Sports Ticket: Sheffield United vs Tottenham EPL Preview, Prediction & Streaming Info
The Blades recorded their first ever win this league season the last match-day, at home, against Newcastle. In the meantime, Jose’s men were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Fulham. However, note that Chris Wilder’s men were winless in 19 of their last 21 overall games, and of these an embarrassing 16 were losses. At home, they have lost all fixtures since July, barring a single draw and a win. The team has also conceded goals in plenty all through these match-ups. On the other hand, their counterparts were unbeaten in 27 of their preceding 30 overall games, and they have lost just twice on the road this whole season. One of these defeats had come against Liverpool, and the other had come in the Europa League. This weekend, with a spot in the top-most tier in sights, expect Tottenham to post the win against Sheffield United.
The Blades are by far the worst team in the whole competition, and are placed dead last in the table. They have scored the least number of goals so far in the tournament, and have recorded a total of just one win till now. They also are rather a comparatively new team in the English top flight, as they were promoted just the season before. Meanwhile, the Spurs have been one of the best teams in the competition for the past several years, and are title favorites this season. Note that they were at the top of the table for quite some time as well during this campaign. Going on, with the top two teams taking on each other this weekend, this is an opportunity for Jose Mourinho’s men to climb into the podium. In addition, they also have a good h2h record against this rival over the years. Likely, expect the determined Tottenham to post a win this Sunday at the Bramall Lane.
Mourinho will almost certainly make changes to his Spurs XI with Toby Alderweireld and Lucas Moura in line for recalls. Despite remaining as unused substitutes against Fulham, Dele Alli and Gareth Bale are expected to stay among the replacements. Barring any late fitness issues, Wilder could opt against making any alterations to his Sheffield United XI. Oliver Burke is likely to keep his spot in the side ahead of Tuesday’s matchwinner Billy Sharp. Jack O’Connell and Sander Berge remain long-term absentees from the squad.
