Man United vs Tottenham
The most high-profile fixture of Premier League gameweek 4 pits Manchester United against Tottenham.
Both sides will, of course, hope to be competing for a top-four berth come the close of the season, meaning they will no doubt be keen to get one over on their rivals as soon as possible.
Sunday’s clash also features the added spice of Jose Mourinho returning to Old Trafford.
The always vocal Mourinho maintains something of an unusual rivalry with his old club. Since Sir Alex Ferguson left in 2013, the Portuguese tactician has been the Red Devils’ most successful boss.
However, he was eventually sacked in late 2018, and would no doubt love to get one over on successor Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, especially given the fact that Spurs picked up just a point versus United last season.

Mourinho done moaning
Their trip to Old Trafford will also bring a close to an absolutely hectic Spurs schedule.
Last Sunday saw the Lilywhites face off with Newcastle in a league clash. This was followed by a League Cup outing on Tuesday, and a Europa League tie on Thursday.
Playing four high-profile games within the space of a week would, for obvious reasons, prove tough on any squad.
However, speaking ahead of his side’s meeting with United, Jose Mourinho assured that he is done moaning about Tottenham’s fixture list, and will not be using that, or anything else, as an excuse if the north Londoners come up short at Old Trafford:
“I am used to [the schedule being unfair].
“It’s the last one, the last match. I don’t want to moan. I moaned enough and I moaned with real things on my hands and I don’t think anyone disagreed with me.
“But now is only one more match, only the United match. And no excuses. They had only one match for the week and it was on Wednesday and probably the majority of the players who played are not going to play Sunday. But I won’t forget that.”
