Few months after his unceremonious exit from Manchester United, Jose Mourinho is back at Old Trafford, a place he once referred to as home.

The Portuguese manager will be leading a Tottenham team which now looks rejuvenated and will hope to extend their winning streak in the new dispensation.

While Spurs seem to have turned things around with the hiring of Mourinho, the reverse is the case with the Red Devils who continue to falter under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Spurs have won both of their Premier League games since Mourinho’s appointment, and have leapfrogged United in the table. Should Solskjær’s side muster a win over their visitors, they would edge back ahead by a single point.
