Sheffield Utd vs Tottenham LIVE: Team news and line ups confirmed, Mourinho makes changes

SHEFFIELD UNITED vs TOTTENHAM | LIVE!

  • Sheffield United are unbeaten in their past five top-flight home games against Tottenham
  • Tottenham are guaranteed to finish on fewer than 70 points for the first time since Mauricio Pochettino’s debut season in 2014-15
  • The Blades have lost three matches in a row in all competitions for only the second time since Chris Wilder’s appointment in 2016
  • Only Liverpool and Leicester City had conceded fewer top-flight goals than Sheffield United’s 31 after 31 matches of this campaign

What’s on?

Two Premier League fixtures on the menu this evening.

Of course we start at Bramall Lane and then head over to Manchester, where Pep Guardiola’s former champions Manchester City take on the recently crowned champions Liverpool.

Quite strange that that’s now considered one of the more ‘unimportant’ fixtures. Neither have much to play for aside from the odd goal or points record.

That one starts at 8.15pm and I’ll bring you LIVE coverage from the Etihad a little bit later.

Evening…

Hello everyone and welcome to our LIVE coverage of Sheffield United vs Tottenham from Bramall Lane.

Guess what? Yep, there’s more football tonight.

I would complain but the 100-day coronavirus-enforced suspension of all leagues has taught me to be thankful for any football.

Even the weird month where Belarusian football took over.

Anyway, we’re focusing on Tottenham’s trip to Chris Wilder’s Sheffield United, who haven’t exactly enjoyed life since the resumption.

Three top-flight fixtures, zero goals, one point and six conceded… oh, and they’ve not had more than one shot on target in any of their games in the Premier League.

I think they need a project restart of their own. Let’s get going!
