Tottenham Hotspur Stadium – Sunday – Kick-off 8:15pm GMT.

This Sunday sees Spurs go head to head with Sheffield U at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium – Kick-off 8:15pm GMT.

Spurs will travel to Sheffield U, hoping to take points from their higher ranked rivals.

Tottenham Hotspur have 53 points to their name, going into this tie

Another victory would be a terrific achievement, but that is what Ryan Mason will be asking from his team, as they go into this game on the back of strong results after beating Fulham 0-1 and Burnley 4-0

They currently sit in seventh place, with a total of 53 points having won 15 fixtures, drawn eight matches, and lost 10 games.

When Spurs host Sheffield U, they will do so on the back of six victories and three draws on their own ground.

Tottenham Hotspur will have 56 points so far this season, should they secure a win.

Good Attacking Performance

Spurs will be pleased to have a good goal scoring record so far this season (56). Their stand out attacking players have been Heung Min Son (13), Harry Kane (13), and Lucas Moura (3). Spurs have conceded 38 goals.

Spurs’s squad will likely be depleted of two of their key players when they start on Sunday, due to injury or illness.

Struggling Sheffield United go to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday and hope for a positive result

Sheffield U will hope to increase their wins in a row, having secured a 1-0 victory over Brighton & Hove Albion in their last fixture.

The relegation zone is not where Sheffield U want to be at the end of the season, but that is where they are heading, unless they can get out of their losing habit. The Blades have lost 14 of their last 19 fixtures in the Premier League. With twentieth, they currently sit 17 points in the League having won five fixtures, drawn two games, and lost 26 meetings.

Sheffield U have had a disappointing run of performances on the road, having won one game, drawn one game, and lost 14 matches of their 16 League matches playing away this season.

Winning this fixture will see Sheffield United on 20 points.

It is likely that six key players will miss Sunday’s fixture, which is something of a concern for Paul Heckingbottom and his Sheffield U team.
