Kick-off is at 18h30 CAT
Tottenham Hotspur will square off with Manchester United in an English Premier League match at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on March 15.
Spurs were held to a 1-1 draw by Burnley away in their previous league game which was played on March 7.
They are now winless in three matches in the league having registered one draw and two defeats against Chelsea, and Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Spurs recorded a defeat against Wolves in their last home league match, but prior to that, they had won two league games in a row at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Meanwhile, United secured a 2-0 win over Manchester City at home in their previous league game which was played on March 8.
The win stretched the Red Devils’ unbeaten run to five matches in the league having recorded two draws and three defeats.
They are undefeated in their last two away matches having registered a draw with Everton and a victory over Chelsea.
Scott McTominay, the United midfielder, says they should not get carried away after defeating City as they look to maintain their good form in the Premier League.”We have won a game today, fantastic, but it is the next one and the next one after that. We can’t get too carried away we have to keep going and keep pushing for the Champions League,” McTominay said.
“Credit to the boys – they were top drawer today. We had a sticky first 15-20 mins but you can see how much it means to the boys. It is a game we have to take confidence from but, in the coming weeks, we have to really go for some proper results and keep this run going.”
The last league meeting between Tottenham and United was on the 4th of December 2019.
The Red Devils secured a 2-1 win over Spurs in an encounter which was played at the Old Trafford Stadium.
Timo Werner: Chelsea agree deal in principle to sign RB Leipzig striker

Chelsea have agreed a deal in principle to sign Timo Werner from RB Leipzig.
The Germany international striker has a €55m (£49.4m) release clause which expires on Monday June 15.
Chelsea have offered a £200,000-a-week contract to Werner, who also interested Liverpool and Manchester United.

He had publicly indicated his preference to move to Premier League leaders Liverpool but they were unwilling to pay the release clause in the current climate.

That allowed Chelsea to move in for their number one forward target, and the 24-year-old is happy to play for Frank Lampard's side. His priority has always been to sign for a Champions League club where he can play regularly.
Werner is set to join Hakim Ziyech, who is joining from Ajax for £33m on July 1, as new additions at Stamford Bridge this summer following their transfer ban being lifted by FIFA in December last year.
Chelsea were unable to sign players last year and opted not to bring in any acquisitions in January, instead focusing on their main targets this summer.
The club are also interested in bringing in a new left-back, with Leicester's Ben Chilwell their number one target.

Analysis: No surprise Werner in such high demand
Sky Sports' Nick Wright...
"Werner's name has long been linked with Liverpool, but they were not the only Premier League club said to be monitoring him.
"It is hardly surprising that he is a player in demand. Over the course of the last four years with RB Leipzig, the 24-year-old has established himself as one of the most exciting young players in the Bundesliga.
"This season has been his best yet, with 31 goals scored in 40 games so far, taking his overall total for RB Leipzig to 92 in 154 appearances. For the German national side, he boasts a total of 11 goals in 29 games.
"His RB Leipzig tally for this season includes four goals in the Champions League, one of which came during Leipzig's 1-0 win at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in February.

• Werner on target as Leipzig return to third
• Thommo: Werner would challenge Liverpool front three
• Leipzig dominate to knock hapless Spurs out of CL
"The majority of Werner's goals have come from the central striking position this season, but he is tactically flexible - RB Leipzig have used nine different formations in the Bundesliga this season - and he is also comfortable playing in wide positions, particularly when cutting inside from the left.
"Another factor in Werner's favour is his age. The forward has already amassed closed to 300 senior appearances since making his professional debut for Stuttgart in 2013, but he only turned 24 in March."
