Tottenham needed VAR penalty to prevail over Chelsea in midweek and will now face another top 6 side in the face of Manchester United. They are occupying 3rd place at the moment and are six points away from leaders Liverpool. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is enjoying a perfect start at the helm of Manchester United and he became the first manager in their history to start with five wins in a row. Currently sitting 6th in the standings, they are just 6 points away from 4th placed Chelsea and pretty much are back in the battle for a top 4 finish, something unthinkable just a few weeks earlier.
