Tottenham Hotspur vs Sheffield United odds and betting statistics



Tottenham Hotspur vs Sheffield United match preview

Will Tottenham Hotspur’s excellent start to the season continue?

Ange Postecoglou’s team begin the day in second place, having accumulated ten points from their opening four matches, winning each of the last three.

Before the international break, Son Heung-min’s hat-trick helped them demolished Burnley 5-2 at Turf Moor, with Cristian Romero and James Maddison also on target.

After this, Spurs’ next two games are a North London derby and then a visit from Liverpool, so will the Lilywhites win again, ahead of tougher tests to come?

Sheffield United meantime began the campaign with three successive defeats, before finally getting off the mark last time out.

The Blades held Everton to a 2-2 draw at Bramall Lane a fortnight ago, with Cameron Archer, on his debut, the star of the show.

So, encouraging signs for Paul Heckingbottom’s team, although they are still winless, and that wait for a victory could go on, given that their other two fixtures in September see the Blades face Newcastle and West Ham.

Sheffield United did knock Tottenham out of the FA Cup earlier this year, although their last victory over Spurs in London came in November 1991, with Kevin Gage the only scorer that afternoon.

This is unlikely to change, with a home win at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium extremely likely.

Paul Heckingbottom will be hoping that Oli McBurnie and Cameron Archer will continue to operate as a potent attacking duo, having caused Everton all sorts of issues a fortnight ago.

Left-wing-back Luke Thomas came off the bench for his debut in that one, but could stat this time, displacing Yasser Larouci, while Ben Osborn is out injured.

Wes Foderingham, Anel Ahmedhodžić, Jack Robinson and George Baldock all started March’s FA Cup victory over Tottenham, so can they help repeat that feat here?

Predicted XI (3-5-2): Foderingham; Ahmedhodžić, Egan, Robinson; Baldock, Norwood, Hamer, Souza, Thomas; Archer, McBurnie.
