PremierLeague: Tottenham vs Sheffield Utd

Tottenham will host Sheffield United in the 34th round of the Premier League, an important match for the home team. When the prospect of being absent from the continental playground next season is very close to Spurs. Of course, before an early relegation opponent like Sheffield Utd, it is hard to believe if "Rooster" will lose points after next game.

Tottenham vs Sheffield Utd

Tottenham - Premier League

A lot has happened at Spurs on and off the pitch in recent weeks. It is noteworthy that coach Jose Mourinho had to receive a citation just before the Carabao Cup final. On the field, the last 5 matches Tottenham have only 1 win and they defended very badly when they did not keep a clean sheet and conceded 9 times. Losing to Man City in the League Cup final was no problem as they were led by inexperienced manager Ryan Mason. All Tottenham aim now is a place in the top 4 but with 5 points difference, perhaps a Europa League place should be considered.

In order to achieve a set goal, weaknesses in defense must be addressed. Because the home team has had 3 times in the last 5 matches to concede from two or more goals. Their home form is better, with 4 wins in their last 5 matches and they have scored at least two goals in those 4 wins. However, Tottenham did not have a clean sheet in the last 3 home matches and conceded two or more goals. Currently "Rooster" is only 1 point behind Everton and has kicked more than 1 match. So, if you are not careful in the last 5 rounds, it is likely that Tottenham must pay a very expensive price.

Sheffield Utd - Premier League

In the second consecutive season in the Premier League, Sheffield Utd immediately showed a disappointing face and as a result, they had to play in the Championship next season. After 33 matches, the away team only won 5 draws 2 and received 26 defeats. With only 17 points meager, Sheffield Utd is at the bottom of the table and has definitely relegated when the tournament has only 5 matches remaining. Although they just won 1-0 over Brighton in their most recent match. However, Sheffield Utd has 6 losses in the last 7 matches and has no more goals to strive for.

In the last 5 matches, Sheffield Utd failed to score in 3 matches while conceding 2 or more in 3/5 matches. Besides Sheffield Utd only scored 2 goals in the last 5 matches, the visitors also conceded 11 goals in the above time period and kept only 1 clean sheet. Away from home, they hope to prevent a streak of six consecutive defeats to regain their honor. However, it is difficult for Sheffield United to do that, because they cannot score in the last 5/6 matches as a guest in the Premier League. Of course there is still a bit of support for Sheffield United to rely on, because 5 times they welcomed Tottenham in the past they were unbeaten with 3 wins and 2 draws.
