min: It’s thundered in, it is initially repelled but it comes back in and Onana collects.

45 min: Kulusevski rattles a shot from outside the box but it is straight at Onana who easily saves. Sarr gets a free kick in a great position after a foul from Mount.

44 min: Maddison’s pass is almost intercepted but it does creep through, Spurs on the edge of the box once again. Richarlison tries to find Son but Wan-Bissaka crowds him out. Spurs still in possession.

42 min: Fernandes pops it in the box but Porro heads it down to his keeper to clear.

41 min: The free kick sets up a good Spurs chance. WOW! Son lays it off to Porro who smacks the bar. It comes down to Sarr who also rattles the woodwork, Tottenham so close to opening the scoring there.

40 min: Antony gets a yellow card for a foul on Bissouma, Spurs will have a free kick inside their own half. Fernandes has been given a yellow card for dissent after disagreeing with that call. The United captain is having a long chat with the referee here but the foul stands.

38 min: Oh my word, how has Fernandes not scored? He was given the ball on a plate for a feast of a goal but his header is miles over the bar. Awful. Spurs attack here, Richarlison is down in the box and he wants a penalty but nothing is given.

36 min: I can’t say a lot has happened in the last few minutes, latest is Udogie is offside quite high up the pitch.

34 min: Fernandes rifles off a shot but Romero blocks, it comes to Antony but his shot is over the bar. Wan-Bissaka gets a yellow for a foul on Son, Spurs have a free kick in their own half. They quickly take it but United soon win the ball back. So scrappy.

32 min: United in the box again but Rashford takes too much time on the ball and he is dispossessed – Spurs counter. A lovely bit of play slices through United, Sarr has a shot but Onana saves.

30 min: Richarlison works the ball well to a crossable position, it comes in but Varane clears. Boos then rain down as Bissouma thought he had won a foul but the decision goes against him.

28 min: Shaw over the corner ball, more things are being thrown at him. He eventually pops it in but Spurs eventually clear.

28 min: No penalty given against Romero, check over. Corner to come.

27 min: Rashford with a lovely run and lay off to Garnacho. He has a shot but it is deflected out or is it? I think they could be checking for a handball here. A possible penalty they are checking for. The deflection hits an arm.

26 min: United get in the box again but Fernandes’ shot is blocked by Bissouma. Spurs counter and Son gets the ball in a great position, he lays it off to Sarr – who should have taken the shot – but he passes to Kulusevski, his shot is collected by Onana.

24 min: Rashford is dispossessed but possession exchanges hands. United eventually come away with it, Fernandes pops a peach of a ball to Rashford but his shot it over the bar. I think he would have been offside even if it went in.

22 min: Fernandes takes the corner kick but Spurs are able to clear. Onana is a long way out of his goal, he puts in a beautiful ball which sets up a United attack.

21 min: Antony tries to do too much with fancy footwork and Spurs win it back. But Udogie give away a free kick, Fernandes takes it and it catches Spurs off guard with Rashford picking up the ball – it’s deflected out for a corner.

20 min: A lot of patient build-up play from Spurs and Bissouma is fouled by Casemiro – free kick. Maddison is over the set piece but again it’s headed away, this time by Martinez.

18 min: Maddison pops it in but Varane heads away. Spurs still in possession though.

17 min: Maddison crosses the corner in but Sarr’s connection is straight out. Spurs having a good spell Kulusevski beats Shaw and it results in another corner.

16 min: Udogie went down but the referee is having none of it, it looked like a dive but he is limping as he gets back to his feet. Spurs come forward and win a corner.

15 min: A good chance for Rashford there, he finds himself in a one-on-one with Vicario but the goalkeeper does enough to put him off, he repels the England forward’s shot. Garnacho has a shot but it’s blocked. Malc has emailed and said: “I think I can top Philip in Paris’s sophistication. I am watching the game in Germany, drinking Spanish beer, watching an American stream and my girlfriend is making pizza.” An amalgamation there!

13 min: The game has become a bit stop start now, the flow of it ebbed away slightly.

11 min: Shaw takes the corner, Spurs fans are throwing things at him I think, and he pops it in – the resulting shot is over the bar but it’s deflected for another corner. Mount takes this one, who also gets paper cups thrown at him, but Varane’s header is over.

9 min: Antony passes a peach of a ball to Garnacho, he lays it off to Shaw but Porro challenges him with a well-timed tackle but does concede a corner.

