Philippe Coutinho’s possible move to Manchester United is the surprise saga of this January’s transfer window.

The former Liverpool man has fallen down the picking order and he is struggling for game time at Barcelona.

Coutinho’s problems were recently compounded when Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde called on him to improve his performances.

However, Coutinho isn’t keen on leaving Barcelona just yet.

That doesn’t mean he is against the idea of joining Manchester united. But he has one condition which must be met.

Sources close to the Brazilian understand that Coutinho would want to be given time to try and make things work at Barcelona.

In other words, he wants his decision to stay at Barcelona to be respected by other clubs before he decides for certain to leave Spain.

The heavyweight clash of the weekend sees
Tottenham entertain a rejuvenated Man United side thriving since replacing Jose Mourinho with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Mauruchio pochettino and Ole gunnar go head to head as Tottenham host Manchester united in a super sunday classic at Wembley Stadium.

Pochettino remains the No1 candidate to become Utd permanent manager this summer after jose Mourinho dramatic sacking in December.

Ole Gunnar meanwhile, seems to have brought back the glory days to the theatre of dreams with United playing with confidence in recent weeks – But they meet a Tottenham side with real style and substance as spurs sits third in the premier league table.

It’s difficult match to predict in many ways, with both sides a little unpredictable at times. It is Spurs who are understandably favourites, though.

Here are three key battles dockaysworld selects which could determine who picks up all three points on the day.

 

Dele Alli vs Paul Pogba

Paul Pogba has been a revelation since the arrival of ole gunnar, The world cup winner has been an integral core in the Heart of United midfield dictating the play as well as creating a solid defensive base.

The play maker has also provided the amunitions needed in the final thrid providing 4Goals and 3assist. But on sunday he will be up against Dele Alli with the English man being one of the finest player England has produced in the last 20years.

We saw against Chelsea how the Spurs man pressed Jorgingo right from the start, a battle which eventually proved pivotal to spurs victory.

It should be an enthralling match-up between two prodigiously gifted footballers, and keeping each other quiet will be very much the order of the day.

 

Harry Kane vs Victor Lindelof.

After enduring such a torturous first year or so at man utd, victor lindelof is finally starting to look the part in a United  shirt.

There is a new-found confidence to his play, and the constant errors that were tarnishing his performances have decreased significantly.

Kane has shown than he is not just a flash in the pan he has scored 60+goals over the last two seasons and his clever movement, intricate link-up play and deadly finishing make him a nightmare for any centre-back.

Spurs’ star striker has been a huge reason for their surprise title challenge this season, and in a game of huge importance, they need him to deliver once again.

 

Toby Alderweireld Vs Marcus Rashford.

Another player who seems to have been revitalised under ole gunnar is certainly Rashford.

The Englishman has been used as a false nine under ole, and has excel voraciously in this role, but on sunday he will be up against one of the premier league best center back in Alderweireld.

He is one of the few defenders in the league who will feel he can just about match Rasford’s speed, and his positional sense will not allow the Utd man to run riot in the manner he has in other matches.

This will be Rashford’s biggest test yet under ole gunnar and if he gives Alderweireld the run around from start to finish, it will be further evidence to suggest that the Reds have a very special player in their ranks.
