One team battling for the title while the other scraps for an unlikely finish within the top four is not an atmosphere overly foreign to a fixture such as Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester United.
However, what makes today’s North London clash so different, is the complete role reversal between the two old foes.
For now, it is Spurs who will be looking to keep the pace on league leaders Leicester City while United desperately try to make up ground on the top four as they bid to reach the Champions League.
Both sides have been noted for their penchant of introducing young talent into their teams this term, though the Red Devils have seen their hands forced due to their injury crisis.
Young Marcus Rashford will continue to lead the line for the visitors today and will only have to look across to opposite number Harry Kane to see just how far his impact can take him should he continue it.
Largely unchanged sides for both teams today, though young Timothy Fosu-Mensah is afforded a starting berth at right-back for the Manchester giants.
A huge boost for the home side as Jan Vertonghen returns after three months out injured, reforming the formidable partnership he shares with countryman Toby Alderweireld.
