Any further dropped points surely end their lingering hopes of Champions League qualification but the run-in looks kind, starting with the already relegated Blades.
With Liverpool at Manchester United and West Ham travelling to a re-energised Burnley, Spurs could gain points on their rivals come the end of Monday.
Date, time and venue
Tottenham vs Sheffield United is scheduled for a 7.15pm BST kick-off today Saturday, May 1, 2021.
The match will be held behind closed doors at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
How to watch
TV channel: Today’s match will be televised on Sky Sports.
Live stream: Sky Sports subscribers will be able to watch the match online via the website or Sky Go app.
It’s a case of as you were for Tottenham following Harry Kane’s return to fitness, with Matt Doherty and Ben Davies still sidelined. The former Wolves man has returned to training so could make the matchday squad.
Sheffield United will assess Sander Berge and Jack Robinson ahead of kick-off.
Prediction: Tottenham 3-0 Sheffield United
Spurs simply cannot afford any further slip-ups and even then a top-four finish is out of their hands.
After the disappointment of the Carabao Cup Final, a thumping win against the relegated Blades should be just what the doctor ordered.
