Tottenham Hotspur entertained Sheffield United at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium earlier today as they hoped to earn a positive result at home in the Premier League. Spurs made a decent start to the game but were held to a scoreless draw at the half-time interval.
Gustavo Hamer gave the visitors a surprise lead in the 73rd minute with a great finish. However, Spurs came roaring back in injury time as Richarlison scored the equaliser in the 98th minute before Dejan Kulusevski completed the turnaround just two minutes later with a great finish. The contest ended with Angelos Postecoglu’s men earning a last-gasp 2-1 win in front of their home fans.
