Tottenham News and Form – Can Tottenham get a home win over the Blades?

Spurs looked to be heading for a win last weekend until they were denied at the death at Goodison Park by Everton. That moves Spurs on to a four-match run of league games without a win (D2 L2). It has been just the one win that they have taken in their last six played. In that run of six games, Spurs have failed to pick up a clean sheet. So it’s certainly not been a great season by their standards.

But there have been successes at home as Tottenham have taken a W3 D1 L1 record. In their last home fixture though, they were frustrated into a 1-1 draw against bottom side Watford. Spurs have averaged two goals per home fixture, which is a good solid return. They have conceded at under a goal per game on average as well. So that stats are there to support them on home soil.

It has been one clean sheet on home soil that Tottenham have earned this season. Son Heung-Min is available as his red card picked up against Everton last weekend was overturned. So he is available to play. Spurs have a W2 L3 record at half time on home soil this season, and all four goals against them at home have been in the first half of matches. Will they be able to take their chances against the Blades?
