Sheffield United v Tottenham team news

Sheffield United: Enda Stevens and George Baldock are rated 50/50 for this clash, while Oli McBurnie is less likely to recover in time from injury.

Jack O'Connell, Jack Robinson and Sander Berge are all ruled out. Billy Sharp may start after scoring the winner for the Blades from the bench in their previous outing.

Tottenham: Giovani Lo Celso is the only major absentee for Spurs in this one, though Steven Bergwijn is a doubt after missing the Fulham game with "physical problems" according to Jose Mourinho.

Eric Dier picked up a knock during the game but managed to shake it off and should start this weekend provided no lasting damage or delayed issue has been triggered.

Our prediction: Sheffield United v Tottenham

Sheffield United have certainly given themselves a chance of survival with the recent win over Newcastle but in reality Tottenham should overpower this side.

Spurs like to hit opponents on the break and are expected to exploit gaps left by Wilder’s men when they inevitably try to push forward.

This could be a routine game for Mourinho, who will want the result settled early so he can manage his players. Don’t expect a rampage from Tottenham here – just enough to secure the three points.

Our prediction: Sheffield United 0-2 Tottenham
