Key Stats

  • Four of the last seven meetings between the Blades and Spurs have produced over 3.5 goals, while five of Sheff Utd's and three of Tottenham's last six outings have also witnessed at least four goals.
  • The hosts have conceded at least three goals in four of their last five fixtures and Tottenham haven't kept a single clean sheet in their last six attempts, which is why we're backing a 3-1 win for the visitors this weekend.
  • Son Heung-Min leads the way for Spurs this season with 17 Premier League goals and we're backing the 31-year-old to find the back of the net at least once on Sunday against the division's worst defence.

Tottenham: Poor end-of-season form

Player to watch – Son Heung-Min

Tottenham's South Korean star is on course to finish the campaign as the club's top goalscorer and chief playmaker.

You expect Son to score or create at least one goal against a poor Sheff Utd defence this weekend and the 31-year-old will be desperate to add to his 17 goals and nine assists in the Premier League this season.

Tottenham's South Korean star has impressed once again

Missing out of Champions League football has left a bitter taste in the mouth for many Spurs fans but the performances of Son have given the Tottenham faithful something to smile about as he continues to impress following the departure of Harry Kane.