8 min: Fernandes is back to his feet and he is limping to the sidelines after getting treatment. He will be on the sidelines for 20 seconds under new rules but I think he will be okay to continue.

7 min: Porro tries to find Maddison but Varane cuts out the pass. Fernandes is down here after a tackle with Porro, he needs to receive treatment.

6 min: Shaw barges Kulusevski off the ball, a boo from the crowd, but they build. The ball comes to Garnacho but his shot is straight at Vicario.

4 min: Tottenham play out the back once again but Porro loses out to Mount, Antony’s resulting shot is wide. Philip has got in touch and said: “Just got back from 3 weeks’ holiday to find a bumper harvest of ripe grapes in my Paris region garden. So that’s my go-to “snack” for this game as I cheer on Spurs to pip the Red Devils.” Oh where were you on holiday? I think that’s the most sophisticated snack I’ve heard for a long while.

2 min: A slow start from Tottenham as they run the ball through their back line, the passes well controlled though and it propels them forward. Kulusevski crosses and it reaches Son but he can’t control.

Kick-off! Tottenham 0-0 Manchester United

Here we go! Can Tottenham get a win in their first home league game of the season? Or will United spoil the party? All to come!

The players will be out at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium shortly, who do you have winning this one? Let me know your thoughts.

Tottenham boss Ange Postecoglou added at his presser: “It is a great challenge for us. The most important thing for us is that it is our first home game in the Premier League. Obviously last week we showed some really good characteristics in terms of our resilience. Tomorrow is all about showing a little bit more of our football against a really strong opponent. We want to try and impose our game style, and that has got to be our goal every week now, to see if we can improve our football and make an impact against the best teams. That is our challenge tomorrow.”

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag was asked about Harry Maguire in his press conference. He said: “It’s up to him [how much he plays]. He knows what to expect from me. I’ve been here for one year now and you know what I expect from a centre half. And he can do it, I’ve told you many times before he has the ability to do it so now he has to show it. It is then about character, to be convinced to play that role, he has all the abilities to do it and it is up to him when the time [opportunity] is there.”

James has got involved in the snack chat and said: “I’m not going as posh as Fruit Pastilles: I think there’s half a Twix that my son forgot about in his backpack that I may snaffle later. The real issue is what we have for breakfast tomorrow while watching the World Cup final: my Spanish wife and I have been having high-level discussions about this all week.” Ah the rivalry will be strong tomorrow! The final should be a cracking game so you have to bring your best snack game too.

A fun fact for you, though not so fun if you are a Tottenham supporter, Spurs have only won one of the last nine Premier League outings against Manchester United. Can they turn the tide today?

I’ve just finished off a coffee and I’m thinking my snack of choice for this match will be some Fruit Pastilles, the purple one is my favourite. What are you snacking on in this fixture? Let me know via Twitter or email. Joe has already let me know what he’s got cooking: “I have no snack chat today, but I did just put some chicken thighs in a Peruvian marinade for dinner later today. It’s the aji amarillo paste that really seals the deal!”

The transfer window is coming to a close at the start of September and you can catch up with all the movements:

Another story that has been in the football news this week is Manchester United’s decision around whether or not to bring back Mason Greenwood. Jonathan Liew has written a piece on which you can read:

Tottenham team news

Ange Postecoglou has made two changes to their team who drew with Brentford. Skipp and Emerson are out for Pedro Porro and Sarr.

Starting XI: Vicardo, Pedro Porro, Romero, Van de Ven, Udogie, Sarr, Bissouma, Maddison, Kulusevski, Richarlison, Son.


Hello and welcome to Tottenham v Manchester United! The visitors will be looking to use their win to continue momentum in the new season while the hosts are searching for theirs first victory of the new campaign.

Last time out Tottenham drew 2-2 with Brentford while Man United secured a 1-0 win over Wolves. The victory was slightly controversial as Wolves were not awarded a penalty that should have been given.

Some transfer chat in the build-up to this game has centred on Harry Maguire. The former United captain had been linked with a £30m West Ham move but that has since fallen through with the defender set to fight for his place at the Red Devils. Manager Erik ten Hag has said he is happy Maguire is staying but has remarked he needs to improve.

In terms of who is available for the match Tottenham have Cristian Romero as an option after he was passed fit despite going off last time out. And United have been boosted by Lisandro Martinez being fit and available.

The two teams will be releasing their team news shortly so stay tuned before kick-off at 5.30pm BST.
