We are backing Sheffield to pick up some points in this match despite Sheffield United’s recent poor run of result over the first half of the premier league season.
Sheffield United are still nine points adrift of safety at the bottom of the Premier League after losing three of their last four league matches. Those three defeats came in successive matches against Everton, Burnley and Crystal Palace. The Blades failed to score in all three of those matches. They did, however, beat Bristol Rovers 3-2 in the FA Cup. That result then gave them the platform to defeat 10-man Newcastle at home thanks to Billy Sharp’s second-half penalty. It was their first Premier League win of the season. Sheffield United will likely be without Jack Robinson, Oliver McBurnie, Sander Berge and Jack O’Connell due to injury.
Tottenham find themselves six points off the top of the Premier League table and have won three of their last four matches in all competitions. Spurs started with a 3-0 win over Leeds in the Premier League before successive domestic cup victories. The first was a 2-0 win over Brentford to book their place in the League Cup final, before beating non-league Marine 5-0 in the FA Cup. Last time out, however, they were left frustrated after drawing 1-1 with Fulham. Harry Kane opened the scoring for Tottenham, but Ivan Cavaliero ensured the Cottagers earned a point. Tottenham are set to be without midfielder Giovani Lo Celso and winger Steven Bergwijn due to knocks.
Tottenham have 36 wins in this fixture compared to Sheffield United’s 29. They have also played out 27 draws. Sheffield United won the most recent meeting 3-1 in July 2020. Tottenham have led at half-time in their last 6 matches, making this our best bet.
PREDICTION : DRAW 1-1
ACCUMULATOR TIP : TOTTENHAM DOUBLE CHANCE
SINGLE TIP : TOTTENHAM HT WIN
