A dramatic injury-time penalty gave Manchester United their first win of the Premier League (PL) campaign, making it their sixth league game from the previous eight to have featured a penalty (for/against). They have now scored in 15 straight PL matches, but remain without a clean sheet in both games this season – and haven’t gone three PL games without a clean sheet since a run of 14 that ended on Boxing Day 2019.
United lost their opening home fixture, but haven’t gone winless in their first two PL home games since 1996/97 (D2), or lost both since 1986/87. Worryingly though, United are winless in their last three PL home matches (D2, L1), each time conceding the opener.
Crazy scheduling means Tottenham Hotspur will play their third game in a week here, but they arrive unbeaten in six competitive matches (W5, D1) – including a win via penalties, and discounting a walkover. Furthemore, Spurs are undefeated in eight of their last nine league matches (W5, D3, L1), scoring first in five.
However, Tottenham have kept just two clean sheets across their last 27 PL away games – both against now-relegated teams from 2019/20. Furthermore, José Mourinho is searching for his first away win in seven attempts against teams he previously managed (D2, L4). A result either way beckons though, as none of the last 14 PL H2Hs held here have ended level.
Players to watch: United’s David de Gea has saved just two of the 29 PL penalties he’s faced, the second-lowest saving rate amongst goalkeepers to have faced 25+ penalties.
Tottenham’s Harry Kane has five PL assists, his second-best return in a PL campaign behind seven in 2016/17, and the joint-most after the opening three matchdays.
Hot stat: Since the start of last season, United’s PL games have produced 20 penalties, the most by any team (15 for and five against).
