The Blades are going through their biggest crisis of the season after returning from a pandemic-induced break.
However, Chris Wilder’s men are determined to make a breakthrough against Tottenham as their European spots competitors.
In the meantime, Kenyan sports betting site 22Bet offers a bet prediction for the mid-week match.
Rough Days at the Bramall Lane
After becoming the biggest sensation of the Premier League, Sheffield United fell off the cliff ever since the league returned. They lost two and drew only to the Championship-bound Aston Villa in the league. This put them eight points behind the European spots, meaning that their European dream is probably over if they don’t get the three points against the Spurs.
What is even more worrying is their attacking output.
While they somehow always managed to find a goal this season, things changed and they went over 360 minutes without scoring before David McGoldrick finally broke the deadlock in the FA Cup, but they still conceded a late stunner to Arsenal’s Dani Ceballos.
Wilder will have to find some magic within because things are not looking good for the most inspiring story of the season in English football.
Tottenham Hunting Europe
Ever since taking over the Spurs, Jose Mourinho had his fair share of ups and downs. However, things seem to have stabilised and a win paired with a draw to Manchester United brought some calmness to the North Londoners. They are now sitting ten points behind the Champions League spots, and it is unlikely that they will manage to catch up. However, the Europa League is still on the cards for Tottenham.
The biggest news in North London is that Harry Kane is back.
The captain and the leader of his team even managed to score against West Ham in a 2-0 win last weekend after returning from a gruesome injury earlier in the season.
All of this brought some positive spirits to Mourinho, and now he’s looking to capitalize on the momentum.
Sheff Utd vs Spurs Prediction
Even though they’re going through a result crisis, Sheffield United are bound to show their quality, and they might do just that on Thursday to confirm they are still in it for the European spots.
With Kane returning, Jose’s men should be able to find the net, while Wilder will go all out to score once again after ending the scoring drought against Tottenham’s biggest rivals in the FA Cup.
