Tottenham vs Sheffield United odds
*Odds correct as of 8:10 on September 14
The loss of Harry Kane hasn’t affected Tottenham as they’re unbeaten after their opening four Premier League outings having won three and drawn the other. Ange Postecoglou’s side to date have registered a league-high 11 goals with those efforts spread across six different players.
Spurs have won seven of their last eight Premier League matches against newly promoted sides and are looking to make it three straight wins against Sheffield United, having done the double over the Blades the last time they faced each other in 2020/21.
Sheffield United, back in the big time, are still chasing a first win of this season. The newly-promoted side ended a three-game losing streak last time out when they played out a 2-2 draw against equally struggling Everton at home, which was their first draw in 27 Premier League games (W7 L20). The Blades have lost 14 of their 15 previous Premier League matches against sides starting the day in the top two and will need to be at their very best if they want to take anything at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
