Sheffield United vs Tottenham
THU 2nd JULY 2020 – KO 18:00pm
BETTING & MATCH PREVIEW
On Thursday evening, two teams competing for the European spots in the Premier League meet, as Sheffield United host Tottenham at Bramall Lane.
The Blades have enjoyed a very good first season back in the Premier League. Chris Wilder’s team are currently ninth-place in the table, just a point behind the seventh-place visitors. A top-seven finish would be enough for a spot in next season’s Europa League, although eighth-place could bring continental football next season too.
Sheffield United have a poor recent record in the Premier League, as they have failed to win in three league outings, having suffered two straight 3-0 defeats against Newcastle United and Manchester United.
The Blades have an inconsistent recent home record in the Premier League. However, they have won three of their last five league games at Bramall Lane.
Jose Mourinho’s team are seven points behind Wolves, who occupy the last Champions League spot. Time is running out for Spurs to claim a top-five spot in the English top-flight.
Their recent league form has not been great, as the visitors have won just once in their last five outings in the Premier League. A 2-0 win over West Ham last time out ended a four-game winless run for the team from north London in the league.
Spurs have been travel sick of late in the English top-flight, winning just once in their last six away games. The visitors have kept just one clean sheet on their travels in the Premier League this season.
Sheffield United will likely be without the injured John Lundstram, while centre-back Jack O’Connell is still a fitness doubt. The pair are likely to be replaced by Sander Berge and Jack Robison. Meanwhile, Tottenham are still without injured trio Troy Parrott, Juan Foyth and Japhet Tanganga.
