Team News: Sheffield United
There aren’t many personnel worries, with just one fitness concern for the Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder to be concerned with from of an almost fully healthy group of players. Jack O'Connell (Knee Surgery) misses out.
Team News: Tottenham Hotspur
Spurs manager José Mourinho has to choose a team with limited availability. Steven Bergwijn (Unknown Injury) and Giovani Lo Celso (Hamstring Injury) are not ready for selection.
We envisage that Sheffield United will manage to put one past this Tottenham Hotspur outfit, however a single goal is unlikely to be enough to give them the result that they want.
Therefore, we’re predicting a close game with a 1-2 win for Tottenham Hotspur at full-time. There shouldn’t be much in it, either way.
