Tottenham beat relegation threatened Swansea 5-0 during their last league fixture, bouncing back from losing their unbeaten record in the top-tier to London rivals Chelsea the week before.
As things stand, Spurs are three points behind Liverpool and Manchester City who occupy third and fourth respectively.
However, Pochettino will have his eyes on closing the gap on leaders Chelsea, with Antonio Conte’s side currently seven points ahead of the White Hart Lane club.
By contrast United are 13 points behind the west London team and they could fall further away from the title race and the top four, if they drop points at the weekend.
In other Tottenham news, supporters on Twitter have urged Mauricio Pochettino to reunite this pair in the team.
