This weekend, Manchester United is set to clash with Tottenham Hotspur, and the Red Devils will be encountering their new striker.
Tottenham Hotspur secured a loan deal for Timo Werner earlier this week, unveiling the German striker, who will now be part of the squad visiting Old Trafford.
While Manchester United had been linked to Werner, talks were reportedly held with his agent. However, the Red Devils didn’t actively pursue the deal.
Now, as Werner aims to rejuvenate his career in the Premier League, he has an opportunity to show Manchester United what they might have missed out on.
Timo Werner’s Record Against Manchester United
Timo Werner has faced Manchester United before during his time with Chelsea, and his record against the Red Devils is quite distinctive.
In all four encounters, Werner played to draws, failing to secure a victory. Interestingly, he never managed to score against Manchester United in any of these matches.
Two of the games concluded with a 0-0 scoreline, while the other two ended in a 1-1 draw, with Cristiano Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho scoring the goals.
Finding Positives for Manchester United
While the uniqueness of all four Timo Werner matches resulting in draws is intriguing, the noteworthy aspect is his inability to find the net against Manchester United.
Records can be broken, but heading into the clash, it’s an advantage for Manchester United to face a striker who has previously struggled to score against the club, rather than one who has done so effortlessly.
