Premier League newcomers Sheffield United head to North London to face Mauricio Pochettino's Tottenham Hotspur on Matchday 12 of the English Premier League. Tottenham are currently 11th on the table, whereas Chris Wilder's Sheffield United are in the top half of the table, sitting on sixth. Here is our Dream11 take on the game.
It seems that ill-luck has befallen Tottenham Hotspur this season. Mauricio Pochettino's side entered the 2019/20 season on the back of an excellent campaign, finishing fourth in the Premier League, reaching the semi-finals of the EFL Cup and also reaching the finals of the Champions League despite not making any signings that season. This season, however, it has all gone downhill for Spurs, domestically.
For the first time since Mauricio Pochettino took charge, Tottenham Hotspur find themselves in the bottom half of the Premier League table. One win in their last five Premier League outings means that Tottenham have failed to click in the Premier League this season. Contract rebel Christian Eriksen's form remains a worry whereas Tottenham are also a little light in defence. While they did secure a 4-0 win over Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League on Matchday 4, Sheffield United will prove to be a whole new challenge for Pochettino's men.
Sheffield United have enjoyed an impressive run in the Premier League this season after making the step up from the Championship. Four wins, four draws and just three losses means that Chris Wilder's side now have more points than the bottom two of Norwich City (7 points) and Watford (5 points) combined. John Lundstram starred in the Blades' 3-0 win over Burnley and has enjoyed some excellent form all season.
