Tottenham vs Sheff Utd: Spurs to keep Euro hopes alive

Tottenham need a strong finish to the season to qualify for Europe next term and must look to brush aside Sheffield United on home turf.

The Blades enjoyed a welcome boost when beating Brighton last weekend, though, and have netted in three previous meetings with Spurs over the past 18 months.

We’re tempted by 21/10 for a home win and both teams to score for our first Tottenham vs Sheff Utd prediction.

A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds

Tottenham almost hung on for extra-time when facing Manchester City in the EFL Cup final, only for Aymeric Laporte to head in a late decider.

“I am not going to lie, this one is very tough because all these years and to not have a trophy, it hurts me deeply,” said Eric Dier. “So, you have to go again.

“It’s tough. Very disappointed. Nothing else really I can say other than that.

“An opportunity to win a trophy and we have come up short, in the worst possible way with the goal we have conceded.”

Spurs have also had to endure mixed fortunes in the Premier League of late, but are still in the hunt for Europa League and even Champions League places from seventh spot.

Tottenham have been reliable against lesser lights on home turf, registering five wins and two draws from seven other games with teams in the bottom eight.

Gareth Bale has enjoyed playing in such fixtures, hitting doubles versus Burnley and Crystal Palace here, as well as netting against Brighton and Southampton.

Let’s go with 13/5 for the Welsh wizard to grab the last goal from the Tottenham vs Sheff Utd odds.

Last Spurs line-up: Lloris, Reguilon, Alderweireld, Aurier, Hojbjerg, Winks, Dier, Lo Celso, Moura, Son, Kane.

A Look At Sheffield United’s Betting Odds

Sheffield United’s relegation was confirmed when they lost away to Wolves but the Blades picked themselves up in time to shade Brighton 1-0 at Bramall Lane.

David McGoldrick’s first-half strike proved enough to earn the Blades a fifth Premier League win of the season.

Interim manager Paul Heckingbottom is convinced his players will continue to give their all in the remaining games, despite having nothing but pride left to play for.

He said: “We know what’s happened, we’re a Championship club next season, but that doesn’t mean we’re not going to give everything between now and the end of the season.

“We might be planning for next season but we have to pick up points and give performances like that.”

McGoldrick now has eight goals this term and seems to lift his game when facing big London clubs, having netted in a 3-1 home loss to Spurs and when visiting Arsenal and Chelsea.

The Republic of Ireland international is 13/5 to score at any time here and that completes our Tottenham vs Sheff Utd betting tips.

Last Sheff Utd line-up: Ramsdale, Baldock, Stevens, Egan, Bogle, Bryan, Fleck, Norwood, Osborn, McGoldrick, Brewster.
