Tottenham – Sheffield United: The final chapter of Spurs’ disastrous 2020-21 season is set to be written, beginning with a battle with the Blades at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday (Watch live at 2:15 pm ET, on NBCSN and online via NBCSports.com).
Having lost the League Cup final over the weekend, Tottenham must once again pick themselves up after a final defeat if they are to qualify for European competition next season. The side temporarily managed by 29-year-old Ryan Mason sits 7th heading into the weekend — five points back of 4th-place Chelsea, two back of 5th-place West Ham United and one back of 6th-place Liverpool. This season’s 7th-place finished will qualify for the soon-to-debut Europa Conference League, but Tottenham will need Europa League (at a minimum) to recruit the caliber of players required to begin this summer’s rebuild.
Sheffield United will undergo a rebuild of different sorts this summer, as the Blades have already been officially relegated from the Premier League. A handful of key players will likely leave for higher pastures, thus injecting a significant amount of cash into the transfer fund for a run at a return promotion at the first time of asking.

Spurs should set out to actually attack Sheffield United, unlike they did against Manchester City, which should result in a fine performance complete with cohesive attacking football and a few goals to boot. Spurs 3-1 Sheffield United.
