Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur To Kick Off EPL Season

Published on August 8th, 2015 1:45 am EST
In just a few hours, Manchester United will play host to Tottenham Hotspur in the very first game of the English Premier League season.

Manchester United, after showing an uptick of improvement last season, will be looking to build on their momentum. Manchester United, along with Man City, Chelsea and Arsenal, are considered the four favourites to win the English Premier League this season. Manchester United, however, is generally regarded as being at least a couple of steps behind the likes of Chelsea and Man City.

Tottenham, on the other hand, has one of the game's brightest young stars (Harry Kane) on their side and will be looking to make some waves in the EPL this season.


Manchester United, which will be fielding the likes of Wayne Rooney, Memphis Depay and Juan Mata, are the current favourites to win on Saturday afternoon, as evidenced by these odds:

Man Utd, 1.61
Draw, 3.60
Tottenham, 6.00

According to these odds, Manchester United has a 62.11% chance of winning on Saturday afternoon, while Tottenham has a 16.67% chance of notching the win.


It will be important for Manchester United to get off to a strong start this season if they hope to keep pace with the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City.

Tottenham, on the other hand, doesn't stand much of a chance of winning the EPL this season (they are currently listed at 151.00 to win), though they do have hopes to earn a possible Champions League spot if the season goes well for them.
