Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
The Line: -- Over/Under:
In the 2019 English Premier League, Tottenham is set to host Sheffield United in North London.
Tottenham played well midweek as they defeated Red Star Belgrade 4-0 away from home. It was a dominant display by the Spurs as they controlled 67% of the possession and had 17 shots. The passing was also impressive as Tottenham completed 710 passes at an accuracy rate of 87%. Heung Min Son was the star performer for Tottenham as he scored 2 goals. Despite that win, Tottenham have still had a poor season and they must improve their domestic form. As it currently stands, Tottenham are 11th on the ladder with only 13 points. Heung Min Son will not be available for this fixture after he received a red card in Tottenham’s previous Premier League fixture. Despite that suspension, Tottenham will still be expecting a good result from this match.
Looking at their opponents, Sheffield United have had a good season and are currently 6th position with 16 points. In their last match, Sheffield United defeated Burnley 3-0 at home. It was a convincing win for Sheffield United as they had 13 shots while preventing Burnley from having any shots on target. John Lundstram played well as he scored 2 goals for Sheffield United. Traveling to Tottenham is always a tough task but considering the form of both sides, the visitors will be optimistic about getting a result.
Tottenham have had a terrible season and it seems like the players are no longer behind the team. To make matters worse, Son will be available for this match. With all that in mind, I am going to predict this match finishing as a draw. Sheffield United are a very capable team but I don’t see them having enough to win away from home. A draw seems like the most likely outcome.
