Tottenham Hotspur will host Sheffield United on Saturday for their Matchday 12 Premier League clash. Mauricio Pochettino will be looking to build on his side's midweek performance against Red Star and improve his side's fortunes in the league.
Sheffield United recorded an impressive 3-0 win over Burnley last Saturday and will be full of confidence ahead of their trip to London. The Blades have exceeded expectations massively this season and can be a tough task for Spurs. Chris Wilder has just one injury concern ahead of this match as John Egan came off with a knock last week and is a doubt for the fixture. Lys Mousset came back into the side last week after scoring in his previous two games and he continued his good form by providing three assists.

Tottenham Hotspur have had their fair share of struggles this season and surprisingly lie below Sheffield in the Premier League table. Mauricio Pochettino has been scrutinised time and time out again but also has repeatedly been backed by the club management. If their midweek performance in Belgrade is any indicator, we can be looking at another dominating performance by the home side. Jan Vertonghen and Erik Lamela (both thigh) are unlikely to feature along with Hugo Lloris, who has undergone elbow surgery.
