Sheffield United and Tottenham face off today in a key clash for both clubs' hopes of European football next term.

Sheffield United vs Tottenham: Team news

Sheffield United midfielder John Lundstram is a doubt for the visit of Tottenham.

Lundstram could miss out after an arm injury forced him off in the FA Cup defeat to Arsenal on Sunday.

Blades boss Chris Wilder has said that Jack O'Connell is 'back on the grass' following an impact injury in training before the restart.

Tottenham, meanwhile, have no new injury concerns to contend with.

Defenders Juan Foyth and Japhet Tanganga are the only two absentees for the game at Bramall Lane.

Boss Jose Mourinho now has an embarrassment of attacking riches and will likely rotate his side.

Provisional Sheffield United squad: Henderson, Moore, Verrips, O'Connell, Robinson, Basham, Egan, Baldock, Lundstram, Stevens, Berge, Fleck, Norwood, McBurnie, Sharp, Freeman, Mousset, Clarke, Zivkovic, McGoldrick, Jagielka, Rodwell, Osborn.

Provisional Tottenham squad: Lloris, Vorm, Gazzaniga, Aurier, Sanchez, Dier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Davies, Sessegnon, Winks, Lo Celso, Ndombele, Sissoko, Fernandes, Skipp, Alli, Moura, Lamela, Son, Kane, Bergwijn.

Sheffield United vs Tottenham: Match stats

Sheffield United are unbeaten in their last five top-flight home games against Spurs (W3 D2) since a 1-2 loss in December 1975.

Tottenham have won their last four Premier League games in Yorkshire, and are unbeaten in their last seven in the county (W6 D1) since a 1-2 loss to Sheffield United in February 2007.

Tottenham's last competitive match in July was in the 1995 Intertoto Cup, with the London side losing 0-8 to FC Köln in Germany.

Tottenham have never lost in 12 previous Premier League games played on Thursdays (W7 D5), the best unbeaten record on a single day of the week for a club in the competition.

Sheffield United have failed to score in their last three Premier League games (D1 L2). They haven't failed to score in four consecutive league games since April 2000 under Neil Warnock.

Having conceded 3+ goals in just one of their first 29 Premier League games this season, Sheffield United have lost both of their last two by a 0-3 scoreline. The Blades have only lost three consecutive league matches under Chris Wilder once previously, losing three in a row in December 2017 in the Championship.

Sheffield United have failed to have more than one shot on target in any of their three Premier League matches since the season resumed.

Tottenham Hotspur are unbeaten in their last 23 Premier League away games against newly promoted teams (W19 D4), since a 0-1 defeat to QPR in April 2012.

Tottenham manager José Mourinho has won 199 of his 324 Premier League games in charge. Victory here will see him become the fifth manager to register 200 wins in the competition, with only Alex Ferguson reaching the milestone in fewer games (322).

Tottenham striker Harry Kane has scored 198 goals in 345 games in all competitions at club level in his career (five for Leyton Orient, nine for Millwall, two for Leicester and 182 for Tottenham). Kane has also scored 10 goals in just nine appearances in Yorkshire - however, Sheffield United are the only side Kane has faced in the Premier League without scoring against.

Sheffield United and Tottenham face off today in a key clash for both clubs' hopes of European football next term.
