Tottenham Hotspur welcome Sheffield United in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon as Ange Postecoglou’s side look to maintain their unbeaten start to the season. There are a lot of enticing markets in this fixture and we have picked out some of the best ones.
Tottenham remain without Giovani Lo Celso, Rodrigo Bentancur, Ryan Sessegnon and Bryan Gil for the visit of Sheffield United, but manager Postecoglou will be happy to see that defender Cristian Romero should be available after an injury scare during the international break.
Sheffield United are hopeful that forward Rhian Brewster will be available but it is likely he will be limited to a place on the bench if he is fit. Rhys Norrington-Davies, John Egan and Yasser Larouci will be looked at closely before the weekend.
Over 2.5 Spurs goals at EVS
The hosts headed into the international break on a high as they beat newly-promoted Burnley 5-2 at Turf Moor. Son Heung-min bagged a hat-trick in the centre-forward role, as Romero scored a stunner and James Maddison continued his fine start for his new club.
It is impressive just how quickly the Spurs players have taken to Postecoglou’s philosophy and it is yielding great results. The fans are delighted to see positive football and people are starting to see Spurs as top four contenders once more.
The Burnley match might have been the first game of the season where they scored more than two goals, but against another newly-promoted team in Sheffield United, another prolific afternoon seems possible.
Son will be buzzing after his hat-trick after a rough year personally on the field last term. Maddison is showing his credentials as the signing of the season with his dictating tempo in midfield.
Both these players are integral for how Spurs play under their new manager and we expect their stellar form to continue against the Blades.
Spurs to win both halves at 8/5
If Spurs can have another profitable afternoon in front of goal against Sheffield United like they did against Burnley then the hosts to win both halves feels like an excellent market to take a look at.
Tottenham have already experienced two games in the league this year in which they have won both halves, Burnley as already mentioned, and their 2-0 victory over AFC Bournemouth. Sheffield United are still searching for their first win of the season, having lost three and drawn one in their opening four fixtures.
If the rampant Spurs that demolished Burnley take to the field in north London on Saturday, the Blades could be put to the sword and be in for a long afternoon in the capital.
