Fireworks at Old Trafford as Mourinho’s revived Tottenham face struggling Manchester United side

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer-Jose Mourinho

Jose Mourinho has made the perfect start to his managerial reign at Tottenham and will be confident of picking all 3 points at Old Trafford on Wednesday night.

Mourinho has led Tottenham to three wins out of three and is eager to continue the winning streak against a reeling Manchester United team. So far, we can all agree that Mourinho has had the desired effect on this Tottenham team and will be the favourite when the two sides meet at the Theatre of Dreams.

For Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, this match is one of two crucial games that will decide his future. With both Pochettino and Allegri available, Ole’s reign as Manchester United manager may come to an end before the end of the year 2019. This epic clash will be live on SuperSport 3, you won’t want to miss it.

Over at the Bridge, Frank Lampard hopes to halt the run of poor results when his team welcomes Aston Villa on Wednesday night. The blues endured a frustrating afternoon last weekend against West Ham and even after outplaying the Hammers, the Frank Lampard’s young blues failed to score.

Chelsea aims to avoid a third straight Premier League defeat against a Villa team full of confidence. The game will also pitch Frank Lampard against Chelsea’s most decorated player, John Terry, who is an assistant coach at Villa. SuperSport 5 will broadcast all these Midweek games live on DStv.

Liverpool may not have the same energy as they did last season, but they definitely know how to get results. The Reds have won 5 out of their previous six matches and are out to record another victory over their bitter rivals, Everton.

The Toffees are two points above the relegation zone and it is certain that another defeat might see them slip into the red zone, and may also cost their manager Marco Silva, his job. This is more than just a midweek fixture, Everton will be fighting for their lives against their more successful neighbour, Liverpool.
