The FA Cup returns in midweek with the fifth round as 16 must become eight, with teams edging closer to that trip to Wembley. Sheffield United are one of seven non-Premier League sides still in the competition at this stage and will be looking to reach the quarter-finals of the FA Cup for the third time in four years.

It’s worth noting that both of those quarter-final appearances came while Sheffield United were still a Premier League side. Nonetheless, the Blades entered the FA Cup at the third round and beat fellow Championship side Millwall before breaking Wrexham hearts after a replay last time out.

Tottenham have fallen at this stage of the FA Cup in each of the past three seasons, beaten by Norwich, Everton and Middlesbrough – the latter being lower-league opposition. It’s now been five years since they last reached the quarter-finals of the FA Cup, having also been knocked out at the fourth round in 2018/18, with back-to-back semi-final appearances in 2015/16 and 2016/17.

So far this season Tottenham have faced two lower-league sides in the FA Cup, first drawn against League One’s Portsmouth before beating Preston of the Championship. Tottenham also go into this game off the back of a big win at the weekend, beating Chelsea for the first time at their new stadium.

Sheffield United vs Tottenham match stats

It may be a second-half showdown at Bramall Lane on Wednesday. All four of Tottenham’s FA Cup goals this season have come in the second halves of their matches. Their earliest strikes coincidentally both came in the 50th minute, with Harry Kane netting the only goal against Portsmouth and Son Heung-min opening the scoring vs Preston.

Even if Tottenham rotate, you can expect Harry Kane to start and continue his recent good run of form despite having to recover from illness. Kane has hit the target at least twice in six of his last 11 Premier League matches and found the net against Chelsea last time out.
