STAR PREVIEW: Sheffield United v Spurs

[dropcap]D[/dropcap]ecent profit of 13.75 points last night thanks to the draw between Chelsea and Liverpool (after 90 minutes) and the column is now 75.18 points up since the start of the World Cup last year !!!

Tonight we get to find out who will be making the trip to Wembley to join Chelsea in the final.

Spurs hold a slender 1-0 lead after the first leg and come into this on the back of being dumped out of the FA Cup on Saturday by Leicester, despite leading in the game.

Spurs continue to leak goals and have now not kept a clean sheet in their last 11 away matches.

A one goal deficit was probably the best that Nigel Clough could have hoped for after their first leg at White Hart Lane and the Sheffield United manager is set to recall several of his key senior players tonight.

The series of shock results over the weekend in the FA Cup has given him renewed optimism. He said: “I read some quotes from Bradford players saying the Friday night game, where Cambridge drew 0-0 at home against Manchester United, gave them inspiration and belief.”

“We are going to try to use the weekend in the same sort of way. But the other side of it is that it will have put Spurs on high alert – if the first leg didn’t already – that if you are not careful, lower-league teams can cause you a problem. I think they may be a bit more relaxed at Bramall Lane, because they have a one-goal lead and the onus is very much on us now to go and create.”

Both teams to score is a coin flip on the Star Sports market but I’m going YES as I think there will be goals and hopefully I can rely on Spurs to concede some again.
