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.

Let’s take a look at how each Tottenham player performed during the match against the Blades.

GK: Guglielmo Vicario – 7/10

He made a few crucial saves at the back and did enough to restrict the opposition to just one goal.

RB: Pedro Porro – 7/10

The Spaniard got stuck in with a couple of solid tackles and managed to create some decent chances going forward.

CB: Cristian Romero – 7/10

He dealt with the danger when needed and was a lively presence on the ball.

CB: Micky van de Ven – 6.5/10

The Dutch talent made a few solid tackles but failed to keep a clean sheet today.
