Spurs - DWWDW ------------- Sheffield LLL
DD

On the back of a brilliant start to life under Postecoglou,we resume Premier League duties at home to Sheffield United on Saturday afternoon. We demolished Burnley just before the international break, while the Blades picked up their first point in a 2-2 at home to Everton.

Spurs
The infamous Giorgio Chiellini clip began doing the rounds on social media once again when our EFL Cup journey ended with a penalty-shootout loss to Fulham in the second round, which closed off one avenue to a long-awaited trophy, and we side fell behind with just four minutes on the block against Burnley to a Lyle Foster's strike.

However, Son's delicate chip and a Romero thunderbolt turned the game on its head before the break, and the former completed a heroic hat-trick in the second half after the effervescent Maddison had picked out the bottom corner with aplomb.

Brownhill doubled Burnley's tally for the afternoon with seconds remaining, but there was no raining on our parade as we made it 10 points from a possible 12 in the 2023-24 Premier League season, cementing a second placed standing in the table as a result.

Having scored at least two goals in all of our Premier League games under Postecoglou so far - 11 in total to be exact - we have only been bested on the points tally by Manchester City, while Brighton & Hove Albion are the sole team to net more times than us 12 efforts to their name.

With hitherto struggling midfielders being given a new lease of life and old faces in attack shining, we could hardly be in a better position heading into our first North London derby at the Emirates on September 24, while a mouth watering home clash with Liverpool is also on the menu at the end of the month.




Sheffield
Everton number one Pickford was both Sheffield United's best friend and worst enemy at Bramall Lane two weeks ago, as Doucoure scored the Toffees' first Premier League goal of the season before Archer's crisp finish restored parity for the Blades, who then went ahead thanks to an enormous stroke of luck.

A second Archer strike hit the post before cannoning into the net off Pickford's back - akin to Martinez's own goal versus Arsenal back in February – but Danjuma crashed home at the back post to level the scores for Everton, who were then indebted to Pickford for an unbelievable double save to deny Oli McBurnie right at the death.

While Sheffield were left to rue what could have been, one point was still an improvement on their first three Premier League fixtures, and the 17th-placed Blades are keeping their heads above water for the time being thanks to the goal difference column.
