Sheffield Beat Tottenham To Boost Top Six Hopes

By Daily Sports on July 3, 2020

Sheffield United picked up their first win since the Premier League restarted as they produced a hugely impressive display against Tottenham to keep alive their hopes of playing European football next season.

Blades’ record signing Sander Berge opened his account for the club with a neat finish in the first half, completing a fine, attacking move by the hosts.

Harry Kane thought he had equalised moments later but his strike was controversially ruled out by VAR because of a handball by Lucas Moura in the build-up.

Spurs were unable to mount a response after that as they struggled to break through a strong Sheffield United defence.

Instead, Chris Wilder's men added a second midway through the second half when Lys Mousset turned in Enda Stevens' cutback from close range.

And an ultimately comfortable victory was completed in the closing stages as Oli McBurnie swept in for his fifth goal of the season.

Kane, who had another goal ruled out for offside at 2-0, finally got on the scoresheet when he steered in Son Heung-min's cross for his 13th goal of the season, but it was to be only a consolation strike.

Victory moves Sheffield United above their opponents into seventh in the Premier League, five points behind Manchester United and Wolves, who are fifth and sixth respectively.

Tottenham, who have not finished outside the top six since 2009, are ninth, seven points adrift of Wolves. (BBC)
