Three things to look out for this weekend
Jose Mourinho's last stand?
1 Will Mourinho's men put on a United front?
Last Saturday afternoon, with Manchester United 1-0 up against Wolves and heading for a fourth straight win, all was rosy in Jose Mourinho's Old Trafford garden.
A second-half Wolves equaliser, a League Cup exit against Derby and a very public dust-up with Paul Pogba later, and how the landscape has changed.
Now United head to West Ham for the biggest game of Mourinho’s season with the Not-So-Special One backed in to 3-1 favourite from
8-1 to be the first Premier League manager axed.
2 Spurs to hit Huddersfield with the old one-two
Exactly three goals is, fittingly, a 3-1 chance at the John Smith’s Stadium and certainly a number that Spurs' supporters are getting used to.
There have been exactly three goals in six of Tottenham’s eight matches this season. Five of those six – including four of their last five games – have ended in 2-1 scorelines and Huddersfield have not scored more than once in their last 16 Premier League attempts.
A 2-1 Spurs win is 15-2.
3 St Andrew's stalemate looks a banker
The weekend’s draw banker? Look no further than St Andrew’s, where stalemate experts Birmingham and Ipswich will surely share the spoils.
Loss-averse Birmingham have drawn six of their nine matches so far, including all four at home, and have a nasty habit of underachieving against lesser sides.
They haven’t beaten a bottom-half team since a 1-0 win at Bolton in April, their three subsequent wins coming against promoted Fulham, Sheffield United and, last week, Leeds.
Winless Ipswich are very definitely bottom-half (and only spared being rock-bottom on goal difference) have drawn five times this term and six of their last ten in total.
