Sheffield United will host Tottenham Hotspur on Thursday. Sheffield United are just one point away from Hotspur in points table table. The Blades are currently ranking on 9th position with 44 points in 31 matches whereas the Lilywhites are placed on 7th position with 45 points in same number of matches.
Before pandemic outbreak everything was looking in control for Sheffield United. Since the restart their form looked dull. They lost back to back matches against Newcastle United, Manchester United, each with 3-0. Those were their biggest defeats of the season. Their European qualification is under serious threat. Recently United were outclassed by Arsenal in FA Cup Quarter Final.
Only a win against Tottenham Hotspur on Thursday can make them place back in top 6. Considering their drubbing form this doesn’t seem as easy for the host. If not a win, they must try to hold Lilywhites on a draw.
On the other hand Tottenham Hotspur ended their seven match wait for victory when they thrashed West Ham United by 3-0 on June 23. However they got a gift from West Ham when Toma Soucek’s mistake led to an own goal. This was the second instance when Lilywhites luck favoured them. They shared point against Manchester United when an error from David de Gea gifted them reward.
Tottenham form away from home has been poor this season. They have grabbed just 15 points in 15 away games that they have played so far. Their last away win came against relegation favourites Aston Villa back in February. In total of last 9 away games it was their lonely win.
Only fewer teams have managed to clinch win over Sheffield United at Bramall Lane this season. Although Sheffield United lost their three of the first four Premier League games in Sheffield this season but soon they uplifted their game and are now in top 10 ( in points table ). A draw in this game is considerably the most favourable outcome as Tottenham Hotspur drew 50% of their last Premier League away matches.
