BETTING & MATCH PREVIEW
It’s Sheffield United vs Spurs on Sunday afternoon. The Blades come into this one with a huge weight lifted off their shoulders after finally getting their first win of the season.
Another week but this time, not another loss for Sheffield United. They secured their first three points of the season on Tuesday when they beat Newcastle 1-0 thanks to a Billy Sharp penalty.
The win still kept them bottom of the table, but now they are nine points from safety instead of 12. On top of this, it will relieve a lot of pressure on the players and it could see an improvement in performance.
Wilders side has conceded five goals in their last five games. This isn’t the norm for a team struggling at the bottom of the table. They can be hard to break down and the manager will be hoping for a sold performance at the back Sunday.
The game against Sheffield United is one in which Spurs will be looking at getting back to winnings ways. They drew midweek against Fulham in what was a disappointing performance from Mourinho’s side.
Spurs are currently sixth, six points off the top. With United and Liverpool playing each other Sunday, a win for Spurs would see them close the gap at the top.
Mourinho’s side will know it will be a battle on Sunday. Sheffield United will be full of confidence and it won’t be a walkover for them. Spurs won’t sit back in this one and it’ll be interesting to see how they can break down this Sheffield side.
Sheffield United are without Jack O’Connell and Sander Berge. Robinson, Stevens, Balldock and McBurnie are doubts.
Doherty is available for this one after suspension. Lamela and Lo Celso are both doubts.
