Tottenham have only lost one of their last five outings in the Premier League and they have the home advantage against relegated Sheff Utd, whom they beat 3-1 back in January. The Blades have lost five of their last six matches in all competitions and have failed to score in four of those defeats.
Tottenham have scored at least two goals in four of their last six matches in league and cup, while Sheff Utd have failed to score in four of their last six fixtures. With the home advantage and Kane back in the starting lineup, we're backing Spurs to secure a 2-0 home win this weekend.
Gareth Bale to Score
Gareth Bale has started playing with a bit more freedom since the sacking of Jose Mourinho and has so far chipped in with six league goals this season. The Welsh international scored in Tottenham;s last home game against his former club Southampton and we're betting on Bale to get on the scoreboard against the Blades this Sunday.
Tottenham vs Sheff Utd: Key stats and odds
Tottenham are the big favourites to win this weekend
Tottenham couldn't follow up their 2-1 win over Southampton with League cup final victory against Man City, going down by a solitary goal to nil. Spurs look to make it three league games without a defeat on Sunday but only a win will do in their hunt for the Champions League places. Ryan Mason has certainly given the Tottenham players more freedom to attack since replacing Jose Mourinho as the interim manager. The hosts will have all of the ball this weekend and will be expected to comfortably beat an already relegated Sheff Utd. Doherty could miss out once again this weekend through injury and Davies has already been ruled out.
Basham, Sharp, O'Connell and McBurnie will certainly miss the trip to London through injury but both Berge and Robinson could return to the squad. The Blades have nothing but pride to play for now, as was shown against Brighton last time out. Some of these Sheff Utd players will be hoping to remain in the Premier League by earning a summer move to another of the top-flight clubs but the way they have performed this season, there won't be many clubs knocking at their doors.
