Martin Keown is predicting that Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur play out a 2-2 draw on Monday night.

The Red Devils will welcome Spurs to Old Trafford in search of an immediate return to winning ways.

Manchester United suffered a surprise 3-2 loss to Brighton and Hove Albion last weekend to heap pressure on Jose Mourinho.

Spurs, meanwhile, have won their opening two Premier League games against Newcastle United and Fulham.

Manchester United have managed to win their last two meetings against Spurs at Old Trafford by a 1-0 margin.

However, former Arsenal defender Keown is backing Manchester United and Spurs to play out a 2-2 draw on Monday night.

“I can see this being a cracker,” Keown told the Daily Mail.

“There will be a reaction from the Old Trafford faithful after the Brighton defeat and they will be expecting United to attack. 

“

With the likes of Lukaku, Pogba and Rashford they have players who can hurt Tottenham. 

The problem is that their central defensive partnership looks loose.

“They do not seem solid or confident. For that reason I’m going for a 2-2 draw.”

Manchester United finished in second place in the Premier League table last season and a place above Spurs.

The Red Devils were 2-1 winners against Tottenham in the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley last season before suffering a 1-0 loss to Chelsea FC in the showpiece.

Manchester United signed Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred, FC Porto defender Diogo Dalot and Stoke goalkeeper Lee Grant in the summer transfer window.

Tottenham, on the other hand, failed to make a signing in the summer transfer market.
