On Saturday, from 15:00, Tottenham and Sheffield United will play in the 12th round of the Premier League, in the arena of the UEFA Champions League final. Mauricio Pochettino’s troupe is not present at all this season, but has the chance of an important victory in front of the newly promoted Chris Wilder.
After the titanic effort last season, Tottenham seem to have been “guessed” by Premier League rivals, who can hardly be surprised by the executions of Alli, Eriksen, Kane or Son. On the weekend, the Londoners will not be able to rely on Son, who was eliminated in the match with Everton (1-1), in which Andre Gomes was seriously injured. Under these circumstances, the pressure from the London attack will drop on Kane and Eriksen’s shoulders, but it is possible to see him on the field and the jolly-joker Lucas Moura.
Not only can Spurs have a better lot and start with the first chance at victory, but the “hotels” are more rested before moving to the Capital. Tottenham had a away game with Red Star Belgrade, in the Champions League groups, from which the English have minimal chances of qualifying. Wear could say its word in the second half and we believe that the favorites will prevail from the first 45 minutes. However, the newly promoted Sheffield United has impressed many times this season.
In addition to the huge victory in front of Arsenal (1-0), the band on Brammall Lane (placed in a very tight 4-5-1 system) can boast of matches without goal in front of Watford (0- 0) and Burnley (3-0). In fact, United is undefeated in the last four stages of the championship and is in the Top 7, far above the expectations of the fans. In contrast, Tottenham has reached the second part of the hierarchy of the Premier League and is in great need of success on its own at the weekend.
