The home side has always scored at least twice and has never lost in the six previous Premier League meetings between Tottenham and Sheffield United (W4 D2). Spurs are 2.56/4 to win half-time/full-time.

Tottenham are winless in four Premier League games (D2 L2), having last had a longer run earlier this year (5 games in February/March). In 2017 and 2018 combined, the Lilywhites only had one winless run of 4+ Premier League games (November/December 2017). A Sheffield United win is 6.411/2.

Sheffield United have lost just one away league game in 2019 (W6 D9 L1) - no team in the top-four tiers of English football have lost fewer (also Liverpool on one). They are 2.68/5 to avoid defeat in the Double Chance market.

Sheffield United have conceded just eight goals in their 11 Premier League games so far - no team has conceded fewer. Under 2.5 goals is 2.1211/10.

Sheffield United will be the 29th different side Tottenham striker Harry Kane has faced in the Premier League - he's scored against all previous 28 clubs he's played against, making him the only player to have scored against 100% of the opponents he's faced in the competition (min. 2 opponents). Kane is 1.834/5 to score.

Sheffield United striker Lys Mousset has been involved in five goals in his last three Premier League appearances (2 goals, 3 assists), one more than in his first 63 appearances in the competition (4 goals). Mousset is 4.57/2 to add to his tally.

Tottenham's Dele Alli has scored in 39 Premier League games without losing (W31 D8 L0) - only Darius Vassell (46) and James Milner (53) have scored in more without ending on the losing side in Premier League history. Spurs will be hoping that Alli can get on the scoresheet at 3.613/5.
