Tottenham vs Sheffield United Prediction
Tottenham made a mess of their most recent PL fixture, as on the road, they were held to a draw by Everton. More than the result, it was how the proceedings went that attracted wide-spread attention. Forward Son Heung-Min was sent off for his unintentional yet horrific tackle on Andre Gomes, which left the midfielder screaming on the ground with his ankle broken.
The game ended 1-1 after Tottenham conceded in the 90+7th minute, which would further impact their confidence for the coming days.
Meanwhile, new entrants to the league, Sheffield, has been having the time of their life in the top division. The last match-day, they demolished Burnley with a 3-0 scoreline, with all three goals coming before the half time.
This Saturday, if it were the earlier days, Harry Kane and co should have danced away to a comfortable victory. But things have changed now. Tottenham is at present on a run of 13 winless fixtures, from their previous 17 games. With these kinds of stats, it would be hard to believe that they had contested in the 2018/19 Champions League Final.
At home, they have managed just four wins from their previous fourteen appearances. Meanwhile, Sheffield is unbeaten in their last four overall games, and impressively in every single road match this campaign.
As such, count on Sheffield to avoid a loss this weekend. Building on the same note, with their incredible defensive skills, goals should be scarce in this tie. Moreover, with just 12 goals from 11 matches for Sheffield, and coupling the away handicap to this stat, no one expects the visitors to score in plenty as well.
Likely, expect the affair to return no more than two goals.
