Tottenham Hotspur will lock horns with Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on Thursday evening hoping to pick up maximum points on the road. The North London outfit will come into this clash on the back of a 2-0 win over West Ham United last week. In contrast, the Blades have endured three successive losses across all competitions, so Spurs might fancy their chances of earning a positive result in midweek.
Jose Mourinho will opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation and might make one change to his starting XI for this upcoming encounter away at Yorkshire.
4-2-3-1 Tottenham Hotspur Predicted Lineup To Face Sheffield United
Hugo Lloris will lineup in goal for the North London giants after keeping a clean sheet against the Hammers earlier this month. Eric Dier will continue to operate alongside Davinson Sanchez at the centre of Mourinho’s defence as they focus on keeping things stable at the back. Both of them will have to cope with the threat of Sheffield’s Lys Mousset and David McGoldrick on Thursday.
Serge Aurier should retain his spot at right-back while Ben Davies hopes to put in another solid display as the left-back. Both Tottenham full-backs will be instructed to get forward at every chance they can get so that they can create some decent opportunities to score for the front players.
Both Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen will have to settle for a spot on the bench.
Giovani Lo Celso will partner Moussa Sissoko at the centre of the park as they look to breakdown the Blades attacks while also looking to create some promising opportunities in the opposition half. The talented trio of Heung-min Son, Dele Alli and Steven Bergwijn will play just ahead of them as part of Mourinho’s attack.
Lucas Moura, Harry Winks and Erik Lamela will be available for selection on the bench and might come on to make an impact in the second half if needed.
Harry Kane will once again lead the line for Spurs up top. The English centre-forward scored the winning goal against West Ham, so his confidence will be sky-high heading into this match at Bramall Lane later this week.
