TOT vs SHF Dream11 Match Prediction: Tottenham Hotspur is having an underwhelming Premier League so far but will look for some respite as they host a gutsy Sheffield United side.
In the last five games, Spurs has managed to win just the one game, while drawing two and losing two. As a result of their poor performances, Mauricio Pochettino’s men occupy the 11th spot in the league with just 13 points.
Meanwhile, recently promoted Sheffield United under the managerial leadership of Chris Wilder is having a ball in the Premier League. Sheffield with four wins, four draws and three defeats are in at sixth with 16 points on board. Some of the goals scored by Wilder’s men is making the headlines for free flowing football.
The test that awaits Tottenham is not at all easy, as Sheffield are more than capable of packing a punch.
Date- Saturday, November 9 | Kick-Off- 8:30 PM (IST) | Venue- Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
