Tottenham Hotspur Starting XI Prediction at Sheffield United (4-3-3)


The good news for Tottenham Hotspur is that they are unbeaten in their last six across all competitions. The bad news is a hot start that saw them go top of the table has eroded, and now they’re outside even the Champions League qualification slots.

The run of disappointing form was punctuated by a disappointing 1-1 draw to relegation fodder Fulham FC. Now comes another match against a drop zone team, the overall bottom side, Sheffield United. Jose Mourinho needs to get his squad going again- they haven’t won a road Premier League match since early November.

If they lose or draw at Bramall Lane on Sunday, not only will it be very demoralizing. It will also extend the stretch of road fixtures without a win to five.

The Blades just got their very first win of the season, but don’t expect that result to kickstart a hot streak by any means.
