Tottenham v Sheffield United: match preview

Sheffield United’s last visit to Tottenham, in November 2019, ended in a 1-1 draw that sent the Blades fifth in the table and signalled the end of Mauricio Pochettino’s reign as Spurs manager. Plenty has changed for both sides since, and mostly for the worse. A home fixture against relegated opponents offers Spurs caretaker Ryan Mason the chance to shake off a dismal few weeks following Super League protests, Harry Kane hinting at his departure and a painful Wembley defeat. Fellow temporary appointment Paul Heckingbottom earned his first win at home to Brighton last weekend, and with it a place on United’s shortlist for the permanent role. Niall McVeigh
