Sheffield United vs Tottenham Preview

  • Date – Sunday, May 19, 2024
  • Kick-off Time – 04:00 pm GMT
  • Venue – Bramall Lane

Sheffield United will host in-form Tottenham in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon at St James’ Park. The Magpies will be able to climb up to sixth place in the standings and it is in their hands to finish within the European spots.

Ange Postecoglou’s side has been seeking some sort of stability in the final stages of the season but their 2-0 loss to Manchester City ended their hopes of Champions League qualification which will leave them at the fifth spot in the league table.

They will then take on Sheffield who have the worst defensive records in the Premier League this season conceding 101 goals in 37 games. The Blades will make an immediate return to the Championship as they are 13 points behind Nottingham Forest in 17th. The basement dwellers will end this turbulent season at home to Tottenham Hostpur.

Ange Postecoglou’s men have struggled to gather any consistent form in the latter half of the season but are certainly the heavy favorites coming into this fixture. They will be coming off a disappointing 2-0 loss at the hands of plausible champions Manchester City earlier this week. The defeat ended Spurs’ hopes of qualifying for the Champions League next term.

Meanwhile, Sheffield has the worst defence in the division and will deservedly get demoted to the Championship next season. The Blades are now 13 points adrift of safety with just one game remaining for the season. Chris Wilder’s men are will make a return to the Championship and have now conceded a total of 101 Premier League goals, the most in a single season in the division’s history.

Predicted Score: Sheffield United 0-3 Tottenham
