Manchester United defender Eric Bailly could make his first league appearance since October after returning from injury in Thursday’s Europa League win.
Chris Smalling and Luke Shaw remain out, but Michael Carrick and Antonio Valencia are in contention after being rested for the trip to Ukraine.
Toby Alderweireld will be involved for Spurs after making his comeback from a knee injury against CSKA Moscow.
Erik Lamela and Vincent Janssen remain unavailable.
Guy Mowbray: “United used to have such dominance over Spurs that Sir Alex Ferguson’s pre-match team talk consisted of three words: ‘Lads, it’s Tottenham‘!
“Spurs went winless at Old Trafford from 1989 until the old master’s final season in 2012-13, but their ’89 success carries the coincidence of having been in December AND as part of United’s longest home run without winning before this one (six games).
“Draws have been the most common result for United at home and Spurs away this season, and another one will be a popular prediction.
“That would probably be enough to make Mauricio smile, but almost certainly not Jose. Then again, what does these days?!”
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho on needing more goals from Wayne Rooney: “In my team, he (Rooney) is an attacking player – he will play as a nine or a 10, or eventually coming from one of the sides.
“So as an attacking player, normally he scores more goals. We expect more goals from him, yes, but we expect more goals from everyone in the team.
“Maybe Zlatan (Ibrahimovic) is the one but as the main striker it is normal that he has more goals scored.
“But all the other attacking players, we expect more goals from them.”
Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino on Mourinho: “For me, he is the Special One and will always be the Special One.
“He was a reference when I started my career at Espanyol. He was always very kind to me and opened his door.
“Sometimes you struggle a bit – it’s not easy to arrive at a new club, set up ideas and philosophy but he was, is and will be one of the best managers in football history.”
The last time Tottenham came here in the league was the first game of last season, when they were unlucky to lose out to a Kyle Walker own goal.
I don’t see them losing on Sunday, though, and this is a really tough game for Manchester United.
