Tottenham vs Sheffield United
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday 2nd May 2021
Kick off at 19:15 UK/ 20:15 CET
Venue: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Tottenham will be the favourites to win this game as they face the bottom side Sheffield United at home.
Tottenham are coming off of their Carabao Cup final loss to Manchester City which ended 1-0 and there seems to still be the fall out of sacking manager Jose Mourinho. In charge now is 29 year old Ryan Mason and he was able to win his first game in charge as Tottenham beat Southampton here 2-1.
The Carabao Cup final loss will be hanging over the players though but they will have to focus on this game if they want to play European football next season. Tottenham are in 7th place with 53 points and depending on results around them they could move up 1 or 2 places. They are 5 points from a top four finish but if Chelsea have won on Saturday and with games now running out the chances for this look slim for the club.
Sheffield United will probably finish in last place but last weekend the club beat Brighton 1-0. It was only the Blades 5th win of the season and they now have 17 points.
Being already relegated the players seem relaxed now and that means they could be a threat in this game as they can just switch off and try and enjoy themselves. Still the Blades have by far the worst away record in the league having lost 14 of their 16 games and have earned just 4 points from a possible 48.
Tottenham vs Sheffield United: Head to Head
- Last season this fixture ended 1-1.
- Earlier in the season Tottenham won the reverse game 3-1.
- The last 4 meetings in a row have seen both teams to score.
- The last two games have finished with the correct score of 3-1 to either side.
Tottenham vs Sheffield United: Prediction
This match feels like the perfect one for Tottenham to bounce back from after losing the Carabao Cup final. To be at home against the bottom side and a limited team quality wise Tottenham have no excuse not to put in a good performance and get a good win.
We think Tottenham can win and score goals too. Tottenham have everything to fight for and the Blades have nothing but passion.
The problem is that Tottenham are 1/4 to win so we need to look into different markets. Harry Kane will be desperate to finish the season as top goalscorer and he will feel he could score against a defense that has conceded 56 goals so far.
Also look out for Heung- Min Son who has looked quiet lately this could be the game where the South Korean will find his goals once more.
Tottenham vs Sheffield United: Bet Tips:
Tottenham to score 3+ goals at 2.25 (5/4)
Anytime goalscorer: Harry Kane of Tottenham at 1.57 (4/7)
Anytime goalscorer: Heung-Min Son of Tottenham at 1.80 (4/5).
