Tottenham Hotspur v Sheffield United Match Preview & Trends

Mason seeking to put cup final loss behind him

Tottenham are back in league action after last weekend’s Caribou Cup Final defeat to Manchester City and welcome relegated Sheffield United to North London. After winning his battle for fitness to appear at Wembley, England captain Harry Kane may not be risked if he is anything other than 100% fit for this fixture. As much as Spurs need their talisman, he will have one eye on The Euros in the summer and leading his country into the tournament with no niggles at all. There has been a first-half goal scored in each of Tottenham’s last 6 home games in a row and another quick start may waylay fears of any potential banana skin at The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Sheff Utd have conceded the first goal of the game in their last 7 away games and have lost their last 7 away matches in a row. The Blades have won just one of their last 5 Premier League games and have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last 24 away games. Sheffield Utd conceded at least 1 goal in 100% of their away matches. 76% of their points have been earned at home. 

The Blades have conceded the opening goal in 76% of their matches and have lost 79% of their matches. Paul Heckingbotham’s side have lost 88% of their away matches and have lost their last 6 away matches. The Blades have conceded at least 1 goal in each of their last 16 away matches.If Tottenham win, they would increase their lead over Sheffield Utd to 39 points in the league table, and it would be their 7th consecutive away defeat.
