Date published: Wednesday 1st July 2020 3:19

When is Sheffield United v Tottenham?

Barring any health emergencies, the game is scheduled to take place on Thursday July 2.

What time does Sheffield United v Tottenham kick-off?

The game is scheduled for a 6pm kick-off and is the first of a Premier League double-bill that day, with Manchester City v Liverpool following it at 8.15pm.

What is at stake?

Only one point separates the two sides in the Premier League table, so it’s clearly an enormous game in the race for European qualification.

Tottenham currently have a one-point advantage over their hosts, mainly due to the Blades’ wretched form since the restart.

Champions League qualification looks beyond both sides, due in part to the fine form of the clubs above them, but the Europa League is a viable target and would represent a decent return for both given recent context.

Where can I watch Sheffield United v Tottenham?

The match will be broadcast by Sky Sports.

Is Sheffield United v Tottenham free-to-air?

It’s not, no. You are going to need a Sky Sports subscription or a Now TV pass in order to watch this one, but a pass may represent excellent value given it would also include the Man City v Liverpool game that follows this one.

What is the team news?

Sheffield United are sweating on the fitness of John Lundstram and Jack O’Connell, but Chris Wilder has not ruled either of them out. Sander Berge and Billy Sharpe are pushing for recalls as the Blades try to get their season back on track.

Tottenham have no fresh injury concerns but may consider recalls for Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghan, Tanguy Ndombele, Harry Winks, and Steven Bergwijn.

What happened in the reverse match?

Son Heung-Min and George Baldock were on target as the sides played out a 1-1 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in November.

What are the odds?

Tottenham are the 19/20 favourites to win this one, with Sheff Utd priced at 3/1. You can back the draw at 5/2.
