Spurs' win over Liverpool moved them level on 20 points with United after José Mourinho‘s side slumped to their first league defeat of the season against Huddersfield Town.
Wednesday night's Carabao Cup defeat to West Ham United is unlikely to have a major bearing on this game so, with momentum in their favour, Pochettino will hope to clinch a victory at Old Trafford and move ahead of United into second place.
Harry Kane is ruled out after picking up a hamstring strain against Liverpool, which is a major blow for Pochettino, so Fernando Llorente should deputise.
Mousa Dembélé's return to first-team action against the Hammers came as a major boost and the powerful Belgian midfielder may miss out to Harry Winks.
