Sheffield United v Tottenham: Prediction, Tips and Odds

It has been an underwhelming end to the season for Tottenham, but they can seal fifth place in the Premier League if they avoid defeat at bottom club Sheffield United on the final day.

Tuesday's home loss to Manchester City ended Spurs' hopes of a top-four finish and qualifying for next season's Champions League and they still have work to do if they are to hold off fast-finishing Chelsea in the battle for fifth.

Spurs will head into Sunday's final round of fixtures sitting three points ahead of their London rivals and a draw at Bramall Lane would be enough to seal fifth regardless of Chelsea's result against Bournemouth.

On paper, avoiding defeat against the already-relegated Blades should be pretty straightforward, with Sunday's hosts set to end the season with one of the lowest points tallies in Premier League history.

Tottenham and over 3.5 goals - 21/20

While a run of five defeats across their last six games has taken the shine off things slightly, this has still been a relatively successful first season in charge for Ange Postecoglou at Tottenham.

Spurs have picked up more points, wins and scored more goals than they managed last season and are on course to finish three places higher in the division.

A 20th league win of the campaign should certainly be forthcoming for Spurs when they visit a Sheffield United side that have long since had their relegation confirmed.

The Blades have lost six matches on the bounce, are winless in 13 and if they lose on Sunday, they will finish the season with the joint-third lowest points tally in Premier League history - with their total of 16 only being beaten by Sunderland (2005/06) and the infamous Derby team of 2007/08.

Chris Wilder's side have already set one unwanted record this season, as they have conceded 101 goals - the most in Premier League history - and it is a tally Spurs will expect to add to on the final day.

United have kept only one clean-sheet all season in the top flight and have shipped four or more goals in nine separate matches.

Over 3.5 goals has been a winning bet in 14 of the Blades' last 17 league games and in four of Spurs' previous seven, so goals, and an away win, would seem the order of the day for this one.

Over 3.5 cards in the match - 5/4

This may be the final match of the season, but there could still be a bit of spice to the occasion, with the Blades hoping to sign off from the Premier League on a rare positive note and Spurs still looking to lock down fifth place.

The statistics show that these two are among the more ill-disciplined sides in the division, as only Chelsea and Wolves have picked up more yellow cards than Sheffield United's total of 93, with Spurs accumulating just four fewer than the Blades.

With a total of nine red cards between them as well this season, it is fair to suggest that referee Andy Madley may be kept busy on Sunday.

Spurs alone have averaged over three yellow cards per game across their last three matches, so if Postecoglou's side continue that trend in South Yorkshire, then over 3.5 cards in the match would appear a strong possibility. 

Dejan Kulusevski to score anytime - 15/8

Dejan Kulusevski was only introduced as a substitute during Spurs' midweek defeat to Manchester City, but he looked a threat and forced a couple of decent saves from visitors' goalkeeper Stefan Ortega.

The Swede may well have done enough in that cameo appearance to force his way back into Postecoglou's starting XI and he will certainly have good memories of facing the Blades.

He scored the winner ten minutes into second-half stoppage time when the two teams met at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in September.

That was one of six goals Kulusevski has scored this season - his best Premier League return to date - and although he hasn't been prolific throughout his time in English football, he will fancy his chances of netting against the Blades once again.
