Tottenham vs Sheffield Utd Preview

On Thursday night (2nd July), 6:00pm (UK time) Tottenham Hotspur will face Sheffield United away from home in a big game to decide where Spurs will finish in the Premier League Table. At time of writing this Spurs and Sheffled United sit at 7th and 8th in the PL table, one point separating them. Both teams are looking to take the win as the race for top 4 gets closer to finishing. 

Sheffield United: Before the restart Sheffield United were playing really well despite only being promoted this season. However, since the Premier League restart, they have lost 2 out of their 3 games and have drawn one. A 0-0 draw to Aston Villa and two 3-0 losses to Newcastle and Manchester United. But they still pose a threat to Spurs as they have some good players who are always a danger to the opposition. 

Tottenham Hotspur: Tottenham have had a poor season on the back of a Champions League final defeat to Liverpool in June last year. With a poor start to the season, manager Mauricio Pochettino was sacked with Tottenham sitting 14th in the Premier League table. Spurs then bought in Jose Mourinho and with a mixed performance, we finished 8th in the table before the Premier League was stopped due to COVID-19. Since the restart Spurs have drawn 1-1 to Manchester United and beat West Ham 2-0. It is a big game for Spurs if they want to get European Football next season.

My prediction is that Spurs will take the win and they will win 1-0 and hopefully Spurs can get European football next season, COYS!
