"@ManUtd have arrived so kick-off is confirmed as 4.30pm (1530 GMT)," Spurs said on their official Twitter page, having earlier announced a delay of 15 minutes.
Second-place Tottenham are bidding to keep pace with league leaders Leicester City, while United are seeking to close the gap on fourth-place Manchester City in the race for Champions League qualification.
"How will we be affected by the delay? That we can only say afterwards!" United manager Louis van Gaal told Sky Sports.
"Tottenham also had problems because they have to wait, and we had to hurry.
"I have already had an experience with Barcelona against Arsenal, so I knew how London is. It is unbelievable! We have driven around in circles. It is unbelievable that you cannot drive to where you need to be.
"The warm-up has to change. We cannot do everything that we have to do. I am not a god, I am a simple manager, but we must play very well as Tottenham are one of the best teams in the league."
