Tottenham vs. Sheffield United: Premier League – Match Preview

by hisham

Tottenham will be looking to build on an impressive mid-week win when they travel to face Sheffield United.

Spurs thrashed Red Star 4-0 in Belgrade to leave them well placed in their Champions League group.

A late Cenk Tosun goal earned Everton a point against Spurs in the league, a match overshadowed by the horrific injury Andre Gomes received.

Sheffield United’s excellent start to life in the Premier League continued with an easy win over Burnley.

Fantasy football icon John Lundstrum scored twice, with Lys Mousset assisting all three in a 3-0 victory.
