Match Preview & Team News
Sheffield United are enjoying their time in the elite tier of English football these days. They well confounded pre-season expectations and hold 6th place in the Premier League ladder after 11 rounds of the competition. The Blades confirmed their stellar form last weekend when they stormed past Burnley 3-0 at Bramall Lane. Lys Mousset stole the show with three assists on the occasion, while midfielder John Lundstram played the best Premier League game of his career. He contributed with a brace.
Chris Wilder’s men are undefeated in four successive league affairs. They are yet to be beaten on the road this term (one win and four draws). Such a brilliant form has plenty to do with the teams’ defensive displays as Sheffield United are the outfit with the fewest number of conceded goals in the entire competition (8).
The visitors allowed just two goals in the last six Premier League ties, a streak which included clashes against the likes of Liverpool and Arsenal. Can they keep it going and hold Tottenham Hotspur at bay on Saturday afternoon?
Spurs desperately need a victory here as they are winless in four subsequent league ties. They hold a disappointing 11th position in the league standings. To make matters worse, Harry Kane has slight injury woes, while the psychological condition of Son Heung-Min is questionable as he went into tears after a brutal challenge on Everton’s Andre Gomes in the last weekend’s 1-1 draw at Goodison.
Spurs can only rely on a fine home form as they won three, drew one and lost one of five Premier League fixtures in front of their fans.
Full Time Winner Odds & Prediction
Bookies see Tottenham as clear favourites, but the numbers suggest this will be a very tough fixture for Mauricio Pochettino and his men. We’ll back the Blades to keep their stellar form going and stay unbeaten at the odds of 5/4.
Goals Market Prediction
Sheffield United’s rock-solid defence should have enough to keep Tottenham at bay here. We’ll back the Under 2.5 goals FT as an alternative bet at the 1/1 odds.
