Tottenham Hotspur will hope to bounce back from the disappointment of dropping points against Fulham in midweek when they visit the Premier League’s bottom club Sheffield United on Sunday.
Given the hosts’ record this term anything other than a win for Spurs would be a major shock and the north Londoners are offered at 3/5 (1.60) with bet365.
Chris Wilder’s side can be backed at 21/4 (6.25) with the draw priced at 11/4 (3.75).
The visitors are without Giovani Lo Celso, while Steven Bergwijn is a major doubt.
Erik Lamela returned to the bench for the game against Fulham, playing the last 15 minutes and could push for a starting berth.
The Blades are missing long-term injury absentees Sander Berge and Jack O’Connell, while Jack Robinson is also out and Oliver McBurnie is unlikely to feature.
Spurs have struggledto kill off matches in recent weeks, taking the lead against the likes of Crystal Palace, Wolves and Fulham only to concede late goals and fail to win.
A lack of attacking ambition has been a criticism levelled at Spurs and, in theory, a trip to the bottom side in the division is a chance for themto get among the goals.
In practice, however, Spurs’ scoring record does not inspire much confidence, with the north Londonersfailing to score more than a single goal away from home sinceOctober 4.
Mourinho’s men should still be able to see off a team with one of the poorest records since the inception of the Premier League, but there should be little interest in backing the visitors to run riot.
Tottenham to win and under 3.5 goals in the game is priced at 6/5 (2.20) and looks like an interesting option, one which pays out if Spurs win 1-0, 2-0, 2-1 or 3-0.
