Tottenham hopes to retrace their winning ways in the Premier League this weekend when they travel to take on Sheffield United. The match schedules for Sunday at Tottenham Stadium with kickoff at 5 pm.
Sheffield United overcame their woes this season by registering their first three points against Newcastle United. On the other hand, Tottenham shared their spoils against Fulham last weekend.
Jose Mourinho put to rest their six winless streaks across all competitions. The Chosen One will be looking to build on their previous win to make up for the last poor run of form in the league. Having conceded against Fulham and Wolves in the dying minutes is the difference between sixth and second.
The North London outfit is at a stage of the campaign to turn their draws to wins. It provides a perfect position with all top four sides playing against each other this weekend.
There is a chance of Spurs making up ground lost failing to see off Fulham on Wednesday evening. Even though the Kane-Son relationship is bolstering, they need to bolster the rest of the squad.
The Blades head into the clash with a bit of confidence after months of losses and draws. With victories over Bristol Rovers and Newcastle were impressive, Wilder will end their 18 winless streaks.

Sheffield United Team News
With late injury concerns a major threat for Chris Wilder, we expect minimal changes to the starting XI. Olivier Burke is likely to keep his spot ahead in attack with Billy Sharp dropping even after coming with the match-winning goal last weekend. Jack O’Connell and Sander Berge remain long-term absentees.
Tottenham Spurs Team News
We expect total changes from Mourinho in the starting XI with Toby Alderweireld and Mourra pushing for recalls. Dele Alli and Gareth Bale expect to start on the bench this weekend. We hope a midfield pairing of Sissoko with Hojberg also coming back from injury.
Prediction and Odds
Both sides are coming off winless streaks and will be more than encouraged to put up a show this Sunday.
