Premier League 2019-20: Tottenham Hotspur v Sheffield United - Predicted XI, Team News and More
Tottenham Hotspur face a stern test on Saturday against an in-form Sheffield United. After easing to a victory during their midweek Champions League encounter with Red Star Belgrade, Tottenham are likely to go into this fixture with a lot of confidence. That being said, their league results have been poor and in addition to that, they haven't won consecutive games since April. On the other hand, finding themselves in 6th place, the Blades have surprised many this season. They have a well-balanced team and they will go into this game with the confidence and would hope to pick up all three points.
Mauricio Pochettino would be hoping that his team will follow up their win against Belgrade with another win to build their much-needed momentum. They have been poor all season and they wouldn't want to be cut adrift from their rivals.
Chris Wilder deserves a lot of praise for what he has achieved with the blades so far. Many expected them to be fighting for survival but they have proved almost everyone wrong by playing like a top 6 side. They would be confident heading into this game due to Tottenham's recent form in the Premier League.
Son Heung-Min is available for Tottenham after his red card was rescinded. Tottenham are still without Jan Vertonghen, Erik Lamela and Hugo Lloris. Also, Serge Aurier and Harry Winks are both likely to start for Tottenham.
Sheffield United defender John Egan is the only injury worry for the visitors, as he faces a late fitness test ahead of Saturday. Forward Callum Robinson is hoping to be recalled into the starting line-up having started all five of Sheffield's away league games.
